A peaceful heart…

August 11, 2016

I scurry to write as supper is simmering on the stove, Elizabeth naps, and Troy is in the shop creating. Ready. Set. Write something.

Day 2 of eating dairy/sugar/wheat free and Iโ€™m noticing I need some healthy snacks! Iโ€™m such a texture girl, I miss the crunch! Oh Piiiiiinโ€”terest! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Even though I am journeying (and have been for many many years) to figure out a clean skin cure for me, I also realize that lifestyle has so much to do with it. I am almost finished reading Heart Made Whole by Christ Black Gifford and it has really made me give thought to my heartโ€™s state more often. Am I walking in the peace of Christ right now, in this moment? I try to ask myself that more often. I read in Proverbs 14:30 this morning, โ€œA tranquil heart gives life to the flesh, but envy makes the bones rot.โ€ Tranquil also means peaceful or calm.

Hear hear.

We can do all we want to eat healthy, exercise, and live a balanced life, but if our heart is a mess of unhealed pain, unforgiveness, or has never experienced, truly, Godโ€™s deep, protective, Fatherly love for us, then we arenโ€™t truly going to walk in health. And that can only be found in Jesus.

Pause. Baby awake, now in Daddyโ€™s arms.

Ok. What was I saying?

Well, yes. Thatโ€™s my thought for today, Day #2 of #foodforskinmamma. I must walk in the peace that God has already promised me if I ever want to walk in full-body health!

Onwardโ€ฆ

 

P.S… last night I made a chickpea coconut curry (SO good!) and Troy said, “So this doesn’t have meat does it?” So tonight, we eat meat ๐Ÿ™‚
