Made To Crave: Online Bible Study - Week 1 - Journal
I have to be honest and say that this word is not resonating with me right now. I will have to pray and reflect on this word to see what God has in mind for me.
Psalm 84:2, My soul yearns, even faints, for the courts of the Lord,
my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God.
God, I pray you would guide me in understanding this verse at a deeper level. I pray that you would etch this verse on my heart and that I would be able to fully live out the heart behind the words. In Jesus! Amen
Father God! As I walk into this study, Made to Crave, I am filled with many feelings. Lord, you know my heart. You know my struggles with food and with replacing the craving for YOU with cravings for things that give me physical and TEMPORARY satisfaction. Lord, you have given me such a gift of showing me that ALL these things have and will continue to leave me empty. God, there is nothing and NO ONE that can fill my heart and soul's deepest longings like You can! Help me to grasp that understanding at the heart level. Help me to walk away from all things that pull me away from You. Lord, I pray to be drawn into a deeper, more intimate relationship with you through this journey. Grant me strength to do Your will, and Your will alone. It is in the name of Jesus that I pray! Amen
This week, my goal is to continue the disciplined food plan I have been following, and to attend one of the live M2C sessions.
(I entered into a 'fast' 2 weeks ago, and have not had one urge to binge thus far. I think that one of the reasons God called me into this fast was to change my eating habits. I have been crying out to Him recently to guide me in my eating. I do not believe this to be a coincidence.)
