Life is more than food

"For you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body." 1 Corinthians 6:20

I was listening to this song called Beautiful by PRo and a verse in the song said "she eats and it ease the pain." This lyric reminded me of a time when I was younger; I was about 15 years old...
My mom and I were strongly disagreeing to where I was really upset to the point of tears. I hadn't ate dinner yet so when I got out my room to go to the kitchen, my mom began to tell me I couldn't eat; I remember so clearly that I yelled at her saying she wanted to starve me. She replied with no, it wasn't good to eat when your upset because you could get sick.

Well I never understood her and always thought she was just being mean at the time. However, I've realized it wasn't about her being mean, it was about my mom helping me not to become an emotional eater.

As an adult I have never struggled with this issue as an emotional eater that so many women are faced with daily. Even though I am not faced with being an emotional eater, I do struggle with over eating. I have to eat the last bite or if the dessert looks good I have to try it. But I don't really have to.
So how do I deal with this? I must learn to "discipline my body and keep it under control..." (1 Corinthians 9:27) in all areas. But most importantly I must repent and seek God's counsel.

Father God,
I pray that you continue to show me my sins. That I may turn away from them and look towards You and Your perfect Son Jesus. That I will strive to mirror His image not only in my own life but in my marriage. I will shine my light so bright before man that You will be glorified as Matthew 5:16 stated.

In Jesus' Name.

  1. I have this same issue! I over eat. Or if I know that I've had enough I still go back for another plate. My mom always told me that you're supposed to eat to not be hungry, not eat to be full.
