My weekend & the one about diet.



Over the weekend, I went to Flint to visit my friend. Basically I took some photos.
We watched movies & ate some junk food.
Lately I have been trying harder (then normal) to eat healthier,
I was feeling a bit guilty for chowing down on some junk food.
The chips (whole-grain) & cheese. Oreos & peanut butter. Sparkling grape juice. pretzel M&Ms.
Not too bad, but I could feel the breakouts coming. ewwww
Then I realized later.... I wasn't pigging out & nothing was wrong. Eating those things does not happen often and for this weekend away it was ok to have a bit of junk food.
So there... I still feel a tad guilty but I will get over it and do what I normally do and eat healthy.

On that note I have made a decision in the last week that I am no longer eating fried food (except for the occasional sushi that is fried). It's not a commen thing for me to eat a lot of fried food but I decided that if I decide not to I won't do it when the opportunity comes.
My "diet" is not yet figured out. I don't consume a lot of meat, I don't think I have even had meet since last Thursday; but I am not a vegetarian {I like sausage/bacon & chicken too much to do that}
Also veggies are hard to get into my diet but I am trying more and more; like adding spinach to my smoothies and cooking broccoli with pasta. Fruit...eat it everyday. Dairy....yup everyday.
I'm still figuring this food thing out... it'll happen.

While visiting my friend I also went to her church, I adore that church.
It's small but relevant.
Each time I have attended I am left challenged and convicted.
This church doesn't have a music ministry,
just straight up preaching and communion.
LOVE. IT!
On Sunday the sermon was about 1 Corinthians 10:23-11:1

(ESV) Do All to the Glory of God

23  “All things are lawful,” but not all things are helpful. “All things are lawful,” but not all things build up. 24  Let no one seek his own good, but the good of his neighbor. 25  Eat whatever is sold in the meat market without raising any question on the ground of conscience. 26 For “the earth is the Lord's, and the fullness thereof.” 27 If one of the unbelievers invites you to dinner and you are disposed to go, eat whatever is set before you without raising any question on the ground of conscience. 28 But if someone says to you, “This has been offered in sacrifice,” then do not eat it, for the sake of the one who informed you, and for the sake of conscience— 29 I do not mean your conscience, but his. For why should my liberty be determined by someone else's conscience? 30 If I partake with thankfulness, why am I denounced because of that for which I give thanks?
31 So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. 32  Give no offense to Jews or to Greeks or to the church of God, 33 just as I try to please everyone in everything I do, not seeking my own advantage, but that of many, that they may be saved.
11  Be imitators of me, as I am of Christ.

So many things struck me in this sermon. I had my Greek New Testament as well as my ESV Bible. Here are some of my notes: V.23-There are certain things that some consider wrong, but really they aren't necessarily wrong, they are just not useful (i.e. going to entertain guests, your child dumps out legos all over to play, not wrong, but it's not useful at the moment for what is going to happen).




Some things to think about.

Jesus, help me to be useful in the things I do.
May the words of my mouth & the meditation of my heart be pleasing in Your sight.
My my hearts desire be to be satisfied in You and to please You!
May I walk wise and be wise.
God I need Your help,
I need wisdom every day.
May I humbly come to You each day and ask for Your favor,
for strength, for me to die to myself.
Give me a greater heart for You Jesus!

  1. Hehe. I think we have very similar eating habits. I feel bad sometimes after eating a lot of junk food, but you're right...if it's not too much than it's ok. However, we do need to take care of our bodies. Anway, I'm glad you had a good time with your friend! ;)

    PS: I LOVE your playlist!
