All the noms and ‘nomming’ has been delicious lately. Nomming is a term I use for ‘eats’ or eating. I have seen other people use it, but I understand that it’s a bit of an odd word. I can not complain at all. I’ve been nomming on giant salads, ice cream, toast, pancakes, and just about every food. The miraculous thing to me is that most of it has been done with little to no digestive pain. SAY WHAT?!?! Literally, I serve the God of miracles, because I never thought I would see this day. That’s why I wanted to share what I’ve been nomming on of late because I’m just incredibly ‘knock my socks off’ grateful for how much healing the Lord has wrought in my body this year. Even though I know it won’t ever be perfect, I’m still just soaking in the goodness and grace of God that we can experience here on this earth.
Let’s start out by talking about just how fast I go through the Justin’s Chocolate hazelnut butter. This stuff is literally like ‘Nutella’, and I actually think that in some cases it’s better because it has more of the hazelnut flavor.
I’ve been putting it on toast, yogurt, pancakes, icecream, and my fingers….
I’ve been enjoying yogurt. Of course that’s probably no surprise, but I haven’t been eating yogurt as much lately because I wanted to avoid food ruts that say, ‘Eat safe food.’
However, I do like trying out new flavors of yogurts, and my sister got this fun yet a bit . . . odd sounding flavor at Safeway called ‘Orange and Ginger.’ I was admittedly, skeptical, but I decided to throw some chocolate cake on it and try it.
I’m so grateful for life lately. God is teaching me so much about finding contentment and joy in Him no matter what. There are super up days and down days, but through it all God is faithful. Jesus’ love for me is so abounding; I can’t express it.
Jesus Love is constant even in the suffering, the tiring times, the weary times.
And life lately has felt hard. I’ve been longing after things, having heart longings for things that don’t seem like they’re right around the corner, and though I am SOOO happy and couldn’t be more thankful for life right now, I have to admit that there are some heart longings in the depth of me that I’m wondering what to do with; yet I’m happy to be here at this spot. I’m happy to be learning and growing and knowing that I haven’t arrived and that that’s what
One verse that actually really stuck out to me yesterday that has been just enveloping and encouraging my heart in love is this one from Hosea 14:4, ‘I will heal their backsliding, I will love them freely: for mine anger is turned away from him.’
Wow. God will LOVE me freely. He heals my backsliding.
Pray for me. Pray for rest and peace in the love of God knowing that if He is for me who can be against me, for trust to know that God’s plan is perfect for me no matter what trials it may hold, and joy in Him knowing that He never changes.
Stay tuned for a really fun podcast episode coming up on Thursday . . . 🙂
