I’m sitting in the Charlotte airport thankful that I don’t live in the Northeast. All these storms are wreaking havoc on air travel. I’m good though – just a 2 hour delay and I can use the time to share my adventure.
I was so blessed to be asked to be on the Made to Crave webcast last night. I wish I had some pictures to share but I was way too busy testing out the couch and trying not to throw up or faint. It’s so funny – I’m fine speaking to large groups and sharing my heart, but sitting on that small stage with just a few people was totally different! Totally!
I was okay just chatting but then I would turn to look at the camera and catch the monitor out of the corner of my eye and I just wanted to stop, stare, fix my hair, check my lipstick and announce to all that I look much better standing up! but I stopped myself which is probably good.
If you want to watch the webcast it’s available today at 12noon (EST), 3pm (EST), 8pm (EST) and 10pm (EST). I may watch it, but I’m not sure…. that’s a struggle for me. I’m super critical of how I look – just being honest here!
Being a part of this webcast was not about my looks, it was about being open and honest with this struggle! And it was a blessing to be there – I prayed that some how, some way, God would see fit to use my struggle with weight to His glory. I’m just starting on the path of Made to Crave – I’ve been living this new way for 14 weeks and I’ve lost 12 pounds, but my heart is changing. And that’s what Made to Crave is all about – girls, it’s not a diet plan or an exercise routine. You aren’t going to get 12 meal options and a list of workout plans. Nope. You ARE going to get challenged – heart challenged.
So, if you are thinking about trying this.. I encourage you to pick up the book and open your heart up to what God is showing you.
Maybe food isn’t the think you crave more than God, maybe it’s money, drugs, alcohol or recognition, or maybe you crave time with your friends more than God. Whatever takes your focus from God needs to change – it’s not about the size of my clothes, it’s about the focus on my heart.
You, LORD, keep my lamp burning;
my God turns my darkness into light.
With your help I can advance against a troop;
with my God I can scale a wall. Ps 18:28-29
Girls, turning your craving to God can feel like scaling a wall some days, but God is faithful and He will turn your darkest hour into light when you trust in Him.
girls, whatever your struggle – ask God to help you CRAVE HIM ALONE! He is faithful and He will do it! It’s not easy, but in the words of Lysa TerKeurst “dare to believe that this time will be different.”
I would love to hear your thoughts on Made to Crave!
