WOW! Just a few chapters in and I am encouraged, enlightened and feel closer to understanding this mess we call life. Well not all of it just the food part.
I have talked before about food being an addiction and she totally confirms my thoughts in this book.
God gave us the need for cravings but what the world has tought us is to fill those cravings with food. It should be filled with more God time.
I never feel satisfied after eating that cupcake but I feel bad and most times I am sick about the fact I couldn't not have it. If I stopped and prayed and filled that craving with God, I would'nt feel sick afterwards.
In the book she ask this question, "Is it possible we love and rely on food more than we love and rely on God?"
Initial reaction was probably no, mine was, but think about it and be honest with yourself. Where do you turn to when any of the following applies to you:
I challenge anyone reading this to make an effort to replace food with God for the next week when you experience any of these things. Come back and tell me how you feel and if your closer to God for it.
