ADDICTED TO SUGAR CONTROL?

ONE: COMMENTS
TWO: FAGE GREEK YOGURT TREAT SUGGESTION

ONE of the HARDEST things to do in healthy EATING is eliminating sneaky SUGAR from our diet.

COMMENT I BELIEVE I READ SOMEWHERE: That sugar is only one or two atoms away from cocaine…? Send me the correct statement if I am incorrect. organicleader@yahoo.com

AND NOW that it’s well understood that we ought not have DIET SODAS….it’s even more difficult to find SOMETHING to take the place…yet at the same time to deny, to abstain, to cut back on OTHER sweet legal items…

…especially when one sees that the established NUTRITIONALLY ACCEPTED GUIDELINES state that persons SHOULD (should…) have no more than 4-6 TABLESPOONS OF SUGAR a Day..

Believe YOU me, that is perhaps THE HARDEST THING I have ever attempted to do…as, just like many of YOU, I grew up in a SUGAR seemingly centered, “CELEBRATING” (yet non drinker, drugs) HAPPY CAMPER LIFESTYLE.

AND I am trying, along with MANY of YOU, to revamp my own EATING, as well as to SELF EVALUATE what I can do to STOP from consuming SO MUCH…

HOWEVER, attempting to fully do this is in real DAILY LIFE is very hard…BECAUSE (even by ACCIDENT) we can down REAL SUGAR and FRUCTOSE, SUCROSE, many many OTHER additives in “Good Foods” which are government labeled are “nutritious” such as all kinds of granola, packaged nutrition bars….

….. and in oh, so many, healthy “low fat” “eating out” and “fast food” even JUICES, BREAD and among only a very FEW.

I am NOT going to be so unrealistic as to say, we now need to AVOID ALL FORMS OF SUGAR..it would take living on nuts and twigs potentially from the way HIDDEN SUGARS are presently interwoven in the WESTERN DIET.

One IDEA is to take BABY STEPS to avoid, to CUT BACK and to TAKE NOTE OF THE TIMES, and HOW MANY TIMES in each DAY that something tempting, tastey attempts to pass through YOUR LIPS…which contains SUGAR.

I am also working on this.

AND I will continue to deliberate upon THIS SUBJECT over the next few blogs.

FOR NOW:

Here is my OWN personal incompletely, purely private, subjective, analysis: ONCE every God given DAY I seem to want to have something CHOCOLATE (usually only DARK, due to it’s healthy qualities) AND or something “GOOD.”

4bb695ff-4396-2670-75aa-bd28dd81cca8-small-1

This is what I nickname “HAVING A PARTY IN YOUR MOUTH” nearly every long working day preference….YET, I have over time IMPROVED (meaning GOD’S ABIDING MERCY!)…

PLUS, this “Having a PARTY IN YOUR MOUTH” USED to mean that I (felt I “deserved” to ESCAPE LIFE?)..with a BIG FIZZY DIET COLA DRINK …YET with all of the recent health statistics (“Women who have 3 or more fizzy drinks ever week have a higher change of breast cancer”)….SO RIGHT NOW, I simply purposely ENJOY (unsweetened) TEA.

AND the pleasant, healthy personal discovery of GREEN and BLACK teas…which are also widely available, without sweetening, even at ST. ARBUCKS. (somebody’s nickname for the local STARBUCKS)..

BUT when the DOUBLE FUDGE CHOCOLATE ST. ARBUCKS BROWNIE also goes MIGHTY FINE along with the (nonsweetened) tea…hence an ever PRESENT temptation.

YET, (and do this depending up the LORD to direct YOU regarding HIS LEADING as well as YOUR OWN real MIND and CONSCIENCE).

