The difference between a vegan and a vegetarian is that a vegan eliminates all animal products from his or her diet, including dairy. Those following a vegan lifestyle generally do not wear leather and avoid products made from animals such as wool, silk and down. Vegans’ tremendous humanity for animals is an abiding, overriding conviction in their lives.
Now eating chicken to me does not make me gag ( most times ) but I must get a high dosage of protein and iron due to my body levels. Therefore, eating chicken in varied ways 2 to 3 days a week is something that I must do and I mix it up in salads or pastas etc. so it is not a killer -
BUT – THE WHOLE RED MEAT THING – OH GOD – KILL ME NOW!!
I have NOT eaten red meat in over 20 years until like 2 years ago – my doctor said that I needed to be admitted for an emergency iron infusion. I am like huh – what is that etc. Iron pills is not enough so I MUST eat a small portion of red meat EVERY WEEK! How do I do this you may say – I psych my mind up to find previous dishes that my father used to make and go to a RESTAURANT where I know that they will make it edible. I do not cook red meat so me trying to make something would cause me to BARF like I have done plenty other times.
In fact, there are a great many people lumped into the group of vegetarian. Lacto-vegetarians will eat dairy, but not eggs. Ovo-vegetarians will eat eggs, but not dairy. Lacto-ovo vegetarians will eat eggs and dairy products. The reasons for these choices are varied and based on individual beliefs. In some cases they are based on moral choices, and in others on dietary needs or simple preference. Octo-vegatarians ( WHERE I FALL ) prefer not to eat meat and only eat what is necessary for the sake of their health and nothing more or less. However, they do enjoy the pleasures of dairy products and nuts.
Nonetheless, you would be shocked to see how pleasant vegan food actually is! Think of a huge Thanksgiving feast – I EAT ALL OF THE SIDES but do not touch the meat –
It is indeed all of the “side items” that really make everyone so full and stuffed during the holidays!!
Literally The JOURNEY of My Life – Whew……. I Miss My Father -
Pride ………….. It Works in many subtle ways within the body of Christ. It gives a false feeling of peace and well-being. You may feel growth, peace, and comfort, but Leviathan gives false gifts and false worship. Jesus, the very image of the Father, stood for humility. Without humility, love and submission become only hollow words. Pride prevents obedience to God. Humbling ourselves in the sight of the Lord is the very key to any form of exaltation.
Matthew 11:29 I am meek and lowly of heart.
THE SPIRIT OF PRIDE/LEVIATHAN IN YOUR LEADERSHIP: Father of the Children of Pride Leviathan flops on and over the church like a wet smothering blanket stopping revelation from coming into the house of God when this level of pride is in your leadership. The breath doesn’t exist in this church. One of the focusing objectives of this spirit is to stop deliverance and deliverance ministries. When Leviathan is in your leadership, you can pray deliverance over people and nothing happens. Leaders don’t feel like ministering deliverance and others don’t feel like they need any deliverance. This spirit is also one of the reasons why miracles, signs and wonders are not taking place in our churches. You will also find people experiencing sleepiness in service, or difficulty in reading the word of God. The only way this spirit will be defeated in a church is by way of the LEADERSHIP REPENTING and Humbling themselves.
Thanks MD Hester!
Servants don’t advertise. You’ll never see anybody with a sign up, “Quiet, servant at work.” People don’t put that on their resume; they don’t put that on their business card. It’s not popular to advertise yourself if you’re a servant.
Servants don’t advertise. In fact, you don’t even know they are around until they are gone. Then suddenly you can’t find the things that you need from the people that has ALWAYS been there to aid you. From copies, to helping you with your kids, to working at church, to picking you up from school, you can’t find your papers, there is nobody to fix the coffee, there is nobody to water the plants, to make phone calls, there is nobody to remember the birthdays, there is nobody to do all that stuff that you just took for granted. Where is someone to help? Where is everyone at? I NEED HELP!! ( LOL )
You don’t miss a servant until they are gone. You don’t realize what you had until they are no longer here. the Year of the Servant. A good theme verse is “I am among you as one who serves.” One of our goals in LIFE should be to develop a servant’s spirit.
To be honest, servants are unusual people. You find servants in unusual places. Then we discovered that servants will do unusual and unlikely things. Lastly, the fact that servant hood begins at home. If you are going to be a servant, you can’t just talk about it on Sunday morning. It is going to touch your life as a mother, father, husband, wife, brother, sister, child or parent.
- God does have great plans for your life!
- God’s will, first, is that we have a relationship with Him through His Son, Jesus Christ.
- God wants us to be Christ’s disciples.
- The Bible will help us to know God’s will.
- God promises to give us wisdom if we just ask Him in prayer, believing that He will give it.
- God has given us the Holy Spirit for guidance.
- We should listen to the advice of Godly men and women that God has placed in our lives.
- The Bible says that there is a peace that comes when we are pleasing God with our lives.
- We should trust God in faith that He will carry out His will in our lives.
- God has given each of us gifts and abilities to use in His service.
God needs people who are looking for personal change in the world. I encourage you to go all the way despite the challenge of leaving a positive impact on this earth. Everybody wants this thing nowadays and also to keep us moving forward. A Godly motivated place could maintain a nonbeliever’s soul.
We are all God’s people, which implies that we have to live a holy life. Once you become God’s child you will be greatly honored and all people will be looking at you, and the devil as well.
Gods words of encouragement states that we have to stay unseen always and mark a free way of life, a way of life anybody moreover could be arrogant to live. So we have to be careful of the lifestyle we show individuals, we may not speak Godly and stay an unholy life.
Finally, read the bible on psalms 30vs4 it says that praise the Lord you saints of his and offer thanks at the commemoration of his godliness.
