When stress hits, troubles come...We have to LEAN ON GOD not our food.
In some ways this is good...God is everywhere and with us and promises never to leave us. We just have to quiet ourselves in the midst of the storm and call out to him and wait upon him It takes God a bit of time to wade through my fragmented mind that's swirling. It takes him time waiting for my heart rate to return to normal so He can touch it. It would appear...
FOOD IS FASTER!
So, we reach for FOOD instead of our FAITH...and we're ashamed about that. We promise we won't self-medicate or self-comfort. But we return over and over...We've reached for food instead of our faith in God.
This will come up over and over until we redirect ourselves away from the food and back to our faith. I'm here to say it can be done...I promise if you SEEK you will FIND. I know it's hard, but your heart will truly be far more touched by a touch from God than it will from a dose of foodie medicine!
