Sometimes, we look at a bag of food and don’t realize that not only will it ease the hunger pain, but it could also affect our entire being.
Day 4 was a little better than the last 3 days. It seems like my body is adapting to its new routine. I think it’s starting to conserve fuel and energy. My mind was more alert when I got to the office for an important meeting, and I did well during a radio interview later that afternoon.
It was a blessing to visit the newest Missional Food Pantry at Nu Corinthian Baptist Church and witnessed one person accepted the Lord Jesus Christ. In the process of receiving food, a person’s eternal destiny was changed forever!
When I got home, my wife was cooking taco meat. It was hard for me to concentrate; however, my soul (or my principle of life) kept me strong in the midst of the tempting smell of food.
When we give food at food pantries, let’s not forget that the food will only fill the stomach. Since food is one of the basic human needs, it affects our entire being. It affects how we think, how we behave, what our bodies may look like, our internal bodily functions and our emotion. Food is essential for us to live.
As I was eating my one and only meal late in the afternoon at Qdoba, I appreciated the taste; it seemed like it was more delicious than before. I am thankful that I am able to afford to buy food and have the freedom to eat good (healthy and tasty) food. I had a stronger sense of appreciation in eating, knowing that it not only would ease my hunger pains but would also nourish my mind, body, soul and spirit.
