Walking With Faith / Series #1/ Turning to Food

Tuesday, April 16, 2019

Today I realize I haven't been walking in faith. I have been fighting the same problem for many year now. Where food has become the sustainer of my life emotionally instead of God. Relaying on food to fill me up spiritually. It has become the healer and idol of my life. In those quiet times, and the noise in my busy mind. Taking my emotions from boredom to depression. Mostly trying to quiet my mind of anxiety.

Am I not realizing that food is the medicine for the health of my body? And God should be the sustainer of my spirit. Everything to fill me up is found in the Word of God. That only God can heal my spirit, emotions, and mind. He is the healer and comforter of my soul. In those quiet times and noisy times I need to go to Him for consul.Turning to Him, His Word to stop the noise and anxiety in my head. Every time we find ourselves worrying over something, we need to turn it over to God. For God already knows my every anxiety. For only He can help me relax in life, not food.

Meditation for the day:
Dear Father God help me to strengthen my spirit. To find consel in you filling me up to sustain me. Reading your Word to to quiet my mind. Putting on the armour of God during busy times in my days. So I cast out my problems to you. God, you are the only healer of my life, and sustainer my spirit. Only you can quiet my emotions, and calm down my mind. This I pray to stop mindless eating, in the name of Jesus Christ Amen.

    Many people do the same thing- turn to food during anxiety.
    I do sometimes, but mostly I just haven't broken a lifetime habit of eating the wrong foods.
    I guess as I get older and can't do as many things as I used to do, I just enjoy eating.

    Faith in God to walk in this daily life of hills and valleys is not just a good thing to have- it is necessary. It is survival- it is pleasing him. We are not promised a rose garden when we give our lives to Christ and sometimes I think people expect that when they become a Christian. Jesus tells us to pick up the cross and follow him. He tells us that nothing we go through can be compared to the glory that awaits us with Him one day. So life is not a matter if we will face hardships and trials for we will, but it is how we will go through them for the glory of God and with Him besides us each step of the way.
    One of my favorite verses is "Without faith, it is impossible to please Him, we must believe that he is; he is a rewarder of those that diligently seek him:
    Isaiah 40:10 and the last 3 verses of chapter 39 are worth picking up one's Bible and reading it.

    TAKE ME TO THE KING is so very touching. I had never heard it before.
