Crazy Kind of Logic

Our help is in the name of the LORD, who made heaven and earth. Psalm 124:8

I don't what going on, but I have gorged myself twice in one month. That's too big to be a coincidence, so I need to be prayerful why. The first time, I overate at a salad bar for lunch and then ate part of a dinner when I already knew I was too full.

This time, I ordered a big nacho salad that was wonderful. I ate half and packed the rest in a to-go box. On the way home, I tried to eat most of the rest, because I had decided the nacho chips would get limp later and wouldn't taste as good. Was this good logic? Yes and No! Yes, the nacho chips would have gotten limp, but I didn't need to eat the rest of it. I made my stomach sick gorging myself on the rest of the nacho salad so it didn't waste.

This is the crazy kind of logic I used to use before I turned my food, my stress, and my eating over to the very capable hands of Christ. What was wrong? Examining everything, I was taking some fiber daily that has sugar added to it. Maybe that extra sugar was bringing up that old way of thinking. Maybe it was the few extra tastes I had done recently when I tasted an oatmeal from a new recipe to see if it taste right. Maybe it was the big bite of cake I had recently at a birthday party. Maybe I'm getting back into the I's and Me's. I've been dealing with control issues a lot recently. Maybe it's all of these, but I'm not certain. What I do know is that Christ healed me of this crazy kind of logic and eating before and He can do it again. I prayed and prayed this morning asking Christ to heal my body, food, and eating, because I can't. I asked Him to be in control, because I have control issues and have difficulty relinquishing it. I prayed for His healing touch in my life, because I know He can make me the Christian He wants me to be. Our help is in the name of the LORD, who made heaven and earth. Psalm 124:8

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.
