I want to stop focusing in on the mess in my head. I want to remember my place as a child of God. And I want to pray better prayers and believe for bigger things. I barely even consume two so this will definitely be a stretch for me. But hey, I have to start being better disciplined in this area sometime soon. I want to be so clear with my intentions on posting this. I don't tell people how to live.

I don't have any interest in trying to improve your life in 60 days. I just want to be very honest in saying that I, personally, am really hungry to get healthier and treat myself better. I am hungry for balance. I am hungry for a life that knows the distinction between work and friends. I want to figure out where my A-game is, not just in business or writing but in the everyday folds of this thang called life. I want to feel like I've sunk my heels deep into a life I know I want.
I am also super aware of the fact that when I try to go on journeys on my own, I often fail. And I beat myself up when it was never supposed to be about that to begin with. This little journey of mine has nothing to do with measuring success. It has to do with trying to change something in 60 days, as I reach one of the most important deadlines of my young adult years, that will change my life for the rest of it.
I can dig that. I can work for that. I can not be afraid to say I want that. So you can be in or you can choose to be not in. You can set 6 goals or you can set 2. For me, social media won't be on til 6pm. For others, it might be time to shut off at 6pm. You can make it look however you want.
The goal is to celebrate change and progress instead of just thinking my life will magically change at the stroke of midnight in one month from now. I am ecstatic about I am all sorts of over-the-moon for what progress was made. I want to spend this December being dang proud of what has gone down in the last year.

I tried connecting with friends at church on this issue, and didn't have success, but I kept trying and eventually connected with a wonderful Overeaters Anonymous group applying the 12 steps with the God of the Bible as our higher power. I am not sure if could have applied what I learned in Made to Crave on my own; I needed the accountability, encouragement and feedback from face-to-face meetings with other people who understood my weaknesses and struggled with it themselves.
But back to the book: Several of the devotionals in Made to Crave address this problem too: Then Jesus said to them: Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me.

I want this kind of all-out pursuit with God. I think part of what it means is breaking old habits to create space in my heart for new growth. In reality, God desires our sacrifice — our turning from selfish ways — not for His benefit, but for ours. For instance, I stopped watching TV for season. Why would I want to soak in deeply the entertainment of this world and not things that breathe life back into me? I broke the old habit of watching TV and created space in my heart for new growth.
I used to wake up eager to tune into the world. So I broke the old habit and created space in my heart for new growth. Tyes, I want to maintain my weight loss. But this journey is so much more than just that. It really is about learning to tell myself no and learned to make wiser choices daily. Am I saying all my Jesus girlfriends need to do the same? No more TV, no more checking your computer and phone first thing in the morning? They were personal practices for my own benefit. Do what He tells you.

We all have them, we fill our needs with food, we emo After the success of Made to Crave, Lysa TerKeurst has returned with new insights, as well as some favorites in a 60 Day devotional to help aid people on their weight loss journey.

All opinions are my own. Feb 16, Kalena rated it really liked it Shelves: In this devotional, the author seeks to address food, weight, and God issues. While I am fond of Ms.
TerKeurst, there are just some things that did not resonate with me because that just wasn't where I was at or may never be, like her growing up in the South when I am from the West --not a big deal. There was still a lot I took away from this book--my favorite things include sticking to scripture and lessons from the Bible and the short prayers really did sum up things nicely and gave me uplifting words to keep in mind throughout the day. Also, I admit that I did not read Made to Crave: Satisfying Your Deepest Desire with God, Not Food prior to this devotional, so I cannot comment on possible repetition or worthiness of this devotional as a companion book.

However, I do not feel I need to read the book as the devotional offered, if the author forgives me, easy to digest, bite-size chunks of wisdom. Here's to a mouthful of what is really good for us! Feb 24, Abigail rated it it was ok Shelves: I definitely found this book helpful, and convicting, and I think she did a good job of reminding you of the truth. Not just subjective truth, but the truth of the Bible I sometimes felt like she took one verse of scripture and stretched the interpretation.

I think that the message is applicable to any kind of addictive tendency, that we are made to crave, but if we are placing anything but God at the center of our craving then we will feel the lack!
But I felt like it got a little repetitive by the end. Although maybe that's the point? I mean the whole idea is that you're trying to make long-term changes one day at a time. So I would rate it a 2. Love this devotional I loved reading this book so much, I plan on reading it again and again.

Jan 18, Carlie rated it liked it Shelves: The Made to Crave titles offer the powerful message that our hearts were made to crave God, but that we often turn that craving to food instead applicable to any other addiction and make that the centre of our lives.
This devotional is a watered down version of the complete title. Some devos were good, others, meh.
