During the holidays, it’s nice to enjoy turkey for Thanksgiving and cookies at Christmas. But then New Year’s Day rolls around, and with it comes a reckoning. It’s when many of us begin to regret our lack of restraint over the past few weeks and commit to finally dropping a few pounds.
Today’s episode of the Great Stories podcast features a conversation with New York Times bestselling author of Made to Crave Lysa TerKeurst. Yes, you’ll hear Charles and Lysa talk about food cravings and healthy eating practices. But, unlike other podcasts on the topic, you’ll also hear them discuss how this is a spiritual issue, not a physical one.
Ultimately, this isn’t about what you should and should not be eating. It’s about the idolatry we have surrounding the things we often love a little too much in life. Lysa helps us remember that craving isn’t necessarily a bad thing . . . the challenge is to realize how God created us to crave something so much more than what’s in the pantry.
If you or someone you know is struggling with unhealthy eating practices, this New Year’s episode is for you.
