"This wasn't really about the scale or what clothing size I was; it was about the battle that raged within my heart"
Do I have a "battle" raging within my heart? I think the "battle" or "urging" for me was to realize I really needed a "heart relationship" and not just a "head knowledge" of who He is. And like Lysa "I'd make radical changes for the sake of my spiritual health perhaps even more than my physical health." When the spiritual me is in tact, the physical me will follow. What a concept to take that which the enemy can really beat me up with and turn it back to the Lord.
How do you respond to the idea of using your cravings as a prompt to pray?
As Lisha said, "we must eat," we can't just throw away all food so this battle is
a daily process in which we can use this prompting to turn to Him.
This is a key element to this study.
Psalm 5:3 NKJ
My voice you shall hear in the morning, O Lord, in the morning I will direct it to you and I will look up (expectations).
Give God the "firstfruits" of your day. Not the leftovers at the end.
This does not have to be lengthy and may be something new for you,
but give it a try. You may find it sets you up for "success".
Unhealthy cravings? What else do we crave? What else do we seek after to fill the voids in our lives that Jesus would say to us " Let Me"?
I pray your days are filled with thoughts of Him and He will become your greatest craving today.
