Entry: Awakened Week 17 Monday, November 05, 2007

Exo 16:3 And the people of Israel said to them, "Would that we had died by the hand of the LORD in the land of Egypt, when we sat by the meat pots and ate bread to the full, for you have brought us out into this wilderness to kill this whole assembly with hunger."

This pains me to write on this verse. Can you imagine accusing someone and God of intent to kill you with hunger? Outlandish! Yet for those that will not embark on a diet, this is mumbled under the breath. How many times I have heard, "I can't diet. I am hungry all the time." Feeling the tummy grumble occasionally becomes the biggest obstacle in someone's life. We have become so accustomed to eating like clockwork and to eating in over abundance that we have become undisciplined and ungrateful to all the many blessings we have.  And the great blessing is a second chance at returning the body to a normal and healthy weight.

We ask God to bless us with health and weight loss, yet grumble if we actually have to  contribute a sacrifice to our desire. We cannot have our cake and eat it to, so to speak. We can't complain of the inconvenience because it was strictly us that allowed our weight to spin out of control. And God clearly shows us His plan to normalcy again as we choose to accept it or decline.

For those of us that have hung in there, in only a few weeks time, we realize the body and mind are less demanding and we become satisfied with our daily bread. Our complaints subside as we adjust to the reasonable portion that God plainly shows to us we must now eat. What a shame for those that do not go past those first few weeks to find out weight loss is clearly superior than weight gain.

In this instance only, let us have a convenient memory and forget the plentiful meat pots and bread, and continue to feast on the Lord Jesus Christ who has given us the Plan to victory over the flesh.
