The other day since I wasn’t researching on my computer, writing or answering comments from mine or other blogs, I went through closets, dusted shelves and cleaned the grout on my kitchen counters. What a sense of accomplishment THAT was! Afterwards, I curled up and read an interesting devotional I’ve been attempting to get to. A peaceful and intimate afternoon with our Lord, how refreshing. Isn’t spending time with the One who gave us Life, comforting?!
Praise God we don’t have to go through a series of voice messages (aren’t they frustrating?) in our prayer life before we reach the One who answers all our questions. Sometimes of course, prayers aren’t answered in the way we expect or as quickly as we wish, but He does provide for all our needs nevertheless. His timing is always perfect..
Thirdly, nutritionally, how similar to those who want instant gratification in weight loss too. Perhaps, like me who doesn’t understand computer terminology, do you get impatient with nutritional terminology and become impatient as well? Patients have asked me: How am I supposed to know how much 20 grams is anyway?! Forget it. (4 grams equal a teaspoon by the way.) Some are too impatient to follow practical instructions and would rather search for an easier fix for quicker weight loss. Don’t. Do. That! You will be setting yourself up for yo-yo dieting and future health issues. Understanding physiology takes time, but it is certainly worth the journey.
One good thing came from all this however. I didn’t destroy my hubby’s computer or lost any files. See, there is always something to praise God for!
