Day 29 of 500
“So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.” 1Cor 10:31
My work involves a lot of travel. That makes it hard to stop and enjoy my meals. It does however make me really appreciate the time I get to spend around a table with my family.
I have tried to eat better even when traveling. I started the day an all natural homemade protein shake. I even managed to find a quinoa salad for lunch. Snacks were small portions of nuts, cheese and fruits. For supper my wonderful wife had tasty steamed garlic broccoli and rotisserie chicken.
Eating right makes me feel better. And not just physically. It makes me feel as if I’m living in obedience to God’s Word. I have too often neglected my temple. The old saying goes, “A stitch in time, saves nine.” Too often in the past I have slid into bad habits and only corrected those when my weight would hit a certain number, my jeans would get a little too tight or my sugar would refuse to come down. Instead however I need to manage my food everyday to keep my body in optimum shape.
Try something different today. It can be a little change. Today I brought baked snap peas for a snack. That was different, but good.
“Taste and see that the LORD is good. Oh, the joys of those who take refuge in him!” Psalm 34:8
Dear Lord give me the desire to seek what You have for me. You have placed so many good things for me in the garden, help me choose to eat from those that lead to life.
