I need something to eat for my stress level.
Said the lady walking into the cafeteria at work. I’m just as guilty as she is…a busy day at work and I end up with 9 little wrappers. For some reason, joking about how food solves ALL the things is funny because everyone can relate.
Unfortunately, I think we’ve all learned the hard way that stress eating doesn’t solve our problems. We should, however, find enjoyment and pleasure in food, and even celebrate occasions with great feasts! Let’s keep our mindset in check so that our food never replaces the only Satisfier, Calmer, Comforter of our souls. He is all we need. And then he graciously gives us all the delicious food we can eat to enjoy.
