The Peaches Threw Me for a Loop

I rejoice at Thy Word, as one that findeth great spoil. Pslam 119:162

We went to a breakfast buffet with some family. I was trying to be healthy, but I wanted some of the chopped nuts. I decided to get some of the sliced peaches with some cottage cheese. Then, I covered the top with chopped nuts. Yes, I over did it in the nut department, but that's not the worst of it.

We were driving home and I kept craving sweets. Since I rarely eat anything with sugar, because of my Hypoglycemia, I don't crave sweets often. I kept having thoughts about pie ala mode. My husband had gotten some on a recent family outing. There was so much ice cream, I, of course, had to help him out with it. The thing is, that was about a month ago, so why was I craving sweets now?

In the midst of my trying to figure out if we had anything sweet in the car, I tried to be prayerful about why I had this strong craving. I went through all the things I had eaten during the day and most things were pretty healthy. Then, Christ showed me what threw me for a loop. It was the peaches I had eaten at the breakfast buffet. Pondering this, I realized that the peaches must have been in a heavy syrup. At home, I only buy them in 100% fruit juice and didn't think about how the peaches would affect me. I prayed about God taking over my craving, so I could stop pestering my husband about wanting something sweet. Shortly thereafter, I decided to eat an apple. God had answered my prayers and I was no longer craving sweets, but I haven't had such a strong craving in years. This experience makes me mindful that turning to Christ with this gave me something much more significant than the great spoil (treasure) I had wanted. He showed me that He is there beside me whenever I make poor choices in my life and I can always count on Him!!!

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.
