Spiritual Eating Disorder

Do you ever read the bible  and you finally just get it?

I feel like I don’t have this happen as much as I would like. But today while I was writing in my journal and reading I “got” something! I had recently heard a man talk about Billy Graham and how he thought of the bible as spiritual food and how he never wanted to miss a meal! When I heard this I was like, “whoa, that is so true” and I was convicted. I got it then but I really got it today.

I feel like I have a spiritual eating disorder. Most days, if not all, I only spiritually eat once and  if I only spiritually eat once then I don’t have enough energy to pour out into others, because I am hungry myself!  But we could also eat a lot and get spiritually fat and this isn’t necessarily a good thing! When we eat a lot in real life, in order to not get fat we have to go to the gym and exercise. So if we are getting all of our spiritual meals, we should be pouring into others, which will keep us spiritually healthy!

It is a constant inflow so that we can overflow into others as my youth pastor Darin says.

So lettuce eat, but don’t forget to exercise!

The Good, The Bad, The Ugly // January Edition

So the lets start with the good.
The Good//  I went skiing for the first time in January. It was super fun because I went with Ben and his aunt!  I was a little intimidated at first because 1.They are both really good at skiing and Ben is also an amazing snowboarder 2. I am from Texas and we don’t have snow there so connect the dots and 3. I tried snowboarding and that was just a fail (it was at midnight and snowboarding is just hard in general). So I was anxious to see how skiing would go. Lets just say that like the slopes I had my ups and downs.
The Bad// I went down the wrong hill.
The Ugly// I fell. Hard.
I have a bruise on my bum. tehe.

This is how I felt going down that hill.

IMG_0275

What I am wearing…
Boots.. as always
Blue Cords: Herbergers
White Top: Old Navy
Vest: Hand me me down
Scarf: Target
Belt: From my g-ma 🙂

1. I haven’t been keeping up with my W.W. and I will try to get better at this! But sorry if I don’t:)
2. I am not a math student. Every time that I go to my calc class, I ask myself “why am I here?” I really don’t know why but I can’t quit now! Only two weeks left! Whoop!?!
3. I am really into listening to podcasts from Liberty University! Their convocations are a great way to start my day! CANNOT wait to go there!
4. I love Trejo Thursdays! Look it up on YouTube and you will laugh so hard! I literally can watch these videos all day! They are great for relieving stress!
5. For some reason I have been having really weird dreams lately involving my friend Renee! For instance, she was getting married but the wedding was really weird. All of the bridesmaids sat in the audience and in the middle of the wedding service we went to a waterfall?! Also they never got married. 😦 and in my other dream she shaved her head!? What’s wrong with me?!

Anyone got any confessions to make?!

Wardrobe Wednesday\\ Baby It’s Cold Outside

So far Wardrobe Wednesdays have been going pretty well! I’ve been pretty pro-active about getting them done and I even took the pictures yesterday (Tuesday), so I actually wore this on Christmas! I know its isn’t very festive, but that’s OK. The only thing that is getting hard about W.W. is that it is getting so cold outside! Yesterday, when me and J came in from taking pictures outside, we ran to the fireplace and pretty much put our hands in the fire! I couldn’t tell if my hand were hot or cold anymore. I think my mom was right when she told me to be functional, rather than fashionable! Oh well, its all worth it 🙂