4bb695ff-4396-2670-75aa-bd28dd81cca8-small-1
SUBMITTED IDEAS:
1. Avoid all sugar altogether
2. Use organic, natural sugar substitutes (Stevia, Truvia)
3. Keep a LOG of WHAT sugars you eat, the time and portion amount.
4. Eat sugar only if YOU have worked out that day
5. Avoid eating sweets, sugar after 6 PM
6. Combat sugar cravings by eating as many dark leafy green vegetables as possible. The finding is that STRESS but also NOT EATING ENOUGH VEGETABLES can trigger CRAVINGS FOR SUGAR.
7. Eat healthy but continue to ask God for His GRACE and MERCY and PRAY ABOUT FOOD ADDITIVES, POSSIBLE ADDITIONS at before every meal.
8. Claim,pray, contend for GALATIANS 5 FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT “temperance, self control”
8. Don’t ever TRY to be a PERFECTIONIST or you’ll wind up living AFRAID, BOUND and also make all around you ANNOYED.
9. Drink ENORMOUS QUANITITES of ever present FREE WATER

ASIDE: Many many years ago, Oprah Winfrey interviewed the two authors of the SUGAR BUSTER’S DIET. I bought a copy. BUT the only part I remember is something very helpful to me currently.

THEY STATED in that book: Eat all the carbs, sugars within ONE HOUR but then after that HOUR is over, do not eat ANY MORE SUGAR, CARBS, the rest of the day.

(Google search that book and see if it’ still in print)

BESIDES THE STARBUCK’S DOUBLE CHOCOLATE BROWNIE, even HEALTHY FOOD such as WHOLE GRAIN NUTRITION BARS, items marked LOW FAT and SMOOTHIES contain natural, man made SUGAR.

SMOOTHIES CONTAINS SUGAR: frozen/fresh fruit: strawberries, blue berries, JUICES, APPLE JUICE from Concentrate, etc.

TO SUMMARIZE: if we can totally DO WITHOUT..then PLAN TO REGULATE, to KEEP WATCH OUT FOR and then AVOID and LIMIT sugary, emotionally pleasing ITEMS.

CHOOSE the lesser of the two evils when picking NAME BRANDS…so READ the labels..

HEALTHY FROZEN YOGURT “PARTY IN YOUR MOUTH” MINIMIZED SUGAR RECIPE

I prefer GREEK YOGURT as it is more filling. BUT non Greek also WORKS.

ASIDE: THIS may be eaten out of the refridgerator OR FROZEN for a more tending toward ICE CREAM feel.

Search for FAGE Greek Yogurt (choose either ZERO FAT or 2%)..and NOTE how LOW in SUGAR it is (9 grams) vs NOOSA or others (35 grams)…

TO THE FAGE GREEK YOGURT (add to taste, but usually 2-3) STEVIA, TRUVIA and /or a 1-2 teaspoons of JAM…(I prefer blackberry)

AND you can also add FRESH FRUIT (Blueberry, banana, strawberries). which is vastly BETTER than using YOGURT with FRUIT already added..as that type of fruit has SUGAR ADDED.

Prepare ahead of time and let stand in fridge so that all of the additions will mix and add to the flavor…OR freeze in popicle molds, dishes…

APOLOGIES…WE NEED TO GET BACK ON PERCEIVER TRACK

Hi, Just a note to inform you that we are under conviction…being the overseer of an APOSTOLIC BLOG MALL http://www.apostolicblogmall.org can get a bit OVER FULL of wisdom, ideas, and hence we need to RE- DEFINE This “DISCERNMENT AND PERCEPTION” “discerning among the I Corinthians 14:10c MANY VOICES”…and make it stay on THAT course.

It’s nearly JULY so during that whole sabbatical MONTH we will probably REFORM this one..but repost some of the best ones…to make it BACK ON TRACK.

And then once we complete doing that, we’ll DISCERN AND PERCEIVE to each of our own (inquiring?) hearts content!

MIGHTY ANOINTED BLESSINGS!

DISCERN WHICH VOICE YOUR’RE LISTENING TO
(C) 2014 Taveau D’Arcy All copyrights reserved

“There are many voices in the world and each one has significance.” Apostle Paul in I Corinthians 14:10c.

If that be the case, then we need to use the following as a PRINCIPLE.

1. We need to make a LIST of all the many types of VOICES which are directed to us.

HERE is a partial list to examine. Then add your own “MANY KINDS OF VOICES.”

Human beings: family, spouse, friends, daily acquaintances, business, pastor, ministers, mama’s, dad’s, gossip, cell phone, voice mail, media, advice, “wise” counsel, TV, memory, self talk,

Supernatural type voices: recurring impressions, dreams, nightmares, what we believe is God’s supernatural Holy Spirit “inwared witness””still small voice. “eery” spooky spiritual,even audible voices.

