I eat everyday. I like pancakes or french toast for breakfast. For lunch...I have lots of choices from McDonald's to peanut butter & jelly. At dinner time, I like italian food the best. Yay pizza! :o) As well, I have the occasional snacks from (my favorites) Snickers to chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream. Mm Mmmm. :o)

As you've probably guessed, I eat a lot. :o) So...why is it when I lay down for sleep at the end of the day I feel so hungry? Simply because from all of the food I ate through the day, none of it was spiritual. My physical body was satisfied for sure. But my spirit was tugging at me saying, "Hey, I wanna eat too! Where's my breakfast? Where's my lunch? Where's my dinner and occasional snack on the side huh?!"

I felt lousy and decided to improve my diet. In the morning, I push myself to pray more and listen for God's instruction throughout the day. Also, I have to push myself to read His Word. I learn so much from the Bible that helps me in my life. At the end of the day, no matter how sleepy I am, I find out taking the time to say 'thank You Jesus for what you've done for me today' fills me on the inside. As I lay down, I go to sleep peacefully, not hungry, knowing I'm not only full physically, but more importantly, spiritually. I guess through this learning experience I know what Jesus meant by saying we can't live by bread alone.

I like the reminder that attending the spiritual needs doesn't come easily - sometimes you do have to pushe yourself! I like food too - the physical and the spiritual!

Eric;
And then, as you take time to read His Word daily, you start hungering for even more of His Word. Blessings to you brother in Christ, and to your endeavors to reach out to others through your composing. Thanks. cyndy
