I'm so stinkin' excited! I've been asked to participate in a 21-day journey, beginning today. A group of us are reading, studying, and prayerfully living out the principles taught in Made to Crave, the new book by Proverbs 31 President, Lysa TerKeurst! Blog friends, I believe with every ounce of sincerity and faith I can muster that this book is going to be a life-changer. Not another book that elicits a little temporary glee and short-term lifestyle change but something much deeper for those really wanting to change. The overwhelming support for the book has already been very exciting to see. Additionally, there are a wealth of resources to help with the journey on the Made to Crave website, including a live webcast teaching by Lysa at 8:00 pm EST tonight!
For me personally, this book has been helping me discover my "want to" in healthy eating and weight loss. I know how to eat properly. I know how to exercise. I know how to drink lots of water and take vitamins. I've studied nutrition so much, that I'm just waiting on someone to award me an honorary degree. While all of these things are good and generally honorable and virtually necessary when attempting to lose weight or get into shape, they are simply powerless without a "want to". However, Made to Crave is not talking about the shallow, short lasting desires to get into your thin jeans or show up skinny at your class reunion. It's not even talking about your desire to finally have a normal cholesterol exam. This is much, much deeper than that. We're all made to crave something...and that craving must be met by God, and God alone.
I'll post again at the end of the 21-day journey (and maybe sometime in between) to let you know how God ends up using these 3 weeks! I anticipate glory stories in the making!
Have a blessed day!
