What an awesome article in testimony - that exemplifies our very important presence and example in this world. God created man, and placed us on this earth for multiple reasons; all for the glory of God.
We as Seventh-Day-Adventist’s; have been “an ever present” example for centuries. God, in his infinite wisdom and specialities; gifted us with his word, life example, and the health message. We took it for granted; the world adopted and accepted it; yet, we take advantage of God’s Grace! You have adopted it!
I first met Dr. DeWitt Williams years ago; listening in a church service as he preached about healthy living. Many pastors preach, but fail to live the message. Dr. DeWitt Williams lives the message!
Dr. DeWitt Williams has shared an astounding article compiling inspirational, medical & educational truths; and then, compelling us - to “God’s Word”; God’s Ordinances; EGWhite’s Writings; the inspiration of the Holy Spirit; and Dr. William’s life experience.
I remembered the genuineness of his prophetic offering in sermon - this was a spiritual awakening that “we must all contribute to Gods message by sharing its honor and goodness, in communicating this article in as many avenues, as allotted.”
I have a friend who has been so frightened of the diagnosis of “diabetes” - that she has refused to return to her doctor to “hear” her results. It’s been two years now; she still is in denial. Now, an undiagnosed diabetic. Living daily-dangerously. A second generational Adventist! Bad habits; bad diet; bad behavior; bad weight; and bad emotional and physical health! But, she listened to this article, as it was read.
One of the beauties of this article is, “take baby steps” - it can be instantious; gradual; or long-term; but, start somewhere!!! Trust in God’s Word! This article was a humble testimony of Dr. Williams’ own struggle. What better way to reach and teach, than to give “a living example” as he did?
He met her just for a few moments. In speaking with her, he advised her the same…start gradually (depending upon the situation). She took those baby steps and overcame that health issue. I shared this article with her and now she believes that - she too - can conquer and change her health.
Bad diet - causes bad illnesses; bad mental and emotional health; bad physical health; resulting in poor spiritual health and rationale…leading to poor decisions, habits and behavior.
Dr. Williams’ article helped her to pull from it, three things to focus on…(1) reduce to, two meals daily; and drinking water when hungry; (2) exercise daily, start small and increase each week, while getting adequate rest; (3) remove sugar and pastas from her diet; she stated - she will start with these three areas!!!
She now walks in the evening and is loosing more weight. She has noticed, clearer thinking, etc., just resulting in these small steps.
I shared this article with members at church, they are now, also hopeful!
Thank you Dr. Williams for your inspirational article in healthy eating; living; continued spiritual guidance and strength! Your personal example is within itself; exemplary!
God almighty, is not accidental in anything; but, instead - “he is precise” in his Grace! “He giveth more grace, as the burdens - grow greater…” “…His powers have no boundaries, known, unto man…”.
God is awesome; sends his prophets; inspires his people to reach “nations”! Dr. Williams, you are God’s servant, continue to save lives - thru your books, writings/articles; by living healthy - by example, and in Temperence!
