book study: made to crave

Then he told them what they could expect for themselves: “Anyone who intends to come with me has to let me lead. You’re not in the driver’s seat – I am. Don’t run from suffering; embrace it. Follow me and I’ll show you how.” Luke 9:23

When I signed up for this book study, I knew I was ready for a change. I have the poker chip from Recovery to prove it –stashed in my small pouch where I keep my eye drops and lip balm. I needed a place where I’d see it every day. I needed to remember the sense of desperation when I grabbed it for the first time.

There was absolutely no assumption that I’d just entered one of the most difficult and tender seasons of my life. I just wanted to be able to say no to cookies.

((But God…))
