Good morning mighty warriors of the Faith.  Today I’m choosing to make a change in my life.  For many years I have dealt with two big issues, anger and and my weight.  Today I’m tired of holding on to them and I want to give them to God.  And I want to show you how I’m going to do this so you can do the same.  Read with me our verse of the day. 

Living by the Spirit’s Power  

So I say, let the Holy Spirit guide your lives. Then you won’t be doing what your sinful nature craves.

Galatians 5:16 NLT

It is my sinful nature that holds me back from truly giving my all to God.  When I’m angry my mind is not on the things of the Lord my focus is away from God.  When I eat food that is not good for me or drink soda, these things are harming my health.  Then I’m not a good steward of this body God has given me to take care of.  So everyday I must let the spirit of God and his power lead me, so that when I feel anger developing in me I will keep my eyes on Christ.  When I am going to eat, I’m going to choose healthy foods.  I will only drink water, I’m going to allow the spirit of God to give me the strength to make great decisions.  My friends, today choose to be lead by the spirit and his power so that we can sin less.  We are all sinners according to God’s word but living by the power of the spirit, we can sin less.  

Blessings to you today Chaplain Fernando Charles.
