I have said it once and I will say it a thousand times. For most of us, eating healthy is more than about food. It is about removing the distractions that stand between us and God. When God tagged me years ago to get my eating habits under control, He wasn’t trying to take away my fun. He was asking me to take a look at a bigger picture. He was saying, “Hey, there is something standing between us and I need you to identify it, own it and remove it.” He was telling me that something held my affections and it wasn’t Him.
How many of you feel that way? That eating healthy is more than about food, at least for you. How many of you have bowed to the image of food and are willing to sacrifice your health to have it, your way? You know, bowing to golden images is more than about statues and other mystic gods that we might think of as false gods. Food can also be a golden image that we bow to and will sacrifice our wellbeing to have it. Daniel 3:1-18, Exodus 20:1-6, John 4:23
Write me and tell me about it. I would love to hear from you.
