What is more, I consider everything a loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them garbage, that I may gain Christ
I hope you all had a really wonderful day.
Mine has been busy.
And one of the coolest revelations of the day: God is putting on my heart a Spirit of clarity, the need for it as He draws me nearer, which is in turn literally resulting in by His goodness my better eating.
Praise Him, praise His vast power!
When I woke this morning, I spent a long while in the Word. I breathed and prayed when thoughts went to ah you need to do this and finish up that assignment and figure out lunch and blah blah blah, no, actually, all I “need” to do, ever, is worship and listen to Jesus. By His mighty hand this can come in each and every context, but this morning it certainly didn’t involve that mass intercession of thoughts.
Anyway, breakfast. Right. After prayer I ate a big bowl of baked oats with apple and cacao peanut butter.
The girls and I headed off to Bible class, where we learned more about Paul. I have learned so much in this class, I can’t stress it enough! After Bible, I had a small window of time to eat lunch before my shift, and had a free food item at Starbucks (eating at Starbucks before working at another Starbucks… typical), and so I got a plain oatmeal and topped it with peanut butter, apple, and had a hard boiled egg on the side.
Today’s shift was randomly busy for a Wednesday, and I was on bar for most of it, and man it was so much fun! I got to make so many flat whites and cappuccinos which I now pride myself on making quite well. I adore what I do and feel called to this place. On my break I had a soy cappuccino.
After work, which also involved so many laughs with my amazing co-workers, I headed straight home, where I knew I’d have to miss dance tonight based on the amount of essay writing I still had to do. I ate dinner before getting cracking: I had chicken breast with carrots dipped in pb2, and also a bowl of goat’s Milk yogurt. Oh my random combinations… but so yum. I was sufficiently filled and ready to write my essay on Paul from the Bible, which I prayerfully wrote and really got a lot out of.
In my relationships, He’s weaving; I feel clarity in my brain as I’m eating more and not even thinking about it; I feel tinge of both pain and awe as I so tenderly feel the Lord’s intercession and grace. No limits to our God. How hilarious that humans try to mould Him for our purposes or speak on Him as an idea rather than a person or put a limit to what and how He works.
God, draw us into you. MORE, ever more.
