Honesty Day 4

I have half hour to post this before it's tomorrow so it'll be a quick one.

I've already confessed on numerous occasions my struggle with food. So maybe for today's honest confession, I'll be more specific about what foods tend to be a problem…

I finished a bag of Kroger brand tortilla chips with lime with minimal help from Kempton in two days. Twice. (As I was looking for an image of this, I found a coupon for a free bag and got distracted…)

I've been known to finish off at least half of a bag of dark chocolate chips in a day.

I love mountain dew. And pizza. And chocolate. And chips.

I could consume all of the above in one sitting.

Don't even get me started on fatty, creamy dips…


None of these foods are a sin to eat. I believe God has gifted us with the sense of taste to enjoy food! It is in the attitude behind the eating of these delicious foods where the sin resides.

Sometimes I think I'm entitled to eat whatever I want and however much I want…
"I'm stressed, I deserve this." "It's been a long day, this will make me feel better." "It's a special occasion, I'll make better choices tomorrow."

As my daughter quoted to me today (thanks co-op!): Whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. 1 Corinthians 10:31
