Day Seventy-Two: Voluntary Amnesia

And yet again, I was inspired by something that my pastor said in church on Sunday. I was looking through the verses that he shared in his sermon series American Jesus, and here was one of them…

For while I was with you, I made up my mind to forget everything except Jesus Christ and his death on the cross.
1 Corinthians 2:2

It ties in a bit with what I was discussing yesterday… about my mind starting to transcend out of the pit of food addictions into thinking about Jesus Christ. And I think that this is almost like a goal verse for me… I want to forget everything except Jesus Christ and his death on the cross. I want that to almost be a watermark in my vision of the way I view the world… I want Him, His Death, and His coming back to Life being at the forefront of my mind all. the. time.

And ya know, when you think about things in that light, a chocolateless life is… no biggie. It’s forgotten. A pastaless life… who cares?

Because I am making up my mind right now to forget everything except Jesus and His death.

(And that’s why this post is so short… I have forgotten everything else. Haha! Just kidding. But it is short because that verse is so succinct and I just didn’t have anything else to add!)
