Made To Crave

Last night I participated in a small group study on this book. I have high hopes for this book and study leading to big changes in my life. Made To Crave was written by Lysa Terkeurst, President of Proverbs 31 Ministries.  In this book Lysa points out that intense cravings for food can actually be sinful and she works to provide biblical application for overcoming these addictions.

It brought me such joy to come together in God's name with a group of ladies to support and encourage one another with an issue that we each struggle with minute by minute, day by day. After listening to the first session of Made To Crave, I realized that often, when working to produce good fruits, I conveniently forget that one of the fruits of the Spirit is self-control. I hadn't realized that all this time I was in a spiritual war, wrestling with my fleshly desires for food, needing self-control! It was such a revelation to me.

There are 5 more sessions left in this study and I am eagerly awaiting each of them. I will continue to  write about each of these sessions and the book as time progresses. In the meantime, if you have often been in your own spiritual battle for self-control, longing to be filled with something but not realizing that something is the Lord alone, I absolutely recommend this book. You can check it out HERE.

Until next time, may Christ's love and blessings be upon you and yours!
