Daniel 1:12-14 New International Version (NIV)
12 “Please test your servants for ten days: Give us nothing but vegetables to eat and water to drink. 13 Then compare our appearance with that of the young men who eat the royal food, and treat your servants in accordance with what you see.” 14 So he agreed to this and tested them for ten days.New International Version (NIV)
To Be Honest
I love pumpkin pie ! I love candy ! I love burgers ! I really do! I even like to drink power aide, but lately I have been dealing with this issue of McDonald’s.
While I was eating I felt the after effect of the McDonalds and a few days later I believe that the Holy Spirit was convicting me that I can not continue to eat like this.
The Bible says ,
Romans 12:1 New International Version (NIV)
A Living Sacrifice
12 Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship.New International Version (NIV)
When we eat bad things it affects us and can even hinder our worship to God ! You get lazy and sluggish. To Lazy to run around the church because of obesity. God does not want you walking around here with diabetes, but if you continue to eat fast food its going to happen !
I know that God has told me I need to get my eating right and stop eating so much chips ! But I also know that The Bible says Little by Little, so I have decided more water intake less candy. More water no Doritos. More Water less sprite. Raisins over cheap candy.
Now do not get me wrong, you can enjoy food ! But its not good to be a glutton ! You lose blessings over meals ! Look at Jacob and Esau… So Today put a knife to your throat.
Proverbs 23:1-2 New International Version (NIV)
23 When you sit to dine with a ruler,
note well what[a] is before you,
2 and put a knife to your throat
if you are given to gluttony.
If you struggle with emotional eating, pray about it ! Because God will see you through it !

Well, I don’t know about you but if I drink to much pop my skin breaks out. Or if I eat to much salt my legs swell, so ya girl don’t be feeling to cute around those times. But once I get back right of eating healthy my skin clears up and my legs go back down to normal.
I remember those days where I used eat like four Doritos Locos Tacos from Taco Bell, but now I see I sick I used to feel eating that food.
When I eat healthy and eat lemons, raisins, and drink water I feel so much better! Its like a heavenly natural remedy!