NOW: add more here______________________________________________

2. TRY TO FIND BIBLE VERSES WHICH WIll HELP YOU DISCERN WHICH IS GOD’S VOICE AND WHICH IS FROM THE DARK, DEVILISH, OCCULT (DECEIVING) VOICE.

Here are few starter Bible verses.

I KINGS 19 God spoke to the prophet Elijah in the “still small (inaudible inward, spiritually DISCERNED and PERCEIVED) voice. voice.”

JOHN 10:4-5 “…..and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice. And a stranger will they not follow…”

JOHN 10:27 “My sheep hear My voice….”
The voice of the Good Shepherd who gives LIVE to His sheep”


GALATIANS 5:22-23
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.”


I TIMOTHY 1:7
“God has not given me a spirit of fear but of power, love and sound mind.”

To Test the MESSENGER’S VOICE BY SPIRITUAL FRUIT:
JAMES 3:17, “The wisdom that comes from above is first of all pure, peaceable, easily entreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, without hypocrisy.”

(it may come across as a SOMBER, SOBER “WAKE UP CALL” but it won’t be FEARFUL FRUIT producing (not scary, fear based, or spooky)

GALATIANS 5:22-23, But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

ADD YOUR OWN BIBLE VERSES HERE______________________________________

AND, as far too many get OVER ANALYTICAL, and TOO INTROSPECTIVE if they get off a personal BALANCE..then we advise reading, meditating on the following:

“Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”

ACTS 10:38 “Jesus went about doing goood, healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for the Lord was with Him.”

BIG REMINDER: WHILE THIS IS INTENDED to be a JUMP START, “Discernment” Starting point, DISCERNING BETWEEN THE VOICES is not an exact SCIENCE. “PERCEIVING, DISCERNING” is very subjective…so that is why it is extremely IMPORTANT to seek healthy Bible teaching and ministry FELLOWSHIP, ask many questions and seek the wise advice from OTHERS…

AND while the writer shares BIBLE TIPS which she herself has put into practice since very young (starting to be spiritually directed in college)..each and every persons JOURNEY will be full of ups and downs, many twists and turns and varying degrees of spiritual, emotional and DISCERNMENT over all maturity.

BIG KEY: Never try to be PERFECT..as all of this is a FREELY GRANTED GRACE given from the Lord Jesus Christ..

SECOND KEY:the ABOVE are listed as helpful suggestions, yet NO ONE should ever mistake these as FORMULAS. AND they are part of the personal RELATIONSHIP with each person who has been made alive spiritually (born again) by inviting Jesus Christ into your heart as Lord and Savior.

THIRD KEY:
PLUS the Bible teaches that “discernment comes by reason of use” meaning that “learning how to better clearly discern the VOICE OF THE GOOD SHEPHERD will come with trail and error and slowly getting more accurate, through even MANY FAITHFUL YEARS.

HEBREWS 5:14 “But strong meat belongeth to those who are of full age, even those who by REASON OF USE have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.”

SOWING GIFT CARDS TO THOSE IN TRUE NEED

…so that your giving will be in secret; and your Father who sees what is done in secret will reward you.” Matthew 6:4

Give a gift card in secret to someone in need. (You don’t really need a nonprofit to do that do you?)

SIMPLY be observant.
NOTICE WHOM GOD places in YOUR PATH, perhaps even NEXT DOOR to you or IN FRONT of YOU…

JUST PRAY that the LORD will REVEAL DIRECTLY TO YOU “his specific PERSONS” who may be suffering and in want….silently?

EXAMPLES: fill up the gas tank, leave bag of groceries, sow a gift card, buy college book, help with tuition, etc.

SINGLE PARENTS
RECENTLY DIVORCED
ELDERLY
COLLEGE AGE
COATS,SHOES, CLOTHES for CHILDREN
PERSONS LIVING IN HOMELESS HOTEL (Pay night(s)
GROUPS WHICH FEED THE POOR
ABUSED
SHELTERS FOR HOMELESS/ ABUSED
any other…

NO NEED to make a big SHOW of it. (See above Matthew 6:4)

AND WHO really NEEDS to have a nonprofit organization to do it for them?

