How to heal your heart
A READER ASKS
“Dear Lord, yesterday I lost a big client at work, so I polished off a full bag of chips at my desk. And last week I was declared ‘obese’ at my annual physical, and sucked down a milkshake on the way home. Food soothes me when I’m stressed or down, but I’m always ashamed after I overeat— which means I numb my awful feelings by eating again. Please help me break this destructive cycle!”
Wisdom of the Word
But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. —Paul to the Galatians, 5:16
We understand and yet…
We often rely on food, alcohol and other damaging “fixes” to ease our emotional pain. We know our reliance on them leads to illness but we can’t stop. Please help!
