Don’t Bite Off More Than You Can Chew

Have you ever gone out to eat or maybe at home that you were so hungry or maybe in a rush that you just started consuming your food to the point that you could hardly chew your food or you almost choked yourself to death because you had a mouth full of food. Sometimes this will cause us not to even chew our food properly and just inhale it which isn’t good for our digestive system and could cause problems in the long run. How many times in life have we taken in more than we can chew? Was it to prove that we could or to please some one else? Even if we are capable of doing it doesn’t necessarily mean that we are supposed to be. Sometimes we can get so caught up in the “work” that we become so far removed from what God has called us to do. When was the last time we consulted God about what we are supposed to be doing. There were many times I would find myself right in the middle of a task(s) and realized it was too much, why am I doing this or should I really be. After a period of time I felt overwhelmed, frustrated or burnt out to the point that when it came time for me to do the thing(s) that I was called to do I had no strength. If you take on more than you are able to handle something is bound to be overlooked, missed or neglected. Perfect that one thing with diligence and with excellence until you are able to manage more. Finish and complete the task at hand.

What Your Feeding On Could Eventually Feed On You

Almost 3 1/2 yrs ago I found out I was Gluten intolerant so I had to go Gluten Free. What is that actually, what does that intel, what does that mean for me? I have never heard of such a thing. I felt it was the worst timing ever to try to change and adapt yet to another thing.
After doing my research I found out that if I didn’t get it under control that it could eventually turn into Celiacs Disease which could lead into cancer. I also found out a lot of the symptoms that I had been dealing with for well over 7 yrs may have been a result of that. At that time Gluten intolerance was uncommon and not very common when I found out about it. I am a person who doesn’t like to take a lot of medicine, so the best thing I could do was change my diet. No more wheat, whey or barley which was in just about everything. The 1st year was sooo hard for me. It was almost like going through rehab and going through the periods of withdrawals. I couldn’t do fried foods, most sweets or pastas. I lost a lot of weight which I didn’t need to lose. I had to look at all ingredients when I shopped and when going out to eat I had to ask. The things that I started to notice were having very little to no headaches, abdominal pain, constipation, depression, fatigue, etc. My thinking was clear, I felt my energy coming back, I was feeling better than I had felt in years, I was getting my life back. After being on it for a while I could tell if I ate something I wasn’t suppose to because those symptoms would come back. Sometimes it would affect me right away or it would be several days after consumption. I think about how we eat off of or consume the things that aren’t good for us. Unhealthy and ungodly life styles, relationships, the things we allow others to dump on us, what we even speak out of our own mouths. We know what it will or what it would eventually cause down the line, but yet we still do it. The things that produce outwardly in our lives are the things that already existed and was growing on the inside. Whatever you feed the most is what will grow. If you don’t want to see it manifested in the future then watch what we intake today. Be careful the things you inhale good or bad will come back out eventually and will double sometimes triple it’s size of consumption.#CLEANTHISHOUSE
