The Temple of God

My husband and I have been trying to watch what we eat—eating more fresh vegetables and fruits, and refraining from eating red meat, fatty foods, and fried foods. I never realized that eating fresh vegetables can be so satisfying!

In the past year or so I have lost about 30 pounds. I want to take care of my body. I think what drives me to do this is 1 Corinthians 6:19— “Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God?”

Not only am I watching what I eat, but I am trying to exercise regularly—not because it’s the “in thing” to do, but because I don’t want to have health problems in the future. A couple years ago, my blood test showed that I was on the verge of getting high cholesterol, but my levels are normal now.

Healthy eating reminds me of Daniel 1:12 &15, “’Please test us for ten days on a diet of vegetables and water,’ Daniel said…. At the end of the ten days, Daniel and his three friends looked healthier and better nourished than the young men who had been eating the food assigned by the king.”

How are you taking care of God’s temple?

  1. The beans are transformed since they go through the necessary process of being roasting and
    this is vital process where the conventional properties
    and the chemical properties of the inexperienced coffee beans will occur because of the the temperature that are reached because they’re heated.
    Lets the do-it yourselfer do your Chirstmas shopping
    for them. People who have hypoglycemia, diabetes,
    or high blood pressure should also speak to their physician
    before taking the extract, since it is known that green coffee extract lowers blood sugar and
    blood pressure.
