Obedience requires sacrifice. I say NO to what I want in the moment, trusting that there is a greater reward…knowing that SATISFACTION (which sometimes will be delayed) will meet my soul, even as I refuse to grasp for instant GRATIFICATION.
Today, as I look back over yesterday, I have to say this…no, I must shout it from the rooftops!
How about you? Will you join me today in saying NO to impulses to eat when we aren’t hungry? Will we trust that letting go of our desire for instant gratification will yet bring a deeper satisfaction–a saturation of our souls with God’s complete “enoughness?”
