I Want Jesus at My Side Not Food...

Luke 17: 15 And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God, 16 And fell down on his face at His feet, giving Him thanks: and he was a Samaritan.

I recently got some lab tests back where something was elevated. After doing enough research on the Internet to make my head spin, I was beside myself. I tried to adopt the healthy changes suggested on the Internet, while I await my next doctor’s visit. Every day, I kept finding myself wanting to nibble. I kept feeling like I needed something crunchy, especially nuts, which is the last thing I needed at the time.

Realizing some old patterns were sneaking back in, I tried to be prayerful about what was happening. Why was I craving foods? Why was I being hungry each day during times it normally wouldn't be an issue? Well, God, who is good about showing me my weaknesses when I let Him, is letting me know that I’m worried about the lab tests.

If I’m worried about this, that means that I’m not trusting God to take care of me, my health, and my needs. I’m reverting back to old patterns of turning to food in times of stress rather than praying for God to take care of me and my health regardless of the outcome.

Knowing that Christ can heal us and eating snack foods can’t, my turning to food isn’t very logical. Isn’t it funny the way that Satan can sneak in with something that can throw our faith for a loop without even realizing it? I have another doctor’s appointment and regardless of the outcome, although probably minor, I want Jesus at my side, not food. Luke 17: 15 And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God, 16 And fell down on his face at His feet, giving Him thanks: and he was a Samaritan.

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.
