Faith, Food, & Fitness: Living Life Fit. (Week of Jan 24)

Faith for Life Fit

I think sometimes (most often times) we desperately are looking for a quick, clear cut yes or no from God in a rushed “need it now” panic, but when things are good and we don’t have that same urgency, reconnecting can seem so hard… answers seem to come so delayed, not so definitively, and like God doesn’t WANT to tell us the solution to help us out 😂 right?!.

I look back at so many decisions I’ve made that very obviously I “must’ve missed God” on, 🤷🏻‍♀️ and while I’m tempted to drop into self criticism and judgment, I know He doesn’t condemn me for missing the mark, so why should I? Seriously, sister: We can rest in knowing He encourages us to pursue Him (knock and keep knocking, right?!), and be persistent about it. Though He seems to take forever (according to our time clock), He is always right on time. Though we may very well have missed His instruction and guidance in a big or small decision that we are now suffering the natural consequences from, He is still the Author and Finisher , our Healer and Provider, our Teacher and Friend. He is still our ever present Help.

If today you’re struggling with a big decision, and just can’t seem to hear clearly, I love the advice I received from a @joycemeyer teaching years ago to “follow peace”. Out of the options before me right now, which option, which path, gives me the most Peace? There is your decision. He’s a God of order and peace, and Jesus says He gives us His Peace. So, I follow His peace. Not the choice that makes people pleased with me, but the choice that brings me His Peace deep in my spirit.

And for the recovering perfectionists and people pleasers in the room with me wondering “but what if I still make the wrong choice or people get mad at me”… Rest in knowing He still won’t abandon us (even though we may mess m it up and get it wrong), He is still always present and leading us, providing light to our path and “always leads us in triumph” (2Cor 2:14) So even if we do get it wrong THIS time, He’s not pulling away from us. We can trust He’s still very much still caring for and leading us in REAL time. Keep listening for His direction!

Recipe For Fit Moms & Foodies

This savory, flavorful Nondairy Clam Chowder is hearty without being heavy, and so easy to make. Our recipe uses four vegetables—onions, celery, potatoes, and turnips— plus flour, chicken stock, and canned clams in broth. It gets even easier because you’ll do it all in one pot. Grab a big spoon and enjoy!
