Food is meant for fuel, not to numb our senses, drown our sorrows or reward our efforts. When we choose to allow food to have power over us, we are essentially begging, like an animal, for that said food to satisfy our deepest soul-needs that were never meant to be fixed by food.
Sitting by yourself, in front of that television with a sleeve of crackers and a tub of Betty Crocker's Vanilla Rich & Creamy frosting will not give your soul the peace it is so desperately searching for.
Food, looked to for comfort, will always lie and leave you lonely.
Choose to look at food as
fuel for your body,
feasting for your soul.
Don't confuse the two.
Go to Jesus, and feast at His feet. Only He will bring you the peace and clarity your soul is searching for.
"28 Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls.30 For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light."
