An Excerpt from "Made to Crave" An Amazing Book about Food and God

Friday, February 15, 2013

"When I get all caught up in how unfair it is that my friend is skinny and doesn't have to work at it, how she can eat what she wants when she wants, and how much it stinks that I can't be like her, I remind myself that God didn't make me to be her.

You see, He knew even before I was born that I could easily allow food to be an idol in my life, that I would go to food, instead of to Him to fulfill my needs. And in His great wisdom, He created my body so that it would experience the consequences of such a choice, so that I would continually be drawn back into Him arms. ( I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THAT!!!)

He wants me to come to Him for fulfillment, emotional healing, comfort - and if I could go to food for that and never gain an ounce, well then, what would I need God for? (So true and so powerful!)

I love this book! Be blessed today, and I hope this little tid bit blessed you as much as it did me. There is TOTAL FREEDOM found in Christ :D
