tonic Tuesday: what are you craving?

I started tonic Tuesdays forgetting that Tuesday is our homeschool co-op day. Thus, the late post.

The question is, What's Really Going on Here?

                             What are you really craving?

What is craving? It is something you long for, that you really want, you might even beg for it!

We were made to crave!
                                       Crave what?

The Lord!
              He created us to be His friend, to spend time with Him, to go to Him with our struggles.

Do you? Do you pray about your food choices? I'm not talking about the 'thank you God for my food, please bless it' prayer. I'm talking about inviting Him to oversee what you be mindful of the nudging of the Holy Spirit when He draws you away from the food your emotions...hormones...frustrations...joys crave.

The success of my journey is dependant on joining together with the God who created me and walking with Him in my food (health!) choices. I do crave Him and I want to HONOR HIM in my eating. It might sound silly, but food is such a struggle for cravings are often a symptom of something bigger ~ deeper. God really is the only one thing that can fill that craving.

So, what are YOU really craving?
