Rice-onomics

Or is it rice-ology? Nah. I like rice-inimical better. Rice-onomics or the study of carbs. Wha? It’s a thing.

Okay. Maybe not. But it sounds cool right?

Okay bear with me. I just got diagnosed with an eating disorder and I’m working through it. Especially how it applies to my life as a Christian. There’s a thought for ya. Did ya know everything we go through may be applied in view of Christ.

Or at least it should be ya know?

Anyways, its been a minute since I talked about it. I was eating carbs and learning this idea that just didnt sit right to me: Everything is okay in moderation.

that took me back…..wait….not everything.

But I tried to apply what I was learning and then? I started getting sick….I started feeling excruciating pain constantly again. I was gaining weight even faster.

I was literally a bump on the log. And then? It hit me.

I dont live the rest of my life like that – see 1 Corinthians 10:23.

In my christian life I dont agree with that at all! As a person who deals with addictions? I do not agree with that at all.

So i stopped with my dietician/therapist….I am working on me with Jesus. and my husband – im always honest with him. And ya know what?

I feel better – not 100% (still dealing with my hypothyroidism) but i feel better. The pain has lessened immensely and well my weight has not increased.

God didnt mean for us to accept everything. It is not helpful. I know of so many people who when they stopped the occasional drink – their health changed drastically. For the better and they aint even christian. Sorry that was just off the top of my head. God didnt mean for us as christians to accept everything. We need to stand out. Be the difference in the world.

We are meant to show God to a lost and dying world. How can we do that if we dont stand apart?

18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go [c]therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” [d]Amen.

matthew 28:18-20
