Looking for love . . .

. . . in all the wrong places.
That was the theme of my life until about 5 years ago.
I have been reading "When Food is Love" by Geneen Roth lately. It's been difficult to read but it's been insightful and has really helped me look at my past and let go of some things that I needed to.
I have spent much of my life looking for approval or acceptance from the wrong people, I've always tried to fit in, instead of allowing myself to be who I am supposed to be. I've been snobby, I've been judgmental and I've paid dearly for it.
Thanks to my relationship with God, the peace I have found there. I know I am forgiven for who I was, I know I am loved in spite of who I was. There is a tremendous freedom in that! It's healing to know that there is one place I can find love without compromising ANYTHING!
I've noticed that since really paying attention to my feelings, to what I've been eating, I've been able to curb some of the random eating I've been doing throughout the day.
One of my favorite verses is Psalm 91:4 "He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart." I'm resting on that one today!!
