My relationship with food and fitness hit a spiritual note two years ago when I did a book study called Made to Crave by Lysa TerKeurst. That is where I came face to face with the fact that I turned to food for comfort and support other than for fuel and not to God. I didn't quite grasp the importance of that discovery then. A year later, I was afforded another opportunity to participate in a book study entitled Uncommon Vessels: A Program for Developing Godly Eating Habits by Elyse Fitzpatrick. This study was good as well, but I personally didn't take full advantage of the accountability afforded me at the time.
In 2014, I plan to get to the Source. God is my Creator. He knows me best. He will provide for me the best way to get out of this cycle of over-indulgence and excess. He will be able to instill in me the discipline I need to succeed. He is the Source of strength and endurance that I need to overcome. I can't do this on my own. No product will do it completely. Products can assist in the journey, but they can't cure the problem. Only God is able to do the curing, and I must be willing to do the work. He has already provided the victory. I am not sure what 2014 will bring, but I am sure that whatever I do, it will be for God's glory.
By the way, if we shared Jesus the way we shared the latest trends today, I wonder what would happen? Word of mouth is a powerful tool, share Jesus and see what happens.
For God's Glory,
