A Diet of Faith
A Diet of Faith
"What we become is what we eat", my mother used to say...I am reminded in these few words that what I have become essentially boils down to that of which I have partaken in this life…I am reminded that negative things have certainly impacted who I am and the spiritual health I have come to know; just as, the positive things have come to impact my thoughts and ways…Truly, it is that we are held accountable by our loving heavenly Father to watch what we take into our bodies, spirits, and minds; for in the intake, we become who we are…How awesome it is to me how what our mothers shared with us in our youthful days actually takes full-form in our maturity…This too is a reminder to me that I would like to share with young people that it is best to listen to wisdom if we desire to be healthy in our minds, bodies, and spirits and to monitor closely what we take in…
I ponder the question myself, “Would I become what I would eat”, as my mother would say…I am sure that if I had listened more closely that I would be healthier in life than I am today…However, I realize that in my maturing that I too have missed the mark at times as we all do...But, I am equally aware that it sometimes is through my mistakes and rebellion that I have learned the most difficult lessons…My heart tells me though that I would desire for those younger than me to learn from my mistakes and to take heed from a mother’s words; for they are filled with love, wisdom, mercy, and hope…
It is through a diet of faith that we become the best that we can be...It is through being fed the words and precepts of God we become fulfilled...
“What is shared in wise words today and heard by eager ears and willing hearts may become the health of tomorrow”…©

How true this is! At school they always told us, 'garbage in, garbage out'. This is a powerful truth--I need to re-examine my diet. :)
