Spiritually Anorexic

Based on : 1 John 2: 15-17
From the Recovery Bible, “We are reminded that the more wrapped up in this world and its attractions, the harder it will be to establish spiritual goals for our live. If we feed our desire with what the world offers, we starve ourselves spiritually.”

Everywhere I turn
in this sin-infested world
I see the hollow faces of the spiritually anorexic
a malnutritioned society
that willingly starves their spirits
Feeding on empty pleasures
that bloat their bellies
and steal the soul’s peace

Wide eyes stare back at me
that cannot mask
the fear and trembling
that has overtaken
a vessel made for your
life-giving spirit
yet they turn from their destiny
and stuff themselves
with nonsense
rarely taking time
to chew
the food of the enemy
gluttonous worldly activities
and false knowledge
stands only to continue
the decaying and dwindling
of a heart yearning
for you, dear God

Open their blind eyes
that they may see
the enormous feast
at your table of grace
food- delicacies-
that can nourish their souls
and bring them back
to good spiritual health
and a fat appetite
for your blessed goodness
Amen
