Faith Real Life

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 I’m noticing I need some healthy snacks! I’m such a texture girl, I miss the crunch! Oh Piiiiiin—terest! 😉

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 heart’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, “A tranquil heart gives life to the flesh, but envy makes the bones rot.” 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, God’s deep, protective, Fatherly love for us, then we aren’t truly going to walk in health. And that can only be found in Jesus.

Pause. Baby awake, now in Daddy’s arms.

Ok. What was I saying?

Well, yes. That’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!



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 🙂
