Every day we are faced with hundreds of decisions that will lead us to a vibrantly healthy, and peaceful life or a life of sickness, stress and disease. The choices we make are directed by the desires of our heart!
Being a Wellness Consultant, I’m expected to make wise decisions when it comes to health! However, just recently while walking down the ice cream isle of my local grocery store, my eye caught the vision of my most favorite ice cream in the whole world.
The little pint seemed as though it was calling my name. First mistake was stopping to listen to the call, second mistake was giving into my own excuses of why “a little bit won’t hurt!” The third mistake was listening to my husband telling me, “You deserve it!”
I could hear the Holy Spirit inside of me saying, “Just read the label!” Of course I replied, “No!” This is because any time I’m tempted to buy a packaged processed product, I read the label. If the ingredients are a paragraph, I put it right back. This time my desire for a mouthful of sweetness was overriding my discernment and clear thinking.
So I bought the little beauty and placed it in my freezer, right in the front of the broccoli for easy access. You know, for those time when I just want a spoonful? As the week went on, each time I passed the freezer, Holy Spirit would say, “Read the label!” The very fact I heard this non-stop, kept me from eating it. After about a week I gave in and read the label. It was a soup of cancer causing ingredients such as, sugar, high fructose corn syrup, dyes etc.
I never gave in and ate any of the ice cream and thank goodness it has disappeared from the freezer. Maybe a gremlin ate it, I don’t know. I’ve just resolved to never buy it again. My heart is fixed on living the healthy, abundant, peaceful life Jesus died for me. I want to experience and fulfill my dream of seeing millions of people get healthy and free. It is worth the sacrifice to see people take back their hijacked life.
