Today, on the 11th of December I reached level 11.
11 in the bible is a powerful number.

E.W. Bullinger says:
The Biblical Meaning of Numbers: The Number 11
“If ten marks the perfection of Divine order, then eleven is an addition to it, subversive of and undoing that order. If twelve is the number which marks the perfection of Divine government, then 11 falls short of it. So that whether we regard it as being 10 + 1, or 12 - 1, it is the that which marks, disorder, disorganization, imperfection, and disintegration.”
*(Many other great scholars and theologians also have come to this conclusion. You will find more on the number 11 and it’s signifignance at the bottom of the blog. It has two **)
I suppose it's fitting that I’m not at my goal,
yet, and also I’m not where or who I was when I first came to this site.
At this time of year it's rather chaotic anyway, (though quite enjoyable) and if you lived through black Friday sales, then you are probably very busy shopping, preparing for Christmas day, and looking forward to the holidays being over!!
All of this has been intensified by not being ABLE to meet my food goal of eating the way I have for the entire 3 months! I didn't go over, I went way under.
Thank GOD for the protein drinks!
I had a choice to make - and I made it. When we were snowed in, I couldn't go to the store. Rather than cheat by eating foods that were not on my list of ' eatable items ' at this time, that MAY HAVE SET ME UP FOR CRAVINGS. I didn't eat enough. I ate things that were on my acceptable list! Sometimes 2 items of the same thing! I have come so far with changing what I eat, when I eat, etc., that I just didn't want to risk desiring foods that I haven't had in over 90 days,
(and don't miss) only because it was my only choice!
Determined not to set myself up for unwanted cravings, I got through it. Due to the change in activity, the baby
was up weird hours, too.
So my SLEEPING HOURS were shifted as a result.
NEEDLESS TO SAY, number 11 applies to my recent life for the past 4-5 days, at least. I mean, I was up at 3 AM
trying to eat more acceptable food to get me over 800 calories!
I've been to the store,
now 3 times,
and I finally got back to eating normal hours yesterday. I slept at a normal TIME and woke up early.
Today I am back on track, and know better how to prepare for winter in OK!
**More about the number 11:
This number is used 18 times in the Old Testament and 6 times in the New Testament according to Strong's Concordance. Each time it shows a level of something not finished yet, or something destroyed and left incomplete.
Today we are awaiting our Lords return.
I speak of His death near His celebrated birthday, because He was born to fulfill a purpose. This purpose was foretold in Isaiah 53 the whole chapter.
Jesus was preordained to die the most shameful death of all, on the cross. Yes, the same cross that He carried to Calvary.
As a result of His death burial and resurrection, we are now on the road to recovery as mankind.
I'm so thankful for a GOD that loved us enough to give HIS own son for me personally and ALL MANKIND!
