Apparently, back to back business trips plus thanksgiving plus more business travel equals more fat. I know it’s my fault. No one forced me to eat the company paid for food. All they had to do was stick it in front of my face. My mouth did the rest. I wish they could just make salads taste like actual food. If a salad tasted like pizza I would eat it everyday. I’d be the healthiest man on the planet. Of course in that planet, salads would be bad for you and pizza would be the healthy choice. Cause that’s how things work.
If you look up the word nutrition you’ll get something like this: Nutrition- the science that interprets the interaction of nutrients and other substances in food in relation to maintenance, growth…..blah blah. Dang it science! What happened to the good ol days when things could be explained by magic. Science you ruined everything. In the good old days people didn’t know what made them fat. Oh well, must have been that dang magic again. In the meantime, I’ll just keep eating those lovely homemade pies. But noooooo…science happened. Now we know we can’t eat donuts for every meal. We had to go around and label things like calories and trans fats. We used to say things were made with love, now we really know it’s sugar and it doesn’t love you back.
There is so much in this life that promises to make life better, but they come with “but’s”. Or they have very small fine print that will cost you more than you are willing to pay. ” Honey, how much do you think my arm and a leg is worth?” I think everyone loves those commercials that make it seem like their drug is going to bring heaven to earth, but then they have to quickly read all of the potential side effects. ” Did he just say it could even lead to death? Hmm that sounds worth it.”
Delight yourself in the Lord , and he will give you the desires of your heart.
PSA 37:4 ESV
The Lord is the one thing we can truly delight in with only positive side effects. If we were listing out the side effects it would be something like this….”May cause increased peace, joy, love, kindness, gentleness and faith. Uncontrollable joy maybe accompanied with occasional laughter. If your joy persists for more than 3 days please share with others. No need to consult your doctor because you just consulted the great physician. Healing and increase well-being may also occur.”
Worship at church this morning was amazing. I had this heaviness going into the work week and He just met me. I even had a vision during worship. Some people get words of knowledge or prophecies. The way I get it is through images. Here is my vision:
There was this cave that was completely dark except for this pool of liquid that was in the ceiling of the cave. The cave was dark and damp. Stalagtites and stalagmites throughout. In this pool in the ceiling was what looked like the night sky full of stars. This pool was dripping down into a much smaller pool on the floor. This smaller pool on the floor also had the night sky. And these two pools were connected. By jumping into one you would be connected with the other.
The stars and the light in the pool above is the heavenly kingdom and God’s infinite promises and wealth. The pool dripping on this earth is God pouring forth blessings on the earth. Its accessible to us.
What a blessing! What does it mean to delight yourself in the Lord? Take time to think on that this week. Worth it!
