In all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. —Proverbs 3:6

Growth happens through a steady stream of little choices. If you want to eat in a better way, if you want to take care of your body and exercise more, it takes a series of small choices that add up to big results. You make small choices at every meal or every time you lace up your sneakers.

The same thing is true with your soul. Spiritual health is built up day after day, experience after experience. That’s why the Bible so often uses the metaphor of a path to follow step by step.

The beauty of adding food to your life that heals, nourishes, and satisfies you deeply is that bite by bite it will shift your body and mind into a state where you naturally crave what makes you thrive and feel good. The same is true in the spiritual realm: small dedicated choices will gradually shift your soul to crave the presence of God, which makes you thrive.

Food for Thought: Small choices add up to transformation and, bite by bite and step by step.
