I blogged recently about weight loss and because I committed this week to losing rest of the baby weight, I also started a devotional to go hand in hand with my eating habits called Made to crave 21 day challenge. You can dl it free from YouVersion Bible app. It is about refocusing your mind and emotions.
I’m on day 2 with the reading called “Overweight physically and Underweight Spiritually.”
Really gets to the core of things. I think we’re naturally wired to be emotional eaters. We eat when we’re happy, sad, stressed, and bored when we should be eating when we’re hungry.
Food is good. Our bodies need good nutritious food for it to function well. We can’t have celebrations without food. But we also can’t wait for those celebrations and events to stop in order for us to maintain a healthy eating lifestyle.
God has created us to crave Him more than anything else. What is one thing that you cannot live without? He asks for the one thing and not because he is mean but because he doesn’t want us to be controlled by anything but rather be in control and have power over chocolate, donuts and cake.
He wants us to run to him when we’re stressed and not to the fridge. He wants to feed us spiritually so we can be powerful.
Made to crave.
I long to satisfy my deepest desire with God, not food. I want to consume food and not be consumed by it.
