Do you want to know one of its secret?
God teaches about love…to faith… to character…even up to health and diet.
In my early journal days, I browsed the old testament reading from the Chapter of Genesis until I reached the book of Numbers before I was asked to start reading the new testament alternately.
From the old testament I read, the message clearly revealed to refrain from eating pork and eat only the sea foods that has fins and scales (Fish), vegetables and birds (chicken).
Verse 27 The fear of the Lord adds length to life, is very true to me. In obedience to the Lord, I followed the diet revealed to me which made me avoid or lowered my cholesterol.
It was a tough fight since I love lechon kawali, sinigang na baboy, menudo, lechon paksiw and pork barbeque.
Seeing those dishes in net and for real makes me drool but I fear God so I have to be obedient … I cut pork from my diet totally for more than a year…praise God, I feel better since then.
I was thinking, if I had not listened to God’s message to me through my journal and continued to be undisciplined with my eating habits especially that the word “diet” is not in my vocabulary… Verse 27 the years of the wicked are cut short… I hate to think I can no longer be with you at this moment…no, no, no… I am sure glad I am still here today and all praises to my Lord Jesus and our father in Heaven!
(Reading the new testament, Lord Jesus mentioned that we are allowed to eat everything and all that we eat would be released too… I was allowed to eat PORK! But since I got used to not eating the meat...I still try to avoid it as much as I can.) (So, it is not bawal…tikim-tikim na lang! he,he,he :D)
Let us pray…
Our Father God in heaven, I always prayed for longer life…I am thankful to know the secret to attain my wish. Thank you for your guidance. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
