Reach Out

John 20:27Then He said to Thomas, “Put your finger here; see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it into my side. Stop doubting and believe (NIV).

A recent magazine article connected the food we eat to our feelings. Whatever we list in in the first or second column, the third column will always be the same.   

Feelings

Food Choice Better Choice
anger hard, crunchy, chewy, tough Jesus
depression sugary sweets Jesus
anxious soft, sweet Jesus
lonely pasta, crackers Jesus
jealous anything Jesus
stress salty Jesus

Jesus is always the better choice. When we reach out to him we won’t need to pick anything else.   

Romans 8:37No, in all things, we are more than conquerors through him who loved us (NIV).

PrayerLord, thank you again, and again, your son Jesus Christ, who died on the cross for us so that we could conquer sin. Amen
