WHAT I ATE WEDNESDAY: Food is Just Food
And I’m truly, through Christ alone, finally living that out.
Today was not about food in the least.
Happy Wednesday and prayers that you had a solid day seeking Christ and living out His work in you.
I am really proud of how NOT disordered my eating has been today. There was certainly room for the enemy to work, but in prayer I wasn’t even remotely focused on food today but on my portion and strength Jesus Christ, and I want to showcase what that translates to as far as food.
Breakfast. Knowing that there wasn’t much in the way of food for me to take to campus for my long day, and that I’m always reluctant to spend money on food, I made sure to eat a good breakfast this morning. I woke up, spent time in the Word and in prayer, and then made my favourite baked oats with blueberries and peanuts, because we’re out of peanut butter! It was delicious. I ate it whilst doing some readings for my online class and writing some lesson plans for the dance classes I teach.
Lunch? A Few Little Snacks? I left the house at 11:30, but not before eating a handful of baby carrots and a clementine. I had Linguistics from 1-2:30, and then met up with Laura for some really good talks, and I bought a banana on campus to eat. I met up with Johnny then and we had some really important conversations, and I don’t know if he’ll read this and I tell him anyway but that boy still gives me butterflies, the best kind, and I have this faith that he always will. With his permission I’d definitely like to share more about our relationship with you guys, because the sole beauty in it is Christ and I cannot imagine anything else. I’m excited for us to grow together in pursuit of Him. Afterward I met Maddie for a quick half hour ab and cardio workout at the gym, and then we headed back to her place to change. We had some really incredible conversations about the work Gods been doing in both of our lives, and the lives of those around us. We didn’t have much time before our 7pm Christianity class, but at her place I ate an apple and a handful of pistachios.
Dinner? Class was great, my prof Allen is really incredible. I’ve had a lot of things recently on my heart about my program and whether its multi faith principle is something I can stand for as far as getting my degree from there, but that topic could take a whole post for itself. It was great to see a lot of my wonderful friends from the seminary. I bussed home and realized when I got to the kitchen how hungry I was! I could have had a more “normal” dinner, but I ate what I truly wanted and didn’t think twice, which ended up being carrots, banana, and apple slices with TONS of peanut butter and dates. Food is a blessing and we eat it so our bodies can thrive to carry out God’s will. The more I live in His Truth, the less the enemy is able to manifest itself as an eating disorder in me at all.
