Time for a change: Hungry For More

by Ashley on October 20, 2010

As most of you have read, my “slogan” for this blog has been, “A Minor League Life, As a Minor League Wife, With a Major League God” since I started it.  But because I  no longer live the minor league life and am no longer am a minor league wife, I think it’s time to change my title.  I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately, for some reason, and it’s not really even that important.  But because all but one of those three things have changed that must mean that my life has changed quite a bit in the past few months; and it has.

I looked to God to give me a new title, something meaningful; and I think he did.  Check it out…what do you think?

Hungry for More.

As we continue to face this world one thing remains constant and that’s God’s love for us.  As long as we are responding to Him in the way in which He intends, we are satisfying Him, and that is most important.

For me, one of the most important reasons I believe in healthy eating and exercise is because this is not my body; this is God’s temple.  I was loaned this body from my Father and directed to take care of it.  Since it is the only earthly body I will ever have, neglecting it would be irresponsible and dissatisfying to God.  I do admit, however, sometimes I fail and sometimes I do neglect it, but then I remind myself that this body is not mine to destroy; if I destroy it, I am destroying one of God’s designs.

If I feed my body with the foods God intended me to, then I am satisfying His desires.  After all, think about how our bodies are made; so complex, so detailed, and so efficient.  God must have worked very hard and long to give me something of such great detail; why should I have the capability to destroy it?  Each day, we should strive to only fill our bodies full of the foods God intended us to in order to keep His machine working properly.

From 1 Corinthians 6:19-20, “Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are now your own?  For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.”

Think about that.  Have a great Wednesday!
