I was eating spicy fried rice and afterwards, I got really bad heartburn that wouldn’t go away.
Being dramatic, I placed my hand on my chest to feel my heart racing and that had me thinking:
What am I feeding my heart? Whatever I eat, those nutrients are being absorbed into my bloodstream and that blood is passing through my heart.
So what am I feeding my heart?
I have acid reflux so I’m not supposed to have fried food and spicy food but do I listen? Most of the time, no.
It made me realize I really need to start watching what I eat and actually take care of myself, otherwise, I’m going to continue to feel bad.
My sister lectures me about it all the time and when I start complaining about how sick I am from eating something I’m not supposed to have, she shrugs her shoulders.
That had me thinking again:
What am I feeding my heart in the spiritual sense?
I bet sometimes God just shrugs his shoulders and shakes his head at us by how foolish we are being over and over again, like: “When will these people learn?”
When will we learn?
We have to protect what we are feeding our hearts, y’all. Physically and spiritually.
Are you constantly filling yourself with Netflix shows and movies, unrealistic romances, unrealistic bodies you see on Instagram? Or are you feeding your heart the Gospel? The words that are alive and true in the Bible?
We do become what we eat. Are you feeding your heart what the world has to offer or what the Lord says is good for you?
