The Pudding Thief-

1 John 2:1 My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:

My overeating goes way back. I remember being about seven and looking from the front porch into the kitchen and seeing a big bowl of butterscotch pudding sitting on the table to cool. Looking around and seeing no one around, I snuck into the kitchen to see if I could skim some off the top.

I felt so sly, gently grazing the top of the pudding with my pudgy little finger, so no one would be the wiser. Boy, was I wrong! Somehow, someone saw me and pointed out my indiscretion. As is understandable, I had a consequence for my actions. What I didn't understand is that they threw the whole bowl of butterscotch pudding out. All I could think of, with the mind of a young overeater, was that if I had known they were going to throw the pudding out, I would have eaten lots more of that yummy pudding, which would have made my consequence much more worthwhile.

Food has been one of my major vices since I was very young. I didn't realize then that it worked a subtle wedge in my relationship with God, my family, and my self-esteem. Jesus has since shown me that He can cure me from all of this if I turn all my food, my body, eating, and control over to Him on a daily basis, praying for this each and every time I eat anything.  My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: 1 John 2:1

Since I have used this Bible passage as an example of how God has positively influenced my overeating, this does not necessarily reflect the whole meaning of the verse.
