Made to Crave – Week 2 {“I’ll Do it Later”} — 9 Comments

  1. this was super vulnerable and i think a great honest blog.  i will start praying the Lord gives you the strength you need.  thanks for really sharing your heart and where you are.

    • Thank you Charis. It’s so hard. I so want this, but I am so weak. Honestly, I just haven’t asked Him to help me. He’s waiting to, but I must ask Him. Today, I subscribed to the Fresh20, healthy organic menu planning. I hope it will help me to get on track. I am going to use the dinner menus to cook just for me this next week and see how it goes. Baby steps!

  2. Read this book and was very impacted and inspired by it.
    Thank you so much for the comment you left on my blog. It was perfect and divinely timed 🙂 

  3. I started a journey to health last week – my issue is self-discipline. There is a history of a lack of self-discipline in my family history – not necessarily with food – and I need to break that history. In the process, my craving for food seems to be diminishing and my craving for God growing:) Probably because I cannot be self-disciplined on my own without His strength!

  4. Thanks for sharing some of your “reasons for putting off getting healthy.” Mine is that it just takes a lot of work, especially for women!! My hubby is on this journey with me. The first week I was so excited because I lost 3 pounds. Then I found out what hubby lost…9 pounds! I wanted to be happy for him, but I found myself thinking, “not fair!” I worked just as hard as he did! I know it’s not supposed to be a competition, but it’s difficult not to compare. I need to instead let it be a motivator for me to keep it up!! I’m gonna work at walking an extra mile each day and burn more calories!!

    In His Lo♥e, Ann

  5. “I will never gain any ground If I am always looking for tomorrow.” Thank you for this great reminder, Barbie! I have been convicted of wasting precious life by always looking ahead instead of savoring the present. I want to live life fully alive – each and every moment 🙂

  6. I understand all of what you’ve said so well.  Tomorrow has just never come along – until eleven days ago.  At that point God gave me the want to I’d waited years to experience.  Now I am genuinely excited that things really are different this time.  And the good part is, I don’t even feel like I’m “dieting” but rather than I am choosing the best for myself and setting a better example for my children.  Praying that God’s grace covers you as you walk this path with Him. 

  7. I am in this same bible study right now.  I am actually leading it and I love it.  I read and did the questions at the end of the book with my friend Donna and then I bought the DVD and participants guide and we found some other women to do it with us.  I love it, but I am still struggling and I feel bad even admitting it.  I don’t really feel like I eat for emotional reasons at all, I just like food, I love the way it tastes and I enjoy cooking.  It has however become something that controls me and I have let it replaced things in my life God should have or it wouldn’t be an issue and it is.   I hope that by the end of this study that I will see the areas that I have let other things have instead of God.  I want to be all that He wants me to be, I want to crave Him with everything thing that I am.
    Praying for you my friend.
    Hugs
    Jill

  8. Hi Barbie, blessings and strength for you on your journey to health and wholeness. I need to lose a few myself. In finding peace by trusting in His will and living life a day at a time (not worrying about tomorrow) spared me the stress and anxiety so no longer do I crave to satisfy myself with food….I crave more for Him. Blessings to you…
