"Today’s typical diet, although high in calories, is grossly lacking in the nutrients we require for good health. When we don’t get the nutrients we need we tend to overeat, in our body’s futile attempt to get what is lacking. Sometimes the effects of this malnutrition shows up in weight gain, or in difficulty in maintaining our ideal weight. Sometimes they don’t show up until later in life, when chronic diseases like heart disease, cancer, arthritis, and osteoporosis are most likely to occur. For most of us this shows up even now as a decreased ability to fight off disease and a general lack of energy and vitality." -DrW

Quietness of heart and peace of mind. Who isn't searching for those things nowadays? There's freedom in Christ. Some of you know that in my stroke, my voice was affected. I've been practicing my speech lately by making audio recordings. You'll find a link for my recording of this blog post at the end. πŸ’›πŸ’•πŸ’›

It's a well known fact that the more healthy stuff you eat the more you want it.
-
It's true in the opposite too. The more junk food you eat the more you'll want it.
-
I was thinking how it's true in areas other than food too.
-
Think about it.
-
Anger: the more you let yourself indulge in anger, even small angers, the more your emotions will want that and keep falling into it.
-
It's true in the opposite. The more you tell yourself "No" to reacting in anger, the more your emotions will step away from it.
-
Peace: the more you react peacefully and patiently to situations, the more that will become the pattern of your emotions.
-
Or Complaining: the more your first reaction is to complain, the more your mind will connect to that and keep doing it.
-
If you're a Christian, with Jesus living in your spirit, you can have help from the Lord beyond self-effort if you want it. But I think it's still true either way.
-
I'm sure this could apply to a million other things.

I'm not really big into resolutions. I figured out a long time ago that as soon as the "newness" wears off then my determination and motivation does a nose-dive and a fast crash & burn. -
Thankfully, resolving and self-effort isn't really God's way of doing things. Even Jesus said he could do nothing of Himself. -
The beauty of that is when I'm weak, then I'm strong. When I finally put away my resolvings and self-efforts then He can be the strength in me that I need to accomplish His will (which isn't always the same as my will and will-power). -
My hope for 2017 is that God can have a people who can hear Him more clearly, move in His Voice, and who want to live more and more in weakness so that He can be their strength. -
Happy New Year! πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠ
