Call Me…

Throughout my life, I’ve called upon God through many of my troubles. Admittedly, some of those troubles have been of my own making, while others have been completely outside of my control. I’ve always thought that it’s a very good thing that God doesn’t distinguish between the troubles that we deserve and those that we don’t deserve.

Call on Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you,
and you will honor me. – Psalm 50:15

“Call me, and we’ll do lunch.”

“Call me when you have a minute to talk.”

“Call me if there’s anything you need.”

For our family and me, from mid-year 2018 through 2019, our faith has been tested through several challenges and tragic events both in our immediate and extended families.

How often do we say these words to a family member a friend, or have heard them ourselves?

“Call me.” Two little words that we offer up quickly, almost without significance. Words that have become so commonplace in our language that we barely give them a second thought.

But when God tells us to call upon Him, He means it. God means for us to call out His name. He longs for us to lean in closer, tell Him our troubles, and bend his ear. Scripture tells us that God stands ready to deliver us from our problems or at least safely deliver us through them.

If you’ve visited my website over the past six months, you might have noticed that things have looked wonky until recently.

The problem occurred during a planned website migration to a new website host.

As a Christian, I’ve known from a very young age that God listens to us when we call upon Him. He has shown that He does listen to my troubles many times. Still, even knowing that all I need to do is call upon God in times of trouble. Sometimes, I forget, thinking I can fix things on my own.

Everyone has difficult years –

Without disclosing the details of all that has happened, I believe in my heart of hearts that everything does happen for a reason, and I’m convinced that what took place with my website was only part of God’s plan to pull me closer to Him, our family, and my purpose.

The Bible tells us that as far as God is concerned, we are all His children. He loves us and wants to help us in any way he can. And, while he doesn’t always choose to fix things in the blink of an eye or the snap of His fingers, we can be assured that He will see us through our troubles to the other side by a smoother path than we would travel without Him. He’s waiting to help us. All we have to do is call.

The problem with my website, although insignificant to anything else that’s happened over the past year and a half, was the proverbial matchstick that broke the camel’s back. It spiraled me into a range of questions and emotions, from anger and frustration to the fear of moving forward.

And then, I prayed.

I called on God, praying for the return of joy in the lives of others in my family and a renewed joy in life for myself. I prayed for our family’s strength to make it through our troubles. I prayed for strength and for God to reveal a path forward. I prayed for God to shine His light on his purpose for me. And, as my prayers unfolded, the more I called upon God for His help in my troubles, I found amazing renewed energy and new confidence in how to move forward past all my problems.

I’m Proud to Announce that GfreeDeliciously is Finally Back!

It’s back with a renewed energy and a purpose better than I’d ever dreamed possible. Just one week short of my six-month goal of being caught up to where I remember my site before that fateful afternoon on July 24, 2019, my site is now back!

Topic: Monday Motivation

After praying about the many facets of GfreeDeliciously and asking for God’s guidance in what to spend my time and energy on, the Lord spoke to my heart, encouraging me to share my faith and His love through some of my writings, contemplations, and thoughts from my journals from over the years.

I’m so excited to offer these thoughts, prayers, and devotions to help inspire your daily Christian life on this new page called Monday Motivation.

In the Prayers & Promises posts, I hope to feature and share my handful of stories and testimonies and the stories and testimonies about people and families that have overcome their gluten-related health battles. Learn what stopped them from enjoying their life, what moved them beyond limiting beliefs, and how faith in God helped them gain confidence and freedom to regain their health and vitality!

I have a handful of selected testimonies that I would love to share, but I would love to hear YOUR story! If God has touched your life regarding health-related issues due to celiac disease, gluten sensitivity, gut and digestion problems, or how He has given you guidance and strength to live a healthy lifestyle for you and your family, I would love to hear it!

If you have a story encouraging others, I ask that you prayerfully consider sharing. You can email me at [email protected], and I will send you more details.

Please note that your testimonies don’t need to relate to G-Free Deliciously. Monday Motivation Prayers & Promises focuses on how God has helped you overcome the challenges of gluten and gut-related health battles.

Later this Spring, site subscribers will have access to a new series called Monday Motivation Devotionals. I hope that they will appear weekly. The devotional readings will help you experience an intimate connection to the heavenly Father with brief thoughts, questions designed to get you thinking, scripture, and prayer. I aim for readers to enhance their spiritual journey through the shared contemporary stories and learn how deeply and tenderly God loves and cares for each of us.

