Daniel 1:12-17"Please test your servants for ten days: Give us nothing but vegetables to eat and water to drink. 13) Then compare our appearance with that of the young men who eat the royal food, and treat your servants in accordance with what you see." 14 ) So he agreed to this and tested them for ten days. 15) At the end of the ten days they looked healthier and better nourished than any of the young men who ate the royal food. 16) So the guard took away their choice food and the wine they were to drink and gave them vegetables instead. 17) To these four young men God gave knowledge and understanding of all kinds of literature and learning. And Daniel could understand visions and dreams of all kinds.
Have you heard that saying..."out with the bad in with the good"? Well i was thinking of it and found it was better to take in good and put out good!!!!
What i put in my heart and mind will come out as attitude and personality, moods. So i try to keep Jesus on my heart and mind. There really is nothing like that peace that comes from reminding yourself that your loved by the Almighty in all your imperfection! makes me feel pretty awesome!
What I put in my body will affect how and what I can put out...effort, strength, energy, mood. I have recently been learning first hand that it is important to watch what we fuel our body with, you would not put gas in your beloved car from a rusty old gas can with water in it and dirt! Your car would not run well to say the least, you would end up at the mechanic pulling out your check book, soooooo why is it so easy for us to fuel our bodies and minds with junk food, junk TV, junk conversation, junk attitude???? Then turn around and pull out the check book for the Dr., the pharmacist, the therapist?
So I challenge you to try it...."IN WITH THE GOOD, OUT WITH THE GOOD" put it in you so you can in turn put it out...good for you, good for your family and the BEST FOR GOD!
