Made to Crave

Thousands, if not hundreds of thousands, of women have picked up Lysa TerKeurst's new book, "Made to Crave."  I know I am one of them.  Along with several women from my church I'm involved in an email Bible study on the book.

The first two chapters about wiped me out.  I'll be writing more as I go but I'm not sure how much I'll actually be able to verbalize.  I mean...several things Lysa tosses out in the first two chapters had me wanting to run for my bed and curl up in the fetal position.  Not a good indicator...

One thing I can say right now is I covet your prayers.  My brain is already doing that "throw up a wall & refuse to deal with it" thing that I am oh so incredibly savvy at doing.  I don't want to do that.  Pray God helps me push down the walls & deal with this issue.  There is nothing I want more in my life than to make sure God stands at the forefront of everything.  Abolish every idol and if I didn't think of it that way before, I surely know now - food is an idol of mine. 

Are you reading it?  If not, are you considering it?  What have you heard about it so far?  Very little excites me while frightening me at the same time.  This book does that.  So far...

I think I have perfected that "wall" you're talking about, girl! Reading through the Bible in 90 Days has shown me so much of my sin...it's just awful when you see yourself in the rebellious Israelites! I think I still need some healing from Momma's death.

I have seen Lysa's book around blog land, but I'm still in the middle of reading through the Bible, as well as Serena Woods' book and Ann Voskamp's book, too. I do want to read it, though!
