A Lapse is Not a Relapse
Monday, July 06, 2020
A lapse is not a relapse. One choice that’s not as healthy does not undo all the other healthy choices we’ve made. That one choice also doesn’t mean we have to keep making unhealthy choices all day until morning and start over.
Look, one unhealthy choice has far less impact than a whole day of them! Think 500 calories versus a thousand or more!
A lapse is just a choice. A relapse is when we totally fall and can’t get up. Call Life Alert! Here they come! They tell you that they need our help to move us and get us up. They do not do all the work. But notice we did call Life Alert. We did the work when they came to help, and WE DID NOT GIVE UP, WE GOT UP!
Who or what serves as your Life Alert?
I pray. I become very introspective. God is my life alert. He has sent me great friends to talk to by phone when I’m feeling hungry and unmanageable.
