I never post about food, or weight, or health or stuff like that. But there’s a first time for everything. I’m posting as a sort of accountability for myself.
|“…there was a little left at the very bottom of the jar,
and he pushed his head right in…”
The Bible says, “Whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.” I Cor 10:31
The Holy Spirit has convicted me that eating is an area of my life which I have not allowed God to take control of.
|“‘Tiggers don’t like Honey’|
I eat when I am stressed – which has been a lot lately.
I eat out of “peer pressure” or “socially” – which means I am letting others and not God have control of my eating patterns.
I reward myself with unhealthy food, saying, “Let’s get a treat.”
I eat late at night when I am alone.
I eat at fast food restaurants multiple times a week because I am always on the road.
These thoughts are temptations which I often give in to and I believe Satan has used them to sap me of some of my ability to glorify God.
I am often tired and lack energy.
I have stomach issues and headaches almost daily.
I don’t have the strength to run around and play with Kymee as I want to.
I’m going to take God at His word and choose to receive His promise,
“Let him who thinks he stands take heed that he does not fall. No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it.” I Cor. 12 – 13
|“…Christopher Robin finished the mouthful he was eating
and said carelessly: “I saw a Heffalump to-day, Piglet.”
So my goals for this week are this:
Eat what God has made and not what man has made (eat clean)
Replace white food with healthier options
NO fast food – be prepared to eat healthy food in the car
Precook and prepare so that I can provide delicious, simple, fast-cooking meals and snacks for my family.
Enjoy the meals and snacks God has given me to prepare.
|“As soon as he got home, he went to the larder; and he stood on a
chair, and took down a very large jar of honey from the top shelf.”
