This morning I woke up with peace in my mind and joy in my heart. Unlike a few months ago, sometimes I woke up with anxiety attacks! I was worried sick at times for thinking that I would have strokes due to my health issues.
For a couple years in a row, I was scared to even coming back to see my physician for an annual check due to my poor health. I kept telling myself to work on my diet and exercise before I see my doctor. However, I had no control over my eating. I loved eating! I consumed too much cholesterol which has caused my level went up to the roof. I knew I needed help, but I was too weak to do it on my own, so I turned to God. I have heard in the past that some people were able to quit drinking by simply praying and believing in God. As a recent believer in prayer, I prayed sincerely to help me control my bad habit of eating. That was just a little over a year ago. At the end of December 2020, my prayers answered. I am happy and grateful for his grace and salvation!
For the first time in my life last December, I binged watching movies on Netflix. I came across this one titled “What The Health”. Normally, I would not watch it, but since I watched so many movies randomly, I turned it on. To my surprised, it got my attention from start to finish. It says most of our medical issues due to overconsumption of animal products. What really got me was seeing the cruelty of killing animals. After watching it, I had no desire of eating meat. It kind of grosses me out whenever I eat it. I turned my interest in cooking vegetarian and vegan dishes. Being a passionate cook, I can easily turn bland tofu into tasty gourmet dishes which I and my daughter have enjoyed lately.
I am now a true believer in prayer. I believe no problem is too big. If you cannot take care of your problems, put them in the hands of our Creator.
