Do you have a big “but”?
No, I don’t mean as in the one you try to wriggle into your skinny jeans each morning.
I mean a big “but”, as in an excuse, a crutch, a reason not to tackle something you know you should.
Last year, while searching for a video clip as part of my church’s Creative Arts Team, I came across a hilarious video about some of the big “buts” we all have when it comes to our walk with God.
Click here if you want to catch this convicting, yet humorous three minute clip. (Be sure to come back for the big “but” giveaway.)
I am convinced (because I’ve seen it in my own life) that one of the biggest areas where we pull out our big “buts” is when it comes to our eating and exercising habits (or lack thereof!)
My friend and ministry partner Lysa TerKeurst, author of the New York Times bestseller Made to Crave and its awesome companion products, is hosting a free webcast this coming Monday , February 20th on our big “buts”. Her book helps you satisfy your deepest desire with God, not food. She says this about the webcast:
We all face obstacles too big to overcome yet some find victory while others live in defeat. Could the difference be our buts?
Learn how to turn your “but I…”excuses into “but God…” exclamations with every obstacle you face! If you’ve ever struggled to overcome an area of defeat in your life, this 30 minute Biblical teaching will give you an amazing fresh start.
This teaching series can be done alone or with a group and it is sure to arm you with some determination to get over your big “but”, whatever it may be.
I did this study at my church last winter with a group of 27 gals from many churches and walks of life. You will LOVE it!!!
Now, in order to be entered, simply leave a comment here with what your biggest “but” is when it comes to eating healthy, moving more or placing something (or someone!) else before your relationship with God.
I’ll bare my “but” and go first…..
“But, I am sick and tired of fighting to get to (or sometimes stay at) a healthy weight. It isn’t fair some women seem to eat whatever they want and still be naturally thin. Now, hand over the cheesecake. I am depressed!”
Now show us your big “but”! Winners announced Monday.
