When Practicality Becomes Powerful

Springer Mountain Farms Organic Chicken + Ziploc freezer bags = A perfect duo

Frozen chicken. 

What could poultry possibly have in common with the fragrance of Christ? I wondered too until I considered this:

As a renewed member of Weight Watchers, one of my favorite go-to meals has become organic greens topped with chicken, carrots, broccoli, a few almonds and a pinch of Craisins.

Not so long ago, I purchased ready-to-go rotisserie chickens from Bi-lo. One chicken equaled three salads, max. However, once the broccoli boosted my brain power, I realized I’d be better off (as would my cash envelopes) if I purchased the six-pack bag of Springer Mountain Farms organic chicken

Now, I broil all six pieces of chicken at once, cut them into bite-size chunks, weigh out 2.5 points worth, and freeze them in individual bags. In the morning, I transfer the single bag to the fridge and voila! The chicken is thawed and ready to be devoured for lunch.

There are a multitude of reasons why making savvy food (and money) choices contributes to a life lived more wisely for the Lord. Yes, I want to be around to dote on our grandchildren for many years to come but ultimately, the main purpose is to serve and glorify Christ for as long as He sees fit. Basically, a healthy body produces a healthy servant.

Weight Watchers Electronic Food Scale

Only God could take organic chicken, a few veggies, a Weight Watchers food scale and zip-lock freezer bags and use it for His ultimate glory. 

I never tire of watching Him peel back the practicality of life revealing the underlying power of the moment.

So, how about you? How have you recently seen God transform the practical into something powerful? 

“Therefore, preparing your minds for action, and being sober-minded,
set your hope fully on the grace that will be brought to you at the
revelation of Jesus Christ. As obedient children, do not be conformed to
the passions of your former ignorance, but as he who called you is
holy, you also be holy in all your conduct…”  1 Peter 1:13-15
