Dragging Through the Day, The Sugar I Had Eaten Made Me Weak…

Now we exhort you, brethren, warn them that are unruly, comfort the feebleminded, support the weak, be patient toward all men. 1 Thessalonians 5: 14

In the last blog post, I told you about a big family meal where I had eaten sugary sweet potatoes. I never think of it as a sweet, because it’s not a dessert, but it sure tastes like one. After being impatient with others the day before, I turned that over into God’s very capable hands and stopped eating the sweet potatoes that are still sitting in my fridge. I really should throw them out, because I’m the one who is tempted by them.

Anyway, this afternoon, I got so weak that I could barely keep my eyes open and didn’t know how I was going to make it through until the evening. I was trying to determine if I was sick, but realized that what I was feeling was the old sugar drain on my system. You wouldn’t think that the sugary sweet potatoes could do that, but they sure did.

God had me realize what I had done to my body by eating extra-large servings of the sweet potatoes for three days. I started to realize that this is how I used to feel when I let sugar and treats rule my life. Now, I let the Lord heal my life, and my body, my stress, my food, and my eating and I don’t have to deal with dragging through the day. He is my strength even when I am weak. Now we exhort you, brethren, warn them that are unruly, comfort the feebleminded, support the weak, be patient toward all men. 1 Thessalonians 5: 14

Since this is an example of the positive influence God has made on my overeating, this may not reflect the whole meaning of the Bible verse.
