Standing Fast in the Lord Rather Than Fantacizing Over What I’m Going to Eat Next …

For now we live, if ye stand fast in the Lord. 1 Thessalonians 3:8

You would think after having been blessed with an 80+ pound weight loss over 30 years ago, I wouldn't lose my focus on the Lord. Sinful human being that I am, I get caught up in my own world, concerns, etc. and find myself becoming sloppy with my relationship with Christ, which inevitably affects my eating and my body.

When I am turning to Christ in situations of stress, I don’t need great amounts of food to heal my aching heart and self-esteem. He heals and comforts me, despite the trials and tribulations of life. When I find myself starting to fantasize about what I’m going to eat next, I have to re-evaluate my focus. Am I turning to Christ in times of stress or am I starting to focus on food again? Fortunately for me, God brings me to this realization, so that I can stand fast and not drift too far away. For now we live, if ye stand fast in the Lord. 1 Thessalonians 3:8

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.