Please know that these stories, thoughts, prayers, and devotions are not meant to pump up or bring praise to myself, my business, or G-Free Deliciously; they are simply a way to encourage and empower others to give glory to God!

Wellness Wednesday (Coming Soon)

Site subscribers will also find a new Wellness Wednesday page with links to my new video chat schedule beginning later this year, video playbacks to recorded and live segments, and links for downloading wellness goodies each month.

My Invitation To You

Before I close, I invite you to join me in praising the name of Jesus and share how He has called you to overcome what you’ve faced with His help. Join me in using your stories to encourage and inspire others in spiritual and physical health. I believe that in doing this, sharing our powerful testimonies, great and mighty things will happen in this world and all around us. The Bible tells us to share what He has done. To exalt His name by singing songs of praise, “Sing to the Lord. For he has done glorious things; let this be known to all the world.” (Isaiah 12:5)

As a final note, please know that I genuinely appreciate it when you share the posts, recipes, and emails from G-Free Deliciously with your family, friends, and others. Thanks so much for sticking with me and spreading the humble messages.

Many thanks to everyone who continues to lift me in their prayers and for daily encouragement. I appreciate all my subscribers, family, friends, and others who have been here for me, called and checked on my family since the beginning, and continue to support my chosen path. You know who you are.

God Bless You!

Hi, I'm Kymberley, the creator of GfreeDeliciously and the Amazing, Glorious Journey Programs. I pray that my work will inspire you to honor your body through God and Good Food from the inside out, all while enjoying your Amazing, Glorious Journey!

Take a peek at the behind GfreeDeliciously

Being creative, cooking, fresh veggies, the violin, decorating for holidays, sewing, hand-quilting, cowgirl boots, country music, fresh herbs in pots, blowing dandelions to the wind, walking barefoot in the grass, hanging out with eclectic interesting people, reading, writing, warm lazy summer days, and yoga!

Gluten, cilantro, mixed vegetables (the frozen kind I grew up with), negativism, rudeness, narcissism, overstaying a welcome,
not helping out, liars, promiscuity, cockiness, know-it-alls, being overly-dramatic, goal-less-ness, poor hygiene, chauvinism, lacking a sense of humor, excessive competitiveness, Laziness, horrifying spellers, people-bashing, criticism and mockery of others and their beliefs, flakiness (because flaky people are really unappealing), more swagger than substance, people who constantly manage others (those folks who think they have all the answers…)

Lambrusco, my iPad, popcorn suppers, dark chocolate, cookbooks, Almond-Rocca, historical romances, sun-bathing, weekend coffee with a good book in bed, PBS cooking shows, romantic comedies, cozy sweaters, fuzzy socks, and fragrant bubble baths with soft music and wine…

Say please and thank you, LAUGH, Pray often, ENCOURAGE others, Be KIND, HONEST, HAPPY, Keep your PROMISES, Be GRATEFUL, Wash your hands, FORGIVE yourself and others, LISTEN, Have FAITH, Be CONFIDENT, Honor your parents, CHERISH your children and grandchildren, TREASURE your family, ABIDE in GOD’s love, Be POLITE, Guard your HEART, SEEK your purpose, FEED your mind, body and soul, Be HOPEFUL, Resist temptation, Lay your burdens down, TRUST your gut, CONNECT with nature, Know that GOD made you perfect just the way you are, SERVE others, LIVE to love, Be COURAGEOUS, Shine bright, OPEN your mind, RESPECT differences, HONOR your inner hunger, SING loud, Be PROUD of who you are, Practice PATIENCE, Never give up, WEATHER the storms of life, Say I love you, LOVE one another

Meet Kymberley [Upson] Pekrul

A professional writer and self-taught Gfree lifestyle expert on [most] gluten-free things, I’ve always loved cooking and creating delicious foods from scratch for myself and those I love.

My journey began when everything I thought I knew about cooking and eating suddenly changed one day when I discovered I was celiac. So, I re-learned how to eat, cook, and navigate through life gluten-free – trusting God and His plan for me.

I live in what’s known as the Holylands of Central Wisconsin. All the recipes you’ll find here are gluten-free and inspired by the people and places I love most. Whenever possible, I cook with seasonal ingredients using whole foods – Making dishes suitable for everyday life and all food lovers gathered at the same table.

Gfree cooking, health, and wellness ARE my life. And this little corner of the internet is where I share what I’ve learned – Where my passion IS to nourish everyday GfreeDeliciously!

Thanks for stopping by!
