Day 232: Granola Girl

20120829-105520.jpg

Granola. So healthy. So good for you. So yummy.

Sooooooo yummy.

Cause when you haven’t had sugar for 232 days and you taste the sweetness of granola… ooooooooo, it’s just extra yummy.

Have I mentioned yet that it’s yummy?

Well. It is. Yummy.

And that is why I had to limit myself to eating it once a week. It’s not really a covenant thing, but the longer I’m on the covenant the more I realize that I don’t have to covenant everything. I am learning that I have will power through Him all the time. Covenant or no covenant. I think being on the covenant this long as shown me, proven to me, reminded me that with God all things are possible. Even me having willpower. Yes, even that. Which feels like just as much of a miracle as God parting the Red Sea!

Okay but I slid off topic there for a sec. What I was going to say is again a reminder that it isn’t about which food I am eating so much as it is about my approach toward food. Am I being gluttonous? lustful? self-focused? If I am eating granola (mind you… “healthy” granola) with any of those mind sets then it’s gonna backfire. And thinking that some foods can be eaten whenever, with whatever mindset, simply because some nutritionist has deemed them “healthy”… well, it’s just not good.

I can’t remember if I have shared this scripture before or not and since I’m blogging outside on my phone while my toddler plays then I can’t look up to see if I have, but oh well either way! I’m sure it isn’t the first time for me to repeat myself! Ha!

    So do not be attracted by strange, new ideas. Your strength comes from God’s grace, not from rules about food, which don’t help those who follow them. Hebrews 13:9
