WHAT I ATE WEDNESDAY: Recognizing the Enemy… But That's All
And by lovers I mean lovers of the Lord… Who we GET to love… Who PROVIDES the love…
It’s too good!
Today, though, I have a bit of a weird food day to show you. Here’s the thing… It SEEMS like my eating is weird to many people, but it does feel really genuinely normal to me. It wasn’t a fantastic day as far as thoughts go, but as far as not LISTENING to the thoughts it’s been good.
I slept in until 9 and spent a good hour in the Word, 1 John today, much about how it is impossible to love God without loving people, all others. The two are one, essentially.
I made breakfast— a really big serving of oatmeal with looots of peanut butter, a banana, raw cacao, and a few dates. Perfect for my quick 4 hour work shift at Cora’s. When I finished my shift, which included lots of great and funny conversation with my co workers, I had the oatmeal from my work with berries.
I left work with my lovely friend Emma and we went to Waterloo with Sammy and Daniella to accompany Emma to get her new ear piercings. They went to get food, and while I felt like I wasn’t experiencing thoughts/falling back on “safe foods,” it did happen to be a rough day today where oatmeal was all I felt safe eating. I got a little cup of it from Starbucks and had an apple on the side. Us girls hung out for a while and it was perfect.
When I got home much later, I knew I needed some substantial food. I microwaved three little sweet potatoes and stuffed dates in them, and had a few big handfuls of baby carrots on the side.
The enemy has no hold on the way these habits were today and I pray that tomorrow and the days to come are more normalized and he has no dictation over my eating. It is recently especially that I have been recognizing and been aware that, yes, the devil is here, he works, he is existent, he vies for our hearts. But he has NO WEIGHT NO PLACE NO LIFE, and can’t, for the Lover of my soul is mine and I am His forever.
Spending the evening in prayer and the Word.
Blessings and prayers!✌️☀️
