Hello from Las Vegas!!!!!!!!!!
Mr. FFF and I are on a family trip (my parentals, and my bro and sister-in-law) to Vegas, that my parentals have been promising to take us on since we were 21!
I’ve never been and I’m pretty excited! I’m not a gambler at all….but I’ve been told there is SO much to see and do just walkin’ around!
Anyway. You’re not here to discuss my Las Vegas antics, you want some Sunday reflection GOODNESS.
It’s kinda crazy how you learn to start hearing God, and being able to better determine when it’s HIS voice (and not satan’s voice) speaking to you, once you really start to spend time in the Word.
Like I told you a few weeks ago, I’ve been making myself do all my devotionals (and slowly) before I am even allowed to turn on my computer, and I’ve been listening to a Joyce Meyer podcast every day. This is my attempt to start becoming a “doer” of the word and not just a “hearer.”
And, I’ve been DIGGIN’ it.
I mean, there are days where I’m like UGHH DO I REALLY HAVE TO READ ALLLLL of DUETERONMY 3? I have to share my post on Facebook RIGHT NOW.
Which, is stupid. But, I’m not perfect.
But, last week, I was in Austin, Texas for a Food Blogging Conference. I was out to dinner with some blogging friends (who know of my food issues) and one of them (who also happens to be an RD and knows about health) was like “you look really healthy!”
If you remember a few weeks back I wrote a post about how God has put it on my heart to gain 10 lbs. My weight is still quite low, and I am just SO afraid to gain anything, that He has told me I need to do it….to overcome that fear. You know, “feel the fear and do it anyway.” With 10 lbs, I would actually be considered a healthy weight.
But, when she said this. I IMMEDIATELY went into “if an RD says I look healthy, I’m good. I’ll just not do this weight gain thing.”
I came home the next day, and listened to my Joyce podcast. GUESS WHAT? It was on how we need to watch for Satan because he will speak to us in the most innocent sounding ways, to try to get us to disobey what we feel God is telling us.
It clicked. Maybe that comment was Satan working it what seemed like a total flippant, innocent way. Note: not saying my friend is Satan, I <3 her, but it’s something I would have never even considered had I not been trying to grow closer to God, and learning to hear his voice.
Anyway, all that to say, it was just this cool moment that I had. When you realize you’re actually learning to hear God speak in your life, it’s pretty amazing and SO worth the “MUST SHARE ON FACEBOOK stress!” 😉
Back to looking at hotels!
See you soon! <3
