imagesLast Sunday night, our church had its now annual Hamburger Throw Down & Cupcake Wars. I was there and I ate nothing. No hamburgers. No cupcakes. I was proud of myself.

Tonight, I am sitting in my office at the church after hours. Our server has decided to act up and being that it our server, it is difficult to work on during the day when people need it. It is going to require a bunch of reboots and possibly restoring from backups. Stuff that takes a lot of time.

As I sit here, I know for a fact that two whole trays of leftover cupcakes are sitting in the refrigerator in the church kitchen. They are there, and they are calling my name. All I want to do is go in there and eat 10 to 15 of those puppies.

So I figured I would right this post before I talked myself in to eating any and perhaps this would help.

This is the world I live in. I constantly think about food. I love to eat. Yes, I am a food addict.

How will things turn out tonight? Well, only time will tell. But I am feeling pretty strong right now.

  1. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

    As Jesus is in heaven, so am I in this world. Is He a food addict? No!!

    As Jesus is not a food addict in heaven so am I NOT a food addict in this world.1 John 4:17.

    Speak and think God’s Truth, not facts as you know them. If you focus on the facts, transformation cannot take place.
    Phillipians 4:18

    Keep on keeping on keeping your eyes on Him. Do not take them off of Him as Peter did when He was transformed into a water walker. He lost the transformation!!