YET, for those persons who do NOT KNOW anyone who is in need, or may want the tax write off…IFFM HIS ARM OF MERCY CHARITIES will accept the donation and give it to the Least of These (each of the above categories) in YOUR NAME. And each of these donations will go the local metroplex area.

IFFM LEADERSHIP HONORS THE FATHERS

“Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.’ Exodus 20:12

“Honour thy father and thy mother, as the Lord thy God hath commanded thee; that thy days may be prolonged, and that it may go well with thee, in the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.” Deuteronomy 5:16

The leadership of IFFM with DR TAVEAU D’ARCY LEADERSHIP MINISTRIES honors the FATHERS.

We honor the natural FATHER as well as the SPIRITUAL PIONEERING FOUNDER FATHERS of prior Christ following Bible teaching movements. (as it is upon THEIR shoulders which we each stand TODAY..and Bible equip /ministry lead TODAY)

DR TAVEAU D’ARCY honors her own dear senior pioneering pastor ,now departed, father: Senior Pastor M. Kimball Johnson, Jr. (see above picture)

And while IFFM doesn’t regard “spiritual fathering” in the religious modern ministry sense, we certainly AGREE with the SPIRIT OF THE FATHER residing in SOME mature leaders more than others…

AND WHILE IFFM Leadership fully yields to MATTHEW 23:9 “And do not call anyone on earth FATHER..” (which is in deep contrast to very MANY who now do, as it this is currently a very popular modern senior leadership grass roots apostolic TREND)…

IFFM DOES accept the fact that there are SOME God sent true mature spiritual leader persons, who DO have a like “anointing, imparting spiritual DNA” and even a shared kindred natural, spiritual ‘family feel’ TRUE SPIRIT.

THIS THEN is indeed AKIN to finding “the (nonlegalistic) SPIRIT OF ADOPTION in a ministry, mentor or human person “ACCEPTED IN THE BELOVED” over all God SENT sense.

And this has been the case with the IFFM founding pioneering minister, TAVEAU, and the accepting, encouraging and imparting, always supremely joyful, deeply wise and pure hearted insightful, the very faithful and BLESSED Reverend John Chappell.

SO TODAY IFFM honors, deeply appreciates and maturely respects Brother John Chappell who, for more than 20 pioneering ministry long, abiding years, was ” truly there” (along with faithful wife Pattie) during IFFM Ministry founder’s greatest longsuffering, highly eventful years.

Again BLESSINGS!

IFFM HONORS all single FATHERS today, who must serve as both father, nurturing mother as well as breadwinner, decision maker.

IFFM HONORS all single MOTHERS, who must serve as both head of one parent home, and who are forced to act as BOTH “father and mother” in the Lord AND in the natural over all sense: forced to stand in the office of the only breadwinner and having double, triple the ongoing responsibility and over all work load.

IFFM also includes and HONORS the married as well as single GRAND FATHERS and GRAND MOTHERS who now parent their children’s children, who also do similar.

And for each apostolic pioneering 5 fold office (akin to a spiritual/model of even a natural) PARENT, we BLESS and HONOR YOU today as well.

SO BLESSINGS and sending to each a HAPPY FATHER’S DAY!

WE CLOSE WITH PSALM 112 and agree with it in our prayers for all of YOU

“Praise ye the Lord. BLESSED IS THE MAN THAT FEARS THE LORD that delighteth greatly in his commandments.
His seed shall be mighty upon earth: the generation of the upright shall be blessed.
Wealth and riches shall be in his house: and his righteousness endureth for ever.
Unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness: he is gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous.
A good man sheweth favour, and lendeth: he will guide his affairs with discretion.
Surely he shall not be moved for ever: the righteous shall be in everlasting remembrance.
He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the Lord.
His heart is established, he shall not be afraid, until he see his desire upon his enemies.
He hath dispersed, he hath given to the poor; his righteousness endureth for ever; his horn shall be exalted with honour.
The wicked shall see it, and be grieved; he shall gnash with his teeth, and melt away: the desire of the wicked shall perish.”
