Made to Crave – Week 1 {The Journey Begins} — 14 Comments

  1. My word for 2012 is healthy.  It’s always amazes me that God guides me to posts I need to read.  I have this book but haven’t started it yet.  I will enjoy following you through the book.

  2. Barbie, I started on January 1st challenging myself to make changes.  Over the past 9 months during intense pain and restrictions from exercise, I put back on 18 lbs. I had already lost. How?  By eating for comfort, solace, a hiding place and much more from my past.  Like you, I need to make that commitment and ask God to place that desire in me.  I’m going to dig out my Made to Crave book and start at the beginning and hopefully catch up with you all.  It helps reading what you’ve shared.  God bless you for that!

  3. my favorite quote you shared was : “and what we’re craving will always depend on whatever we’re consuming.”  wow, that is so applicable to all areas of life… we wonder why we don’t have a constant burning desire for God, but we are so full from everything else we consume.  good stuff to meditate on.

  4. Yes, yes, yes, and  HUGE amen . . . change is hard! I’m really noticing in this year. Trying to stay focused but that sneaky ole flesh creeps up and gets me before I know it. I will conquer because I worship the Conqueror of all! Blessings friend.

  5. Thank you, Barbie, for challenging me. I began my healthy journey last year and made great strides. But I’m realizing I never fully placed this struggle at the Lord’s feet. I kept the control over it. I know I won’t fully conquer this until I give it to God fully. I think I’ve been afraid at how much He would want me to give up or do. . . . *sigh* 
    Will be pondering and praying about this. thank you!

    • Nikki, I totally get that.  I think I am afraid what may be asked of me if I surrender this completely to Him. But there really is no other way.  May you find rest and peace as He leads you through your journey to be healthy.

    • Kerri, I know how hard of a journey this is. It seems like it will take forever. But I know that with God, all things are possible!  Bless you my friend!
