Learning the good food lesson

I had gotten into a bad habit after I dislocated my shoulder in February. Prior to that I’d been eating very healthy foods. However, after the accident I guess I began needing extra comfort and turned to food. Consequently, some pounds came back on. Ugh!
 
Garbage in, garbage out.
 
So the saying goes.
 
The same is true for how we feed our minds. If we pour good words from the Bible into us daily, chances are what we say will be more positive and encouraging to others.
 
I hadn’t noticed before that passages in Psalm 19 about God’s Word precede the well-known quote below that pastors sometimes use at the close of a church service. Here are some of those reflections about the Bible:
 
“The law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul.”
 
“The testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple.”
 
“The precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart.”
 
THEN follows this:
 
“Let the words of MY mouth and the meditation of MY heart be acceptable in your sight, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer.”
 
Good food in, good food out.
 
May our words reflect the truth of God’s Word and his love for us.
 
P.S. Oh . . . and I am back on a better eating plan and shedding those extra pounds. Hope you’re Looking Up! too! Blessings!
