I have the happy privilege of living with a passionate chef, who is all too eager to love me through his food. I've been most blessed by his bountiful and carefully curated offerings. You can tell by looking at me-I am dearly loved. But, as the Holy Spirit was bringing me under conviction about my role in this work of manifesting His healing, it became clear that my hands off approach to eating had to end.
God's care is evident in His attention. All He cares about He sees and knows. In a way, even if not tangibly touched by Him, all that He loves He touches. He is not a hands off God. No! He is willingly a partaker of even the most minute details of our existence.
Beloved, God's calling us to care like He does. He's calling us to pay attention. He's calling us to put our hands in the soil and fashion, with Him, the life He has always had in mind for us. This week's tip is to put your hands on what you eat.
How to Put Your Hands on What You Eat
1. Start cooking at home.
2. Plan all your meals using the 5 Ws:
#1 What are you cooking?
#2 How are you preparing it?
Based on your dietary goals, which you should set in consultation with a health coach or related health professional, identify the best means of preparing your meal. Will you boil, steam, grill, saute or bake your meal, etc? This is especially important, because you are cooking to thrive. You may have to modify a favorite recipe in order to make the best choice.
#3 When are you preparing it?
#4 How are you carrying it?
#5 When are you eating it?
Happy temple building!
Take care. Bless many.
