Have you ever gone gluten free, sugar free, caffeine free and dairy free all at once? As for me and my house…one word – HUNGRY! If my body could have spoken it would have shouted: “Help…you’re kill’n me”! I’m not really sure that gluten, sugar, caffeine or dairy have a real nutritional value. In fact – let’s just admit…over time it destroys and breaks down our health and vitality. In time, it will exact a high toll! That’s really sad!
And so – it takes a tough disciplined approach to remove the things that taste sooo good and have defined “yum” for so long. So – I make a decision to removed these evil radical toxins…and to celebrate we head to Scoop’d.
Wait a minute…
Galatians 5:24 – “And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with it’s passions and desires.”
The flesh is needy and desires the things that with time become toxic to the spiritual life. The flesh feeds on the gluten of possessions, the sugar of gossip, the caffeine of ego and the dairy of comfort. Yet do not be deceived – in time it will exact a high toll on your soul!
Choose this day the spiritual discipline of the greater decision to crucify your desires and deny your impulses! You may feel really hungry for a time. But not too shortly you’ll feel the freedom of life the way it was designed to be. And the freedom will bring health like you’ve never known it before.
And pretty soon – your taste has changed and you’ll never go back there again.
So…to whom do you belong? Maybe it’s time for a diet?
