In His Image day 2

Saturday, June 08, 2013

The lesson talked about how Jesus is the one who truly satisfies. in doing this lesson I realized just how controlling my flesh seems to be. I tend to cater to its needs and wants to much. I eat more food not out of hunger but to give my flesh what it wants so that it will in essence shut up. sometimes I take and deny my flesh and not allow it to control me anymore. I am pretty tricky in the fact I undereat 90% of the time and binge eat 10% of the time.

I realize its an effort to control my flesh and keep it in line. no matter whether we eat very little to deny our flesh or eat to much to try to find satisfaction you are left feeling empty and without satisfaction. Satisfaction can only be found in Jesus Christ.

    It's a tough balance. I've found it helpful to think about honouring my body as a way to honour God's creation. So, trying to eat things and do things that I know will help my body to be healthy the way God created it, and be able to be strong and energetic to do His will. Then it becomes less a battle against the "flesh" (though still against cravings at times), and more a battle *for* a restored body.
