“What we’re craving will always depend on whatever we’re consuming.” (Made to Crave)
I agree with author Lysa TerKeurst. What your stomach gets, it wants more of. “Can’t eat just one,” is not just a potato chip advertising slogan. It works for cookies, scoops of ice cream, and pieces of bread, too. Which is why I should not have been surprised by my sugar relapse even after being sugar-free for a year.
But it’s also why I work so hard to consume gratitude. Feast on family time. Eat up encouragement.
It’s why I desire to move my body, show others their awesomeness, and experience the fullness of God’s best for me.
It’s why I want to coach women to crave more of the good stuff!!
So… What do YOU crave?
On this Think About It Thursday, here is your assignment:
- What do you crave more of in your life? Do a journal entry, a blog post, meditate on it, make a list. (Quiet? Peace? Exercise? Relationship? Health? Wealth? Intimacy with God?)
- Choose one to focus on for this follow-up question… How can I consume a taste of this in the next 24 hours? (If you crave wealth, you may have to experience saving, so skip Starbucks tomorrow morning and put that $$ in a piggy bank. If you crave exercise, do some! If you crave better relationships, let a kiss linger.)
- DO IT!
- Tell me about it in the comments section below. (If you blog about it, include your link.)
What you consume is what you will crave, so if you want more of something, start consuming it. (And I’m not talking about chips!)
