My friend Susan suggests a better way to keep cookies. Put them in containers in the freezer and label them 'LIVER'! What a great idea!! Teenagers will not touch them, but that won't keep us from eating them, will it?
In my previously overdone binging life, I used to eat a lot of frozen food only because I’d already eaten all the thawed stuff.
Butter tarts never really freeze; they just get a little chewy and stick to your teeth, gums and thighs. Cookies are the same and with the advent of the microwave, I was doomed to quick thaw almost anything chocolate.
My binges would feed a small third world country, with leftovers for the island of Hawaii. Thank God for God!! He intervened in my life and helped me choose a more normal life style….How about you?
Oh I am sure you never ate the amounts of food I did, or at least you aren’t admitting it, but I bet you have your sink holes. Ever overdosed on drugs, alcohol, temper, guilt, unfaithfulness, sports or entertainment packages? Ha! I thought so.
Have you discovered for yourself that God tastes better than frozen butter tarts or what ever it is that you’ve marked ‘LIVER?’ You see, eventually containers get opened. Light gets in. Truth gets out.
Proverbs 12:17- An honest witness tells the truth, but a false witness tells lies.
3 John 1:4-I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth.
Prayer: Father God, forgive us for the lies we tell to ourselves and others every single day. Guide us into a life of complete truth. In Christ’s name. Amen
