Scripture: “So then let us not sleep, as others do, but let us keep awake and be sober.”
1 Thessalonians 5:6
Hello Precious One!
We are heading into the busy part of May! Bridal wreath spiraea is blooming, school is winding down for some, graduations for others, children coming home from college – basically lots going on! Memorial Day is only two weeks away! How is that possible?!
This is a great time to reflect how you will spend your summer and stay grounded and supported in Light Weigh One King & Light Weigh. Your group gives you so much, that it can be easy to take it for granted. Everyone is busy, but it really takes little time to meet once a week, and like taking the time to pray during your day, it makes all the difference! God designed us to need each other and coming together builds automatic support. This is why Jesus says – “Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” Matthew 18:19-20 God is not only encouraging us to come together, He explains the absolute difference it will make!
Now is a great time to start or continue a One King or Light Weigh group, because if you do, you will stay connected this summer and start the fall strong. Groups that fall away during summer months always regret it, because it is just harder to get the momentum back, as well as the members.
One of the keys to doing One King and Light Weigh is – doing it! For the majority, one session is not going to give you peace with food that lasts. The reason for this is that we all have to work through different things. Some are impatient with this, and this is so natural! We want the quick fix right away. Jesus is The Fix, but God works over time. How many times have I heard how He works in a member’s life in ways they did not expect and are truly amazing! It takes time because God is working and filling our heart hole with what you receive in Light Weigh programs; to get to the underlying reasons we are turning to food and tempted to eat more than our body requires, even in some cases, tempted to eat less. This is how true healing and transformation takes place. Many diets or surgical procedures are “presto chango!” - But not really. The underlying problems are still there and this is why weight is regained.
Make your summer count this summer! It will be so fun to keep going! Draw closer to Jesus and Mary by setting aside the 90 minutes for your One King or Light Weigh meeting. Start a group or stay with your group! Use the time you are given now to allow God to work in you and give you the healing you seek. Schedule your room and orientation today for this summer – you will only be glad you did!
