When my stomach gargles, feels empty, I don't hesitate, well usually I don't hesitate, to go find something to eat. Protein, the source of energy for my body to continue to function and give out physcially. Veggies, the source of vitamins and minnerals, giving my body important fighting power to nasty bugs in my gut and system. Fruit giving my body sugars and more m inerals and vitamins to do some more fighting. Fermentation, aiding in my digestion and gut.
There is another source of food, it's one I forget more often than anything else. The one that is the most important, more important than food I chew with my teeth. This food is the word of God, breath of life, the word that God gave to man to us. The scripture that encourages me, whacks me, gives me energy and hope. The words that remind me who I am and what my future holds. The words that remind me and teach me to love others, the words who encourage me and ask me to respect my husband and to be consistant in my discipline of my children. The word that tells me my training of my children WILL pay off!
If I am crabby, self absorbed, struggling for energy, struggling to get out of bed, if I am looking to others for what I should be looking for in my relationship with God. You can be assured I have not been in the word. I have not been holding my relationship with Jesus first and foremost! The word of God is food for literal thought! When I am not in the word I am starving my soul and spirit. I am quenching the spirit.
