Do you ever find yourself in the middle of a busy day, blind with hunger and no plan for lunch? It seems to happen to me way too often, like I should be surprised that I need to eat again. This is nothing new for me, but lately I have been struggling with being able to decide what I want. Big deal, it’s just lunch, right? Small choices like lunch really shouldn’t matter all that much, but when I find myself unable to pinpoint what it is that I desire, I can really get myself into trouble.
When I am tempted to do something that isn’t in my best interest, I need to answer the question, what do I want right now? Most of the time the answer is not what I am being tempted with. I can choose to give in or to be strong and pursue that thing that I truly desire.
Today lunch consisted of three things: eggs, roasted vegetables and feta. I had the vegetables left over from grilling dinner last night, and this is exactly what I wanted today. Love it when that happens.
You oh Lord are my heart’s desire, and I long to worship you.
