Take the chocolate!

Take the Chocolate !!!

I was at the pediatrician a few weeks ago with Jay and I started to feel light headed and panicky. I ran out the door earlier that morning so that we would not be late for his appointment. Unfortunately, I did not eat breakfast. I could feel my sugar dropping.

The nurse walked in and could immediately tell something was off and offered me chocolate to help. I of course turned it down because taking food still gives me a feeling of guilt and shame. Then with such confidence, while still typing on the keyboard she laid the chocolate down and said…

“You know, there’s no shame in admitting you need to eat!!!”

She was right!! There is nothing wrong with me for being hungry.

Not long ago I would have left the chocolate there even if it meant passing out from low blood sugar. This time… I took the chocolate! It was the perfect fix till I could get to something more healthy and sustainable.

There are some of us who need a reminder that it’s ok to eat. Your not abnormal for being hungry. You’re not bad for needing food.

Remember, there is no shame in admitting you need to eat.

Take the chocolate.

“Go, eat your bread with joy, and drink your wine with a merry heart, for God has already approved what you do.” Ecclesiastes 9:7

Howdy! I am passionate about sharing simple God lessons through everyday real life events in my daily life. I’ve been writing since I was 11. What started off as a way to escape or cope with the uncertainty of life, has turned into a calling. I do believe that God has called me to share what He has placed on my heart with all of you! I recently published a children’s book The Chicks Save Easter. You can find it on amazon. https://www.amazon.com/Chicks-Save-Easter-Helena-Rayos/dp/B086Y6K19M I pray God finds you where you are and you allow Him to take you where He has called you to love and serve Him.
