Recently I’ve had to change my diet drastically due to my baby boy’s food allergies (I’m a breastfeeding mom) and these changes have left me…wanting.
In the absence of being able to eat whatever, whenever — I’m beginning to realize that food is not only a means to sate my appetite but it inadvertently quiets other appetites.
I’m no expert and claim no scientific proof but we all know that food is a drug; the source, type and quality all affect our bodies, mind and emotion.
Lately without all the extra fillers (food) in my life I am beginning to perceive the robust edges of deep, deep desires in a way that I have not for some time.
We all have things in our lives that mute our yearnings – things that make grabbing a filler seem like a natural first response.
The truth is, nothing should dampen our deepest desires, for when they are pure and persistent, we can trust they are from our Creator and that is something to feel very good about.
Food, work, serial dating, pornography (whatever your filler of choice), may be stealing your desire and muting the voice of your soul.
