I always used to feel overwhelmed at the idea of taking on more than one challenge at a time. I guess something happened in my heart last weekend. It's like a switch has flipped. Peacefully, without having to flex my willpower until little beads of sweat pop out all over my forehead, I have begun eating healthfully, exercizing a bit, and keeping my home neat...every day. I have to chalk it up to it being purely the grace of God.
A healthy diet and cleaning help each other out. When I eat healthy meals and don't snack all day, I am in a better mood and my energy is excellent. I am only getting hungry enough to relish my next meal, not to get grumpy. In a good mood, it is easy to do my chores. With my dishes clean, it's convenient to make nice home-cooked meals anytime. I'm doing things with a bounce in my step! (I have been loosely following my penny-pinching version of the Maker's Diet.)
So here is a thank you to God, for gracing me with a beautiful week.
"Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit" saith the Lord.
I was motivated to share this post after reading Jennifer's process of learning about health, eating, and spirituality. An interesting and unique read!
