10:40 PM It’s the eve before my sugar-FREE journey is set to begin. Yikes, right? Uh…that would be a big, fat yep. Seriously though, I am good. But ( and as I have said before, that’s a pretty huge but), I must confess. Today was something and a half plus two slices of buttered toast.
In keeping all things open and clear, I have to tell you that earlier today, my sugar gimmies were having a party. It was kind of like a last hurrah. It’s funny now, but it was not so much then. Everything I could get my hands on, I ate. No, I’m kidding. I did try, however, to get one last sweet in though. That yummy goodness (make that badness) serenaded me and wore me down. Was it worth it? At the time, I would have cheerily hollered, YES! Now I know better, so my answer is, of course, NO. I’m itching to prove it, experiencing that low thrum of inflammation I told you about. Ha! That’s what I get. Still, it was a lesson and a reminder that I needed on so many levels.
Which brings me to two points. First, the whys and whats of my sugar-FREE journey. You can read about it here, as well as consider taking part in The Phone Tree Giveaway. While I do have a deeply personal spiritual objective regarding this journey that is between me and God, I can tell you that the physical, internal change to come is very important to me. Those of you who have health concerns surely know where I am coming from. Second, all of this brings me to my spiritual life fitness lessons for today.
Spiritual Life Fitness Lessons re: Sugar-FREE:
1) All things are not for my good.
2) Abstaining from those things that are bad actually helps to make me stronger in the physical as well as in the spiritual.
3) Healing, much like renewal, comes down to a choice.
10:50 PM Well, I am off to quiet myself a bit. I will pray and reflect. And yes, of course, I will meditate on God’s word. Can’t do without it!
If you have decided on taking part in a journey of your own, I send you waves of Christ-love, sincere wishes for grace travel and oodles of good cheer. My prayers are certainly with you.
