Another lesson learned, Romans 14:17
Sunday, July 28, 2013
Last week I spent four mornings helping teach crafts at my church's Vacation Bible School. I had a light breakfast before I went out each day because I always start out that way. But when I got there, the teacher I was working with went and got me half an everything bagel with cream cheese, coffee, and a cup of fruit. That was so nice of her, as I couldn't maneuver my wheelchair to the house with the food set up, and besides, I just LOVE
bagels. Even though I wanted to,I just couldn't say "No!" As a result, my food plan was off on the wrong foot each day, and I just couldn't seem to get it right after that. I didn't go crazy, just got careless and stopped counting. So another valuable lesson learned: I'm a creature of habit and when my train gets off track there's sometimes just no getting it back again, which is why I have found that the stricter I am, the better off I am. Then, yesterday was a luncheon at my handicapped group, and that involved 5 foot heroes, served in individual slices, of course!
So today the Good Lord got me back on track with the timely reminder of Romans 14:17, "For the Kingdom of God is not food and drink, but righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy /Spirit. Somehow when God speaks I tend to listen!! I didn't feel well when I was overeating last week, and i prayed for divine healing. I think my answer is clear. Don't know if its scripture or not, but it's certainly true that God helps those that help themselves. Today I'm totally back on track, and hopefully not too much damage was done.
