Just as I blogged last week, my verse this week comes from reading Lysa TerKeurst’s Made to Crave. The week that I am on with my small group talks about for every trigger in your life, you must match it with a truth. I know I’ve confessed that my relationship with food reminded me of adultery. Although I’ve not nor do I plan to have an adulterous relationship, I’ve seen it unfold and the Holy Spirit unwrapped some revelations with those observations.
Food for me was a calling for short term satisfaction. It promised comfort. I went for it and yes, for a moment, I felt satisfaction.
Then…came the guilt. There was no comfort. I believed and fell for a lie.
A lot of people and things are going to make promises and at first glance, they are going to look like great avenues to explore. My desire is to go to God first. He will show me what is true and what is a deception. That’s the hike I want to go on, the journey I want my life to be about.
No more dead end streets and back alley regrets.
By the way, I’ll be serving up some Wipeout at the Devo Counter tomorrow at the Internet Cafe. Join me, won’t you?
