What a feeling of accomplishment to finish the time consumed task of sowing rows upon rows of seeds in the warm spring soil! An experience greater still begins as tiny green sprouts seem to miraculously arise in the wondrous weeks to follow. A short time later, we have the joyous privilege of viewing God’s handiwork in the harvesting of colorful vegetables, juicy fruits, and fragrant herbs. How much more amazing it is to realize that this glorious living produce has the nutrients and healing properties to bring us vibrant health and fruitfulness in our very own lives.
Thankfully, more people are realizing that the perimeters of their food markets are the best aisles to shop for edibles closest to their originally designed forms. Processed foods – even those promoted as healthful – tend to be acidic and damaging to our more alkaline preferring bodies. A selective natural dietary plan is God’s intended design that is so essential to optimal functioning of our physical and mental well being.
Many people are unaware of how much their eating habits impact how they think and feel. A week-long trial of junk food elimination can go a long way toward convincing us otherwise. Sometimes it takes a frightening diagnosis to compel a person into pursuing a healthier lifestyle. Amazingly, when given the proper nutrition, our bodies have an incredible capacity to thoroughly heal. Many allopathic physicians are now accepting this formerly scoffed upon method of medical treatment. We must forgive their earlier ignorance and press on toward presenting the clear evidence of recovered ‘terminal’ or otherwise deemed irreversible health conditions.
Perhaps most significantly, when we realize how wonderfully made we truly are, it enables us to express more appreciation for the One to whom it is solely due – the LORD God Almighty! Once we acknowledge His magnificence as the Creator, we are then propelled to more fully love and serve others. Even if people are extremely hostile to us, or stubbornly resistant to our efforts to bless them, God can provide us with the capability to forgive and to heal those heartlessly inflicted wounds. His supply of strength through any trial on earth is an everlastingly abundant garden of healing for our weary souls. May we purpose to grow daily in that grace which sustains us so sufficiently as we trust in His many provisions and perfect sovereignty.
To Grow on: “(God) will give you all the seed you need and make it grow so there will be a great harvest from your goodness.” – 2 Corinthians 9:10
