Malachi 3:10
“”Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,’ says the LORD Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it.’”

To all those that died of starvation : Always remember this

I want us all, as we read this post to take a minute of silence for everyone one that has passed away due to hunger or starvation, starting from soldiers to the less privileged and so forth. Sometimes we underestimate what we have and forget to appreciate and realize how God has blessed us. 

A day before yesterday being thursday, I refused to eat all day. I didn't sleep so well at night and I wasn't feeling hungry, my monthly flow was on and it made me really uncomfortable and I kept frequenting the toilet. I woke up, did the necessary, started working on my website, writing posts  and replying emails. I already planned with my friend with whom I traveled with on visiting the karaoke hall to catch some fun. I took my bath, I started dressing up and I could hardly lift my body cream, I struggled through the process. I wore a pantyhose, it felt really uncomfortable I removed it and decided to wear jeans and sweater. I managed to dress up, then we got out of the house and I was really struggling to walk and keep up with the slow steps my friend was taking. We were walking to the restaurant to eat before going to the karaoke hall. I had to tell my friend to stop and I slowly walked into the pharmacy close by, they saw my state and quickly gave me a chair to sit down. I sat down and asked them for glucose  and water which was given to me immediately. I sat for some minutes and got little energy and worked to the restaurant where I had soup and mashed potatoes which I had to force myself to eat. I felt better in less than 5 mins after eating.

Generally, our body needs food to function, food converted to energy and used to fuel the body. Our bodies digest the food we eat by mixing it with fluids (acids and enzymes) in the stomach. When the stomach digests food, the carbohydrate (sugars and starches) in the food breaks down into another type of sugar, called glucose. The stomach and small intestines absorb the glucose and then release it into the bloodstream. Once in the bloodstream, glucose can be used immediately for energy or stored in our bodies, to be used later.
I felt like I my strength was being taken away slowly and slowly, I was struggling with my steps, it felt like I was fighting war. At that point, If I had taken any more steps I might have fainted. Mind you I had chocolate earlier that day, but yet it could hardly take me through half of the day. As I sat at the restaurant waiting for my friend to finish eating because I rushed my food already, I started reflecting and this got me really thankful. A lot of people died of starvation not having what to eat, the weakness, strengthlessness and slowly feeling your body shut down is very cold. I imagined a whole lot in few minutes and I want urge us to always help those in need on the street and around. Food is very essential to everyone.

  1. So true, food is essential to everyone. There was times I wasn't able to eat anything due to an illness, I wouldn't wish it upon anyone, starvation is horribly painful. It is so sad that so many people still die from hunger.

  5. It is unfortunate that there are parts of the world that has starvation going on. Even more when there is so much food waste in others. You're amazing for putting yourself in their shoes for a day. Food is important and we need to do whatever we can to bring our world to a better place. Even myself, I try to reduce food waste as much as possible.
