Tight on Money, Good for the Calorie Intake!

Monday, November 05, 2012

My wife and I are going through some hard financial times. We'll be fine, the Lord is on our side and He'll provide for all of our needs, but for the moment the provision has been just what we need. The number one area where we can save money is food so we've been stretching our food as far as possible, which has actually been pretty fun. And as a fringe benefit, this has allowed my calorie intake to go down by 200-300 per day which is good for me right now. I haven't been able to exercise as much as I'd like because work has been so busy, so the reduction is a welcome one.

The main point? The Lord works all things together for the good of those who love him and are called according to his purpose (Romans 8:28), and He is certainly working this temporary difficulty for my good!

Hope you all have a great day!

    I can relate. I had a little less than $9.00 to cover a weeks worth of groceries to feed a family of 3. I trust He will take make sure we end up fine, but you are correct...getting creative can sometimes mean less calories....which isn't always a bad thing. :)
