Messages for me?
Friday, February 07, 2014
Today in my Bible reading an angel woke up the sleeping prophet Elijah and gave him some food. Elijah then slept again and once more the angel woke him and told him to eat. "The journey ahead will be too much for you." The phrase struck me.
Then hours later I was looking at a knitting pattern online and those words "The journey ahead will be too much for you" were HUGE and spread from one side of my screen to the other...Just those words.
So I decided to go back and look at that passage again because it seems obvious that God is trying to tell me something. And when I opened my Spark site to write a blog, the words "You are Enough" were blazoned across my screen." But I felt once more that they were meant for me.
I've been considering what method of eating I will pursue ....and have been considering this one:
I will eat what I want as long as I am truly hungry. And I will accept my body for what it is....The most important thing is that I am healthy....so this will not be a junk food diet. I've had enough self hatred. The fact is that I am sick and my face LOOKS sick. The good news is that I have not had even a cold for two years...Well last year I had endocarditis (an infection of a heart valve) but nothing in the way of colds, viruses, or flu.
What do I derive from those two "messages" today? I think there may be a challenge coming for me and I need to rest and eat well to face this challenge. and the words "You are enough"? It could mean victory over the challenge. It could mean that I may lose everything but myself and that plus God ---is enough.
