Craving God?

The flu bug made an appearance this week at the homestead and happily it has been defeated! On Tuesday, I had to leave work early to pick up J from school. As I driving, I was listening to my favorite Christian Music station and a commercial for Proverbs 31 Ministries was played. The lady was talking about dieting and how difficult it is to lose weight with all the massive cravings you get during it....but then she asked "are we craving God as much as we are craving the junk food?" Well, this just about blew me off the road! Think about it. How many times have you said "Oh, I would just die for a chance to do this or to have that?" It made me think about how much I long to be a SAHM and I had to ask myself am I craving God more than I am craving my desires? I mean, I listen to Christain Music, take my Bible to work, teach my child about Jesus, you know..all the Christain things to do. But is it a craving? If so, is it a craving to want more from Him or for just Him? Am I yearning to learn more about Him or do I do just enough to remain comfortable?

I just picked up Made to Crave: Satisfying Your Deepest Desire with God, Not Food by Lysa TerKeurst to help me learn more. I will let you know how it turns out! :)

Have a blessed day!

  1. Know that feeling/struggle...I find myself thinking about the same thing lately...a lot. When we were going through the adoption process I was constantly, deserately seeking His face to try and understand and know I was on the right path. Needed Him constantly for guidance and to lean on to get through the wait. Now that she's home I find myself feeling a bit too comfortable at times. That scares me now. Is that nuts?? Not really....I felt more at ease leaning on Him for my every breath than I do now. I WANT to crave that need for Him, not just to "get what I want" but to WANT what He wants and to feel content with what He has given me already. I want to feel like I am doing justice to Him....I know I will never measure up but I at least want to feel that I am striving in the right direction. That I am helping others and being His hands and feet. I keep feeling there's more out there and I'm missing something. I pray I'm not ignoring His call!!! Let me know how the book goes, I hear those radio spots too and have heard she is a great inspiration.
