Waste: (of a person or a part of the body) become progressively weaker and more emaciated.
When I was younger and would express how “starving” I was, I would often have a relative poke fun at me by saying something like: “Oh, you must just be wasting away!”
And when planning for this post, I remembered this. The message that I feel led to give is this:
Many are wasting away. Many are starving themselves spiritually and aren’t getting the proper “nutrients” in their walk with Christ. And because of this, they are starving. They’re becoming weaker and weaker. And now is the time to do something about it.
To those people, I say this: You’re not defeated and you’re not done. You can pick yourself back up and put in the work. You can be revived once again. And you can be restored.
You are never too far gone. God will always accept you.
Come back to Him today. It’s possible, and He’s waiting.
