Worried About Not Being Able to Afford Food for My Family

And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to Me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on Me shall never thirst.                       John 6:35

There was a time where I was worried that I wouldn't be able to afford food for my family. Things were tight financially, so I planned and budgeted, trying to maximize every cent I could. I would buy powdered milk for my family in case we didn’t have enough milk to get through the month. Fortunately, they make powdered milk much tastier than when I was growing up. My children never complained, but I worried lots about our finances. The ironic thing is that the more I worried, the more I ate.

There was a point where God showed me that my worries about my finances were actually saying, in fact, that I didn’t trust God to take care of my family’s needs. I hadn't realized that before. Is that the message I wanted to give my children? Did I want them to think I’m not trusting God to take care of us? I also realize that my worry sets the foundation for how they handle situations as an adult.

When the worry about finances would creep back in, instead of eating, I tried to turn my eating, my food, my stress, and control over to God’s very capable hands. And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to Me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on Me shall never thirst. John 6:35

Since this is an example of the positive influence God has made on my overeating, this may not reflect the whole meaning of the Bible verse.
