GOD WORKS WHILE WE WAIT

REFLECTION

If we are honest, we all hate to wait. In fact, most often we say something like, “I can’t believe this is taking so long; it’s costing me time I don’t have!” That’s because most of us consider waiting to be wasting. But it’s not so with our God.

God works while we wait. Even when you can’t see what He is doing, God is always orchestrating the events of heaven and earth to accomplish His purposes for your life. Trust in His unfailing love—love that moved Him to send a Savior from heaven to restore and rescue you. God’s plans for your life will not be thwarted. Wait patiently, knowing that waiting is never wasted when you are waiting on God.

MEDITATION

Come Thou Long Expected Jesus

Come, Thou long expected Jesus
Born to set Thy people free;
From our fears and sins release us,
Let us find our rest in Thee
Israel’s Strength and Consolation,
Hope of all the earth Thou art;
Dear Desire of every nation,
Joy of every longing heart.

Born Thy people to deliver,
Born a child and yet a King,
Born to reign in us forever,
Now Thy gracious kingdom bring.
By Thine own eternal Spirit
Rule in all our hearts alone;
By Thine all sufficient merit,
Raise us to Thy glorious throne.

Charles Wesley, 1707–1788

PRAYER

Father, I am here waiting for You. My heart and hands are open to Your purposes and plans for my life. Give me the patience I so desperately need and lead me in my waiting. Though my feelings may not be there just yet, I believe You are moving on my behalf right this minute, protecting, defending, preparing, providing. Give me grace to keep trusting in You in the face of the gale force winds of doubt that are blowing all around me. Anchor my heart in You. Amen.

EATING TO REDUCE THE RISK OF HEART DISEASE
Feb 19 2010

EATING TO REDUCE THE RISK OF HEART DISEASE

New findings from the Mayo study, which were published in the European Heart Journal, suggest that reducing heart risk requires increasing the percentage of lean muscle mass at the expense of body fat.

Eating a healthy diet is important in reducing body fat, too, but Mayo Clinic researchers observe that if you only restrict calories, you risk losing an equal amount of body fat and lean muscle tissue and thus you could end up weighing less without significantly reducing the percentage of body fat.

The best way to avoid this is by consuming a diet that is a healthful balance of proteins, carbs and fats.  Beware of extreme calorie restriction or low carb diets…they usually cause muscle breakdown.  As the above referenced study indicates….it’s dangerous to lose weight at the expense of losing lean muscle tissue.  

 

335 calories and 5 grams of fat!

I need to comment on the Mayo clinic study.  It clearly states low calorie diets are bad.  It doesn't state that reducing carbs is bad.
Somebody's comments states low calorie and low carbs are bad.
SEVERAL blind studies and medical studies are now finding that
reducing simple carbohydrates in our diets helps blood sugar, heart health, and (believe it or not) reduces cholesterol! Low amounts of complex carbohydrates are important and combined
with protein, studies show that body fat is reduced.

Ok, I can't pass this one up....My low calorie grilled cheese. I use Sandwich Thins 100% whole wheat. It is 100 calories for the top and bottom. Also, 1oz of low fat or reduced fat cheese is 80 cal. 1 medium tomato is 35 calories. One medium zucchini is 35 cal. Less than 200 total becaue you don't use the whole tomato or zucchini.  I must mention. I like to put my slices of zucchini and tomato in the oven and toast it just a bit before I put it on my sandwich. If you wanted to double your cheese (2oz) you still have a grilled cheese under 300 cal. It is AWSOME.....
