Get Your Cravings in Check

What are you craving?

I’m definitely not pregnant anymore but I still have cravings every now and then like I did while I was pregnant. Like I REALLY want some smothered chicken, rice and gravy, greens and black-eyed peas from Busy Bee by my school right now! 😫

But sigh, I’m not driving 4 hours just for food.

But as I was thinking about this, I heard God tell me to think about this and share. I don’t really eat rich soul food like this anymore, at least not regularly. It’s not healthy and honestly I wouldn’t be too productive. This is also directly in line with our fleshly cravings that are not pleasing to God. You think about whatever your "craving" is and how fun it would be or how good it would feel to do it for old times sake. But the truth is that it is not healthy nor is it conducive for your growth. It’s not healthy to nurture destructive relationships. It’s not healthy to give in to your cravings all the time because before long you’ll end up back where you’ve been delivered from. No I’m not telling you to not enjoy your life, but be mindful of how you do that. Everything that is acceptable is not good for you.

Then God brought to mind the importance of countering these cravings with truth. That’s why we have to renew our minds. It’s essential to living a victorious life!!! If you don’t have the truth to counter the lies with, you’ll believe the lies every time and remain unchanged.
