Do you ever have cravings, lust or boast in life? Know that the fuel behind these emotional experiences does not flow from your soul’s connection with God but from outside distractions that cause you to forget that you are a spiritual being having a physical experience.
An unbridled desire to satisfy an unfulfilled emotional state of being or compromised self image will often manifest in the following:
Cravings: an intense yearning for something…a desire…a feeling that comes along with an unsatisfied state.
Lust: a self-absorbed desire for a certain thing, person or experience.
Boasting: to speak with exaggeration about yourself in a prideful manner.
Solution to the above unhealthy antics:
When we forget to spend time daily nurturing our relationship with God, along with the things that we will draw unto ourselves at the sunset of this life, we start to wander out into the world to experience quick hits of satisfaction that leave us empty handed and unsatisfied. This unhealthy cycle causes us to crave more of that which can never fully satisfied: recognition, acknowledgment, status and material things.
Increase your experience with God each day by spending time focused on what you value and love most in life…these are the things that are void of the need to define, own, control or possess (exchange of love, watching a sunset, playing, laughing). Life is created for us to experience and grow in our ability to love and be loved.
“Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For everything in the world–the cravings of sinful man, the lust of his eyes and the boasting of what he has and does–comes not from the Father but from the world. The world and its desires pass away, but the man who does the will of God lives forever.” 1 John 2:15-17
Because of His Love,
