I was having a virtual visit with my cardiologist. I heard him say the word “angina”. I thought, “That’s an old person’s disease.” My grandmother had that disease. Wait a minute, I am close to my grandmother’s age when she developed the same thing. Mercy! How did that happen?
I am going to try and reverse the curse by changing my diet to a plant-based diet. It certainly can’t hurt. I go back and forth, thinking it helps and then wondering if it really does? I want to eat as God would have me to eat, the way that glorifies Him, and is most beneficial to me as His servant. All foods are allowed but each one of us must determine what is most beneficial to us. According to God’s Word, all things are permissible but not all things are profitable.
I will not condemn those who eat or drink differently from me however, I do not want to be condemned either. We must all figure out what works for each of us. Obviously processed foods are not as good for us as whole foods. In my later years; I have been somewhat restricted in my eating because of some food allergies. I still have not eaten as healthy as I should have.
Jesus bore all of our sicknesses and diseases on the cross. Our bodies are His temple, so how are we caring for them? Do we eat right, get enough rest, and exercise? I believe He wants us to do all we do to glorify Him.
All throughout the Bible, we hear of Jesus healing people with different illnesses. I just happen to believe He still does, even from old people’s disease.
Prayer in Motion:
Lord in heaven, we cry out to You Jesus to help us take care of our bodies till death do us part. In Jesus Name. Amen.
