Going into this whole30 meal plan in about 6 days knowing that I am not condemned if I fail is why I have been able to tell our close friends that my husband and I are going to be participating in it. Our friends are there to support us and love us… even if after 6 hours we decide to bail on the entire thing (wink wink, Alli).
This is a beautiful thing. Resting in knowing I am free to fail, to succeed, to struggle, to thrive. Because Christ has already accomplished everything for me.
There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death. For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do. By sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, he condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit.
Romans 8: 1-5
