I don't say this to boast, but rather to encourage you.
That is why a lot of you come here to this site--you are seeking peace in your life by doing all you can to be healthy.
Some of you come here to learn a bit about health, but need peace in other areas. Perhaps it's finances, marriage, child rearing, government, economy, or even spiritual questions about life after death, destiny, etc. Whatever it is, you are unsettled, seeking something that will give you a sense of peace.
While some others of you come here for some good recipes. You don't really care much about changing your eating, and that's okay, too. I would much rather see you put emphasis on your spiritual well-being and then your mental well-being before you tackle the physical, anyway. I named this site All Things Health (as I have said before) to be a constant reminder to keep your "health" priorities in order and to address all things that apply to your health, whether spiritual, mental, or physical.
Whatever the reason you come here, I want to communicate to you that you can have real peace in your life. But I can only pass on so much, you must go through the experiences yourself. I like this quote-
The words printed here are concepts. You must go through the experiences. -Carl Frederick
You CAN experience the abundant life that Jesus promised in John 10:10. I am not talking about finding religion. And this is much more than just a belief in God. I am talking about a relationship with Jesus Christ. This is not about fitting God into a little box, a little portion of your life--Sunday mornings, for example. This is about seeking wholeheartedly to find out what the gospel is about, what God's character is all about, what His Word has to say about all areas of life, and submitting to serve Him and follow after His will. Seek first His kingdom and everything else falls into place (Matthew 6:33). This is bigger than nutrition.
Who would have thought that I could find answers to my nutrition questions in the Bible? I spent a good deal of my time reading different books about nutrition, but the pieces of the puzzle didn't come together for me until I went to God's Word. I didn't have all the pieces when I started this blog a year and a half ago, but in the last couple months I feel like the last pieces of the puzzle have come together (and I will be writing about that soon, to fill you all in). I'm sure there will be more insight to gain, but this place of peace is wonderful! The peace of God is truly a peace that surpasses understanding! (Philippian 4:7)
I have no more desire to study nutrition (this isn't to say it's no longer a passion, it is and, of course, I am still learning in many other areas). That's how much peace I have. I no longer have that pulling inside me to "find" the answers. I have studied for approximately the last 5 years. All that knowledge doesn't do me a bit of good without the wisdom to know how to use it and God's wisdom is the best wisdom of all. God wants to give us all wisdom, we just need only to ask (James 1:5). The Bible will offer you all the answers you are looking for. ONLY God and His Word can bring you true, lasting peace--in ALL areas of your life!
And so I pray today, that you will find the peace of God in your life. I encourage you to read John 10:1-10, especially focusing on verse 9. If you need specific prayer, I would love to hear from you and pray with you. If you want to know HOW to start a relationship with Jesus Christ, please let me know.
