Welcome to the Journey

Food for Thought

A few weeks ago we promised a post on healthy eating because as the scripture states in 1 Corinthians 10:31 – “Whether, then, you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.” NASB

Here in the Cepher family, though some of us are just in our early fifties–they have been very difficult years, all before findingĀ  God–we have not been feeling well so we decided to change our eating habits. There was a two-fold purpose for these changes; one reason was to become more obedient to God and follow closer to the above scripture, the second reason, as I have said dealt with health. Things have been going so well with this endeavor that we would like to share our experience with all of you.

The number one item is H2O; drinking enough water is crucial.

We have found with our new eating regiment that we have more energy–and with MS all the energy one can increase is a real blessing–and that energy equates to a better attitude. It is only common sense that the better one feels, the better ones outlook will be. An improved outlook, memory, clearer thought process, and more patience, amounts to an all around better vessel for the Messiah’s use. And all we did was change our eating habits.

A reduction in processed foods and sugar is essential, along with a good supply of fruits and vegetables will help almost immediately. A good rule of thumb is; if you can’t pronounce it, don’t eat it. Of course, organics are preferred, as with range fed animals; however, the price can be prohibitive so you should just purchase what the Lord provides for and reconsider amounts. In the Lord’s time it was not unusual to eat just one large meal each day. Again, it is not about dieting, it is about obedience through a lifestyle change, and with God quality trumps quantity.

What is most important here at the Cepher family is a constant improvement in our relationship with God. We have found that the more one applies him or herself to that directive the more one realizes how much God loves His people, and that there is nothing God would not do for the benefit of His people. Surrendering to God is a significant part in the process of learning just how much God truly does love you. As I have already said, my energy level has improved greatly, as has my entire outlook; however, I must stress that I cannot attribute all of these changes to just a different diet. I give all credit to the Holy Spirit and God.

Salad, chicken, Ezekiel Bread, olive oil, fish, omega-3 eggs, brown rice, oatmeal, fruits and veggies, and smoothies, are the key ingredients; much like a typical Mediterranean diet, with plenty of H2O. My smoothies are basic: frozen fruit, honey, rice milk, olive oil, banana, and whey protein powder. Just remember that everyone is different–thank God not everyone is plagued with MS–and what may work for me may not work for you. Check with the Blessed Holy Spirit before doing anything!
