What did I learn behind the walls of that little counseling office in Memphis years ago? Were we overweight due to the wrong food? No. I learned that the problem was that we were in love with food—deeply in love. And there is only one love that has a stronger magnetic pull than the love of food—and it is the love of God. Cutting the food in half and eating only when you are hungry do not change your devotion. You need to transfer your love to the Savior who deserves your love.
If you have covered your doorposts with the blood of Christ, I pray that you will never, ever find your heart stuck between the mortars of the pyramids. I pray that you will never find your heart sinking deep into the middle of the Red Sea, teetering between the love of food and the love of God. I pray that you will find your heart in the center of the Exodus, following God Almighty out of Egypt.
