I love to eat junk food. I can snack all day on it. But the older I get the more bad effects I get from that junk food. I feel yucky. I don't feel like doing anything. I am grouchy. But when I lay aside the junk food and drink water and eat salads, I feel so much better. I have much more energy. I don't feel gross, and well you have to admit...the belly looks better!!! And my attitude is so much better. More patience with my children and just a happier me. I guess that it is kindof like that with the television. I notice that sometimes when I watch a lot of tv, it seems to affect my attitude. My housework suffers, I would rather watch a show than spend time with my children. But when I shut off the tube, there seems to be so much time to do things. I can actually hear what my children are saying and I am not preocupied with...let's face it...a tv show that is not at all important in my life. I think that when it comes to the Lord that we can put so many "unimportant" things in our life that we can't hear him. We always have the tv on or the radio on. Or we are just so busy there is no time to hear him. Or we eat so much food that we are too full and lazy to pray. The Bible says to be still and know that I am God. It is hard to learn to be disciplined, but what great rewards we can reap from it.
