I love this statement, “We were made for more than this”.  We are not made to be ruled by food.  We eat to live, not live to eat.  When we ask for God’s guidance daily, we empower ourselves to take control of our lives.  Ephesians 1:19-20, “that power is like the working of his mighty strength, which he exerted in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms.”  We have the same power that raised Jesus from the dead.  We need to embrace our shortcomings, love ourselves, and find the strength to persevere through prayer.

Discussion questions:  How might God use your journey toward healthy eating as a way to help you get to know Him better?  How do you feel after you give in to an unhealthy craving?
