Is that your stomach growling or your life?

Matthew 4:4

"People do not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God."

A lot of us are 'spiritually' anorexic.

Do we really think that 1 meal on Sunday morning will sustain us all week?

Stop starving yourself.

We wonder why we are feeling:
depressed,
weak,
unable to handle situations properly,
low energy,
cranky...
the list goes on. 

Those are the same symptoms we experience when we are physically hungry.  Not only is your stomach growling, so are you!

Your spirit needs fuel just like your body does.  There are side effects.  Just like when you go too long in between meals you can get dizzy...spiritually you can start to waver too.  You get weak in your resolve.

You know how 'they' say(I love quoting 'they', they always know sooo much more than 'us' )... 'don't go grocery shopping when you're hungry'.
The reason is, you buy more food because you're starving and everything looks good!  The same holds true when you are spiritually 'starving'...everything looks good!  Even sin!

Now go eat something!  ;O)
