While studying one of my Study Bibles I read this in (Thessalonians 5:23): “Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.” We need to GET EMOTIONAL ABOUT IT. We must understand the difference between our spirit and our emotions. They are linked, yet they are separate. In our spirit, we have God-consciousness. The spirit realm is the realm in which we relate to God intimately and fully. In our bodies, we have self-consciousness, an awareness of our physical world. In our souls, we have self-consciousness. Our emotions are part of our real soul. Man looks on the outward appearance, but God looks ON THE HEART. That is your desire. It arises from your spirit, and it’s meant to be expressed by your soul. God expects you to get emotional about it.

As a diabetic, I have learned to enjoy my holiday meals. The strategy is to eat a lot of fruits and vegetables with other foods. This is one that I have cooked and liked. Cajun Stew, (1) teaspoon canola oil, (1) onion chopped, (1) stalk celery chopped, (1) clove garlic minced, (1) boneless skinless chicken thigh (about 4 ounces), cut into bite size pieces (2) turkey or chicken andouille sausage links (2 ounces each), sliced into ¼ inch thick pieces, (1) cup low sodium chicken broth, (1) can (about 14 ounces no salt added diced tomatoes, (2) cups frozen sliced okra (1) cup cooked brown rice, ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/8 teaspoon black pepper, 1/8 teaspoon dried thyme. Heat oil in large saucepan over medium high heat. Add onion, celery, and garlic; cook and stir (3) min. Add chicken and turkey sausage; cook and stir (2) minutes or until browned on all sides. Pour in broth, stirring to scrape up brown bits. Stir tomatoes, okra, rice, red pepper flakes, salt, black pepper and thyme into saucepan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and cook (10) min. Believe it or not it taste very good. Enjoy a good meal live a great life and thank God for the wonders He has given us.

Let us remember one another during this time of the year. My pastor said this in one of his many heart to heart talks “God will bless us sometimes in order for us to bless someone else. Love is so important!
