what I don't do

Why is it I do what I don't want to do, and don't do what I want to do?

Tonight I made a beautiful spinach salad to complete our dinner.  I ate my dinner first and then as I reached to get my salad i found myself reaching right past it to the candy jar where I snagged a Snicker Bar.  A MINI Snicker Bar.

This is just a perfect example of the choices I struggle with every day.  I often choose wrong.

Despite clearly understanding the ramifications that bad eating habits have, I still chose wrong.

I promise myself and God over and over that I'll change, that I'll put Him first.  That I'll read His Word more and apply it's truths to my life.  I promise, and promise. 

And yet, I reach right past Him to the bad choice.  Something that seems more tasty, or important, or interesting at the time. 

It's time to stop reaching toward anything but Him.

What are you reaching for?
