what are you stuffed with?

"... be filled with the Spirit." Ephesians 5:18

The Thanksgiving holiday is over, and now i feel like the stuffed turkey. Yet who could resist all those incredible edibles? Turkey, dressing, gravy, ham, beans, mac and cheese, corn pudding, fruit salad, sweet potato casserole, rolls, pies, cakes, etc.  Of course now several pounds heavier, i wish i had!  For those moments of pleasure, i'll be paying the price for quite awhile. 

There is one area we can overindulge AND reap wondrous benefits now and later.   Live a life being constantly filled with the Spirit.  The more of the Spirit we allow to permeate our lives, the more we can live the godly life we are called to live and experience His peace and love.  Plus, not only do we benefit, but all those around us do too.  

friend, we are loved and chosen by God,
