As well, I would be so honoured if you would hang out for a few minutes, browse through a few posts, and (hopefully) decide to stop by again soon! (In the giveaway post, you can find links to some other posts you may enjoy, as well as a little hint at what's coming up this week.)
In my post yesterday, I forgot to share something special with you. It's so precious, I cannot believe I overlooked it!
Wait for it...
Imagine the suspense-building soundtrack...
I was quoted in Made to Crave! Yes I was!
You may not realize it's me, due to some confusion that resulted in a shortened version of my blog name (which is ET @ Titus2:3-5) being attributed with the quote. But if you know me and read what I write with any regularity, you'll recognize my "voice" in the quote.
So yeah, I'm totally almost famous! ;-)
My friend E. Titus sums up what i am discovering as well:
When I get all caught up in how unfair it is that my friend is skinny and doesn't have to work at it, how she can eat what she wants when she wants, and how much it stinks that I can't be like her, I remind myself that God didn't make me to be her. You see, He knew even before I was born that I could easily allow food to be an idol in my life, that I would go to food, instead of Him, to fulfill my needs. And in His great wisdom, He created my body so that it would experience the consequences of such a choice, so that I would continually be drawn back into His arms. He wants me to come to Him for fulfillment, emotional healing, comfort - and if I could go to food for that and never gain an ounce, well then, what would I need God for?
