Thanksgiving Week

Here we are, the end of November and Thanksgiving is just around the corner. This is an opportunity for many to take a break from the routine and spend time with family and friends; a time to stop, and be thankful. For most people, Thanksgiving is a time of feasting, of enjoying family traditions that have been passed down from generations. And there is nothing wrong with traditions. However, this year you have so diligently worked on not allowing food to control you, yet this holiday can seem a bit daunting. You know that it is about a time to reflect and be thankful for all the Lord has done, but let’s be honest, it’s also about the food. So . . . Can this year be different? Can I actually have victory and NOT undo everything I have done over the past months all because of one day? Which you and I both know is NEVER just one day….it eventually bleeds through the weekend~ because Heck, it’s Thanksgiving weekend! Here at the Grace and Strength Lifestyle, we want to encourage you with some helpful tips going into this Thanksgiving weekend.

  • Have a plan. Be prepared mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Be in the Word! God is the one who will give you the strength to be self-controlled. So when Monday morning comes, there are no regrets
  • Set boundaries for yourself. The enemy wants nothing more than for this day to be about the food and not about reflecting on God’s faithfulness. Don’t let him win the battle for your mind.
  • Meditate on passages of Scripture that will help you reflect on what is most important that day. Write them on post-it notes or 3x5 cards and have them in your pocket
  • Set yourself up for success! Reach out to someone for accountability. Ask them to text you throughout the weekend and especially that morning to encourage you to stay focused
  • Speak truth over lies that the enemy may try to sabotage you with. Walk in confidence, knowing Jesus will give you the strength! He goes before you!
  • Also have a plan in place for after Thanksgiving! So often we are all prayed up and prepared for the day, but it’s the next day of lattes and leftovers that can set you back even farther.

This year stop and think about what Thanksgiving means for YOU. As you reflect about what the Lord has done, our prayer is that this holiday becomes more about Jesus and less about the food. As followers of Jesus, you have the power of the Living God residing inside of you. Now walk in victory and Happy Thanksgiving!
