While you're busy getting and making presents for all of your Family and Friends did you remember to include God on that list? His wish list is not very big but it is powerful! All He asks is that you take care of His gift of Life - you! That's right! Your life is a gift from God. What you do with it is your gift back to God.
Take good care of your body - it is the temple of your soul.In fact, staying smoke free is a tremendous gift to God - and to yourself. The healing process begins the minute you put out that last ever sickerette. Did you ever wonder why your hands and feet are icicles winter and summer?
In less time than it takes to watch a sitcom, your body’s already getting better. After 20 minutes, your pulse and blood pressure start to drop back to normal. And your hands and feet warm up to their usual temperature.So it's a lot more than standing outside in every kind of weather smoke up another sickerette so fast that you find that you have time for 2!
You have already begun the most important mind skill - that which leads to maturity and wisdom - discipline.
"For the moment all discipline seems painful rather than pleasant, but later it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it. " Hebrews 12:11
And you feed your Soul!
"For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control." 2 Timothy 1:7
The Best gift you can give yourself this Christmas is to become Smoke Free! And the best gift you can give the Lord is to become Smoke FREE! That's why there are blessings after blessings that unfold as we pursue a life of Addiction Freedom!
LLAP! Merry Christmas!
