How do we get to that point?
The point where we consume sugary treats in place of healthy alternatives? Where we skip the gym and relish the couch?
One pound became five…five became ten…ten became twenty…
They certainly aren’t places we intentionally went or hoped we would go. But there we are and getting out seems impossible.
I guess that’s why Made to Crave is such a wonderful book. A book worth reading and re-reading. Because we all have pits and vices. Things we look towards to satisfy our needs. And more often than not, there is something that rivals with God for our favored attention.
Approval addictions, shopping addictions, internet addictions – you name it – the vast majority of us have something we wish we could stop craving – and crave God in its place. But instead of running to Him we often run from him. Embarrassed about our fleshy behavior.
But it doesn’t have to be this way! We can choose to refuse!
Refuse to allow our hearts to be marred by sinful behavior!
Refuse to sink any further down in the pit!
Refuse to allow embarrassment and shame to keep us from getting help!
Refuse to believe that your sin is more powerful than God’s grace and forgiveness!
Yes sweet sisters it is time to choose to refuse! Refuse to allow sinful behavior or destructive patterns another day of stronghold in your life.
And you don’t have to make these choices for change on your own! You do it with God! He is the one with the power!
And if you choose to sign up for the Proverbs 31 Made to Crave Online Bible study you can choose to refuse with 20,000 other women fighting right alongside you!
