One might read the title of this blog and assume that I am referring to food. When in reality — food is the last thing on my mind. In fact, I yearn for the type of nourishment that fulfills way more than mere physical satisfaction.
There are so many areas in my life where I am starving myself, rather than feeding my mind, body, and spirit what it needs to be successful and happy. The goal list is longer than ever, yet not many things are getting accomplished. I feel as if I know exactly what I want and know exactly what I need to do to get it, BUT my appetite seems to have diminished. Can you relate?
Here’s an example:
We often go through a phase where we are working out and going to the gym at least 3-4 times a week consistently for a month or so…and ultimately feeding our body what it needs. AND THEN…we just stop without any explanation and act like we don’t even know what the gym is anymore…starving our body. Can you relate?
Same goes for any other area in our life…whether it’s work, school, church, etc. You may go through a situation where the hunger is more evident than ever…the drive is THERE.
AND THEN…because you lack patience (and when I say you, I mean me too), you get tired of waiting to see some kind of result and just stop being hungry to accomplish what you set out to do in the first place.
If you are like me, you know that is something way more to life than waking up each morning and doing the same old thing. We each have a God-given purpose to fulfill, BUT we must be HUNGRY. We must desire to accomplish these things and have faith enough to make consistent actions towards them.
With much prayer and meditating on the word, I plan to do just that. Will you join me?
Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.- 2 Timothy 2:15
I want to be hungry again. What about you?
