Food is one of my weaknesses. I love food, and ever since I quit smoking, it seems food has replaced that vice!!! For about 5 years now I have battled with food. It has dawned on me….I, me – myself, have battled food alone. Oh I have a great group that is so supportive and I have no doubt if we all lived within the same area, we would accomplish our weight lose goals!!
Since I quit smoking & got dentures, it seems I battle with food on a daily basis. I often fear that deadly sin…gluttony.
- Proverbs 25:16 “If you have found honey, eat only enough for you, lest you have your fill of it and vomit.”
- Psalm 78:18 “They tested God in their heart by demanding the food they craved.”
I realized months and months ago, I hover right around food addiction. Whereas most people stop when full, I will continue on. I eat just to eat…Not because I am hungry, not because my body needs nourishment, I eat simply because it is there…
Guess it’s time to hand this one over to God as well. It’s clear after 5 years of my food battle that I simply cannot do this on my own…Yes yet another thing I held onto and I thought I could do on my own…
Time to let it go and give it to God
