Eat Whenever You Eat

For the past year I have been focused with my eating. I eat 6 meals a day. Every 2-3 hours I eat a portion of protein and carbs. 

Every day! Every meal! I feel it when I don’t. I’m intentional with this plan. I’m thinking about the future and my health. 

I have seen results. I released about 25 pounds from August 28-December 29 last year. I’ve kept the weight off. I’ve gained muscle. I’m content. Lord willing I’m never going back. 

But I’ve realized I will need to do more. I will need to EAT whenever I EAT! What do I mean? I’m so glad you asked! 

For over a year now I wake up early. It’s my time. It’s my time to think, to read scripture, and to pray. I feel off when I don’t. I’m not always perfect, but it’s about progress and not perfection. 

I read a scripture this morning from Psalm 119:164 where King David said, “Seven times a day I praise you, Because of your righteous ordinances.”

David was a man of God. He loved the Lord. He made a lot of mistakes, but he would repent and return to the Lord. 

David was a busy man. He was a king, husband, father, warrior, song writer, etc.  Yet 7 times a day he said he would praise God. His mind was constantly on the Lord. 

What if I ate whenever I ate? What if I ate from the word of God whenever I ate my physical meals? 

What if every time I consumed a meal I hit the pause button and read a couple of scriptures? What if I said a prayer and gave praise to God? How much stronger would I be spiritually? I’m about to find out. While I have spent time in prayer and reading the word in the morning, I need more. I need to stay full. I need my spiritual nutrients. 

Will you join me in eating whenever you eat? 7 meals a day! 

When we are eating that much whatever the devil wants to offer us will not be appealing at all. 

It’s time to eat!

I CAN DO and SO CAN YOU. Life is all about having the right kind of attitude. We will face challenges. We have to decide how we will respond. Getting an ICD (Internal Cardio-Verter Defibrillator) in 2010 forced me to make a decision about my mindset. I decided that I CAN DO. What about you? Let's go. Check out my blog at www.benjaminlee.blog and my books on Amazon for more motivation.

  1. I eat five times a day. I have created a habit of having a scripture that I read and pray about each time I eat. I notice a difference in my spiritual well-being when I am consistent about this. Thanks for sharing these thoughts.
