Day 11 of 21
Spending Quiet Time With God
As the demands of everyday life weigh down upon you, you may become so wrapped up in your obligations that you just don't take enough time for God. A far better strategy, of course, is to quiet yourself every day.
I can remember a time (not too long ago) when I used to battle IBS & Acid Reflux like nobody's business. Doctor appointment after doctor appointment... test after test... after ever fiber supplement you can imagine, after wearing heart monitors, after a colonoscopy, after ALMOST caving in and thinking I was just going to be in pain for the rest of my life...
I got desperate. Desperate enough to search for a natural solution.
I've never been overweight. But I've had unhealthy habits. I (unfortunatetly) was wrong to think a bag of daily gummy bears and boxed hamburger helper for dinner was a decent diet. When those same doctors asked if I was a healthy eater, my snarky answer was always, "yes!" However, my definition of healthy eating at the time was eating one bowl of fruity pebbles instead of three.
THEN I BEGAN TO RESEARCH FOOD & HOW IT CAN BE OUR MEDICINE
In search for a natural detox / cleanse, I came across a health shake that I was willing to give a try. After all, I had reached my wits end. And what do ya know ... this "shake" that I originally thought I was too good for IMMEDIATELY changed the function of my dysfunctional body. It was like putting gas in my car for the first time in years.
Apparently pumping our bodies with the right vitamins DOES magically make our organs, intestines, skin, brain and stomach happy. I was hooked.
SO :: My question to you, what does your kitchen look like? Are you stocking your fridge and pantry with NUTRITIOUS food (and not just empty calories)? Or are you feeling crappy, bloated, sluggish and foggy... and in denial that it could be food related?

Remember, you are not only developing habits to workout & eat right... you are developing (more importantly) the discipline to meet with God daily. "A person with no devotional life generally struggles with faith and obedience." Charles Stanley
