Help in Time of Famine

posted by sbrown

The Lord knoweth the days of the upright….and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied.  Psalm 37: 18a and 19b

Having a tough day?  The Lord knows all about it and gives a special promise. He will satisfy in times of famine.

Famine is a time when there is not enough food to go around. People are hungry.  Does that sound like your day on a diet?  When you start cutting back on the calories and saying “no” to high carb, high sugar foods, your body thinks a famine has hit.  To make matters worse, you probably have been used to dealing with tough times by feeding your stomach to console yourself. Now you really feel sorry for yourself, empty, and grouchy!

The good news?  God truly satisfies.  When you are feeling grumpy and hungry, get yourself a low glycemic snack  that will keep your blood sugar steady, like a piece of fruit, a cheese stick, or some celery sticks with peanut butter. And take some time with the Lord, who knows your needs and who will give you help that truly satisfies.

Start listing things God has done for you and thanking Him for it.  Think about some encouraging scripture verses — like Psalm 37.  Listen to some uplifting music and get busy doing something positive to serve Him.  Ask Him for help and you will find that He not only makes up for that sugary snack you didn’t eat, He satisfies your soul!

Eating to live and living for Christ,
Susan Jordan Brown

I looked at the recipe in disbelief.  NINE eggs? Surely that was a misprint.  Only 3/4 cup flour in a cake?  Not likely.  As I studied about coconut flour, though, I saw that, yes, it does take that many eggs to make a successful cake with this healthy type of flour, and it takes a much smaller
