Last weekend we were in San Antonio, and this weekend we were in Dallas. I would have mentioned that on here, but Mr. Incredible doesn't think it is wise to tell the world that we are away from our home. Wise man. :)
I love all things dairy. When I was 5, I won the title "Little Miss Houston." During the pageant they read out your likes and dreams, etc.
My favorite foods: Fried Cheese, Grilled Cheese, and Macaroni and Cheese. Gee, thanks Mom! lol
If I had to pick two things to eat for the rest of my life, I would choose pizza and ice cream. And I LOVE to eat big bowls of cereal all throughout the day.
So, you can imagine my shock at the thought that I may be Lactose Intolerant.
Last Sunday, on the way home from San Antonio, I started to feel ick. No problem. I came home and ate dinner, and by that evening I started to feel REALLY bad! My stomach was literally sticking out, (no gas just massive bloat), and I had major cramps like I needed to go to the bathroom. Well, I never got sick, but I sure felt horrible. The next day I ate barely anything thinking I was sick. The next day I ate cereal, and this time I actually got sick. This continued back and forth throughout the week. I have come to the conclusion that it has been dairy that has been making me sick.
I am so bummed! I LOVE all things dairy!
I am probably the pickiest eater out there, and this significantly lessens my scope of what to eat.
Now, before I go on- I am not a DR but I know that DRs always say, "first change your diet and exercise before we start any meds," so that is what I am going to do. If this continues with a change of diet, then I will go to the DR.
I think I am being punished by God- punished by His grace.
You see, as a believer in Christ- when you get saved, the Holy Spirit comes to live inside you. It helps you to live a different life, forsake sins, and to grow in holiness.
I am in no ways perfect. BUT, it would be disrespectful to the Holy Spirit to not acknowledge that I have grown immensely, and have forsaken many sins.
With that being said, there is one sin that I have struggled with for years, and I have had a hard time forsaking it.
I just can't get rid of it. I think that is why God is punishing me by His grace.
You see, I am sinning against Him. Instead of allowing me to keep abusing my body and sinning against Him, He has made a way for me to give up that which I have clung so dearly to. He easily could have allowed me to give this up on my own- that would have taken a long time, and would have been a hard struggle for me. Seeing how weak I am, He has once again stepped in, covered me by His grace, and took away the sin from me.
Do I really want to have Lactose Intolerance? No. BUT, lets face it, is there any other way that I could stop eating pizza and ice cream on a regular basis? No. My self control is not that strong.
Even in this "horrible" thing, I can still see God's grace in it. It is so awesome to serve the King of Kings!
