It’s hard sometimes to realize how quickly a week can run by you. Lent is one of those times of the year for me. I’m trying to watch what I eat, work out, write down my food intake, and generally eat healthier stuff with our “Launch Into Health” program. Yet, the busy-ness of life can get really distracting. That is why tonight I am going to spend some time meditating and praying. I need some time to center and put the busy on the back burner. I’m hungering and thirsting for something that will fulfill a different kind of need.
I came across this passage which reminded me of what is good and health giving:
“Come, everyone who thirsts, come to the waters; and he who has no money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without price. Why do you spend your money for that which is not bread, and your labor for that which does not satisfy? Listen diligently to me, and eat what is good, and delight yourselves in rich food.” Isaiah 55:1-2
These may not be health foods but they have a satisfying ring to them. Meditation is a key part of health and we need to take time every day to slow down and commune with God.
