I have been including less content this week at the blog because I know that many of you are joining the Weight Loss Bible Study a bit late or feel like you are “behind.”

But today’s question is significant, so I hope you will give it some prayer and thought.

Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect,

but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own.

Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own.

But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead,

I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

Philiippians 3:12-14

I want to focus on a little statement in the middle of this passage: “But one thing I do.”

Sometimes, as we look at the BIG picture of our weight, our issues with the way we think or the HUGE task ahead of us, we go on tilt. If you are anything like me, this can cause you to…well…simply…just SHUT DOWN.

We have to get away from looking at that big picture. The big picture of our holiness is God’s burden. He wants me to conquer this moment for Him.

So I want to issue a challenge and I would love your feedback today!

What ONE THING will you do today?

What is one thing that you can do–TODAY–that will help propel you forward?  One thing that hard, perhaps, but that you know you can do today? One thing that you know you need Christ’s strength to do because you know you are too weak to manage it?

Will it be to have one less cup of coffee? (I know that may not sound tough to some of us, but to others of us, we are convinced we need it!)

Will it be to take 15 minutes to truth journal?

Will it be to open the bible and be still for a few minutes?

Will it be to confess?

Will it be to say no to a particular food that you know has mastery over you?

What one thing…TODAY. I am not asking you to commit to this for a week or a month or longer, but just TODAY. What one thing will you do TODAY that is different than all the other days and times when you wanted to be free in the area of eating and body image?

Tell us in the comments what it is…AND be entered into next week’s drawing by doing so.

Let us know what ONE THING you will do TODAY and we can pray for one another as we read the comments!
