We’ve all heard the saying, “You are what you eat!” I’m not sure about the truth in that because, if true, I’d be a leaf of lettuce with legs! My good friend and I jokingly say, “We hope the good Lord doesn’t put us in charge of the lettuce patch in heaven because we’ve eaten enough lettuce here on earth to last us forever!”
All kidding aside. Many years ago the Lord strongly convicted me with the scripture, Whatever your hand finds to do – do it with all your might. Ecclesiastes 9.10 Perhaps one wouldn’t necessarily relate that to eating but for me it sure fit and my conviction became stronger as I read and meditated on 1 Corinthians 10.31. If my body is the temple of Holy Spirit, and it is, (1 Corinthians 6.19) – why would I want to abuse it with the wrong foods? It just seemed so “black and white” to me.
Now, I don’t want to be legalistic about it but I want to strive to do better! Sure there are still food cravings – I simply love pizza and at times I crave a piece of cheesecake. But, I’ve learned how to make healthy versions of my favorite things!
Bon Appétit, in Jesus’ Name…
Now, for a couple of “sweets” printables!
Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health, as it goes well with your soul. 3 John verse 2
