Many of you may remember reading my post about my new eating regimen. A dear friend at church put me onto a book called Eat To Live by Dr. Joel Fuhrman. My friend lost more than 60 pounds in less than six months. I’ve lost 16 since July 1.
I eat yogurt every day now, but only the kind with active, live cultures. I researched active, live cultures. My research led me to be amazed again at how awesome our God is.
Two of the active, live cultures in my yogurt are Lactobacillus bulgaricus and Streptococcus thermophilus. They are good bacteria called probiotics that help us regulate proper intestinal functions and digestion for us.
Here’s an amazing thing to me. To be healthy beneficial yogurt, each gram of yogurt must contain 100 million (100,000,000) of these little guys. A gram of yogurt is about one teaspoon. If that doesn’t amaze you, consider this . . .
Whether it’s fitting 100 million microorganisms into a teaspoon of yogurt, or speaking a universe into existence so massive that a satellite can take a picture of Earth from 3.7 Trillion miles away, you have to marvel at the power and majesty and creativity of our Almighty God.
