God created our bodies to need fuel. Every part of our bodies are carefully crafted and designed for assimilating the nutrients we need each day, and I think that snacking has helped me appreciate that even more. I often took for granted that my body needed that snacking. I felt guilty snacking, because I thought I was ‘out of control.’
I took my body for granted before I struggled with an eating disorder. For years my body was the center of my life. Yet, as God so mercifully shifted my focus, I began to realize just how much God takes care of us and our bodies and how much we don’t realize it.
I used to be afraid of snacking. I thought, if I ate in between meals, I would get ‘fat.’ I thought I would go out of control and eat too much.
