I find it interesting that God refers to himself as food, don't you? In today's world we see how the process of man is destroying one of our most common foods, BREAD. As a results people are getting sick from high blood sugar and all sorts of digestive problems. The good news is there are many options we just have to seek the Holy Spirit for guidance in this area.
Below you will read how Jesus is using a natural human idea to convey a spiritual thought. He’s saying to us that what bread (or food) is to the body, the Word of God is to the spirit, or the heart, of man. In John 6:51 "I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world."
Isaiah 55:2 "
Wherefore do ye spend money for [that which is] not bread? and your labor for [that which] satisfies not? Hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye [that which is] good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness."
“Not bread”: This is the “bread of deceit or self-satisfaction” (Prov. 20:17),
In John 6:41 The bread, spoken of here, is that bread which is the flesh of Jesus. Did you know he was the Manna that fell from heaven when the people complained and murmured at God, because he said, I am the bread which came down from heaven."
The natural bread feeds your body of flesh. God's Bread fills your soul and spirit. The very presence of God sets you free from thinking about destructive thoughts. We are taken from focusing only on ourselves to focusing on someone outside of ourselves. By contrast when we eat physical food we are only thinking about satisfying a temporary need and it's our own need.
We do not need to over feed our bodies, we need to over feed our spirit. As we grow in the Holy Spirit we will SEE REAL CHANGE. God will bless you abundantly in ways you could never imagine. Start Growing by consuming the "BREAD OF LIFE" and let God breathe "NEW LIFE" into your bones again!

what causes late night sugar cravings and how to stop them
Hey, let me start by asking you this. So have you ever fallen victim to the most crushing of all cravings? For me it was always, always, yup always the comforting late-night binge. It had to be something sweet, like dark chocolate, ice cream and maybe an ice cream cookie.
Trust me, I’ve been there. Night time eating was my weakest time of day, for years and YEARS. It’s so easy to crave sugary tasty treats at the end of the day. I just wanted to have a little something, and i would basically throw my hands up in the air and promise myself to "start again tomorrow." I would be thinking..."You go girl, you can do your "killer" workout tomorrow to make up for it. But what happens when the same thing happens the very next day?
Here's the thing! All we need is to understand why late-night overeating happens, start taking the steps to set yourself free, and know what to do should those desperate moments ever hit you. Chances are they will for a while again and again.
After doing a great workout, and faithfully eating my gorgeous salads' and taking care of the kids, I just wanted to sit back and relax and enjoy my "goodie-goods". After all eating is fun isn't it? I never found myself stopping in my tracks to ask what is really causing my late night sugar cravings.
So here came the voices. "yum, yum, yum". Oh no, not again, It’s that "monster under my bed, and i can't get him out of my head again." Yup he thinks just like me. Are you kidding me, afraid of the Cookie Monster? Yes, I fear craving that sweet temptation and hearing voices that only seem to come out at night. Not again, I can't stand that pesky voice telling me. "oh common, just have 2 cookies and a nice glass of cold milk." You deserve it! Yum Yum!
Sadly, at night when my mind was tired, i was always so weak and vulnerable. Eating anything after 8 pm is just way too late in the day to go into "burn it off"...mode "but then I would tell myself - yah-yah, but I will sleep like a baby...
So, what causes these late night sugar cravings anyway. UNDERSTAND THIS ~ Our bodies adapt to the amount of energy and the amount of sustenance they’re given. If we don’t get enough of what we need, then gradually our bodies get messed up and everything gets out of balance. If we eat too many calories, we store them as fats. If we consume too much sugar, we become less sensitive to insulin…HERE"S WHAT I EAT TO STOP THOSE NASTY CRAVINGS!
All forms of bad carbs are addictive and not just white refined sugar. Foods that are processed and refined release glucose quickly which cause spikes blood-sugar. When the blood sugar spikes, it then crashes and then your body will CRAVE more. So, when the glucose spikes, know that is a bad thing in more ways than one and Satan is on the hunt to make you sick and depressed! Don't let another night sabotage your efforts!

Hello and welcome!
Bible Study for Weight Loss To Change Negative Thoughts....
This bible verse is from a teaching from the Joyce Meyers battlefield of the mind Bible, "where the mind goes the man follows." I like how she states this truth. Wherever we allow our minds to drift that is the direction we choose to live in. We live in a dark place when we choose to let our minds carry us off by over thinking too much.
If we focus only on negative things of ourselves then will end up living a negative life. We allow ourselves to be STUCK in a place that is less than desirable. We let everything bother us (or we are too quick to only see the BAD and we voice our poor thoughts and opinions to be the center of negative conversation. This is NOT GOOD.
We soon find ourselves losing our joy and we lose our way in life as we choose to see each circumstance as nothing but misery – and it all started with our own thinking. My Mom used to call it, "waking up on the wrong side of the bed". Today everyone is quick to call it, "STRESSED OUT and I've had many of those days.
I like how Joyce Meyers refers to our negative thinking, she calls it “ our stinking think”n”. So to put it another way if we want to live a positive life we learn that our thoughts and our focus become what we think. God wants our minds to be filled with positive beautiful healthy thoughts. The more we focus on those things that God wants us to think about the more readily we can defeat Satan and the unhealthy practice of overeating, junk food eating and binge eating foods that we know will harm us.
So if you found yourself thinking of ice cream, pastries, candy and donuts know that it’s just the devil that wants you and I to fall into temptation to make us get sad and sick. This is a REALLY good example of how mood and food are connected to our faith! This is the "CORE TEACHING" of Conquer Cravings For Christians.
Question is how can you change "misery" to become more of a melody in your heart? The answer is spend time "Soul Searching". In Psalm 77:6 We read, I will remember my song in the night; I will meditate with my heart, and my spirit ponders. Notice some important words here. In the first section (remember my song) I believe the gift of music is extremely powerful. Here's why!
Worship Music is a form of prayer and makes the spirit soar and carries us away from ourselves. When our spirit is being upheld with heavenly thoughts we are being transformed into the likeness of Jesus. This is a state of being humble. Also, music is very repetitive and it only makes sense that by listening to a message repetitively, that, the message will manifest itself in our mind.
The second section states; meditate WITH my heart. Most folks who have no faith claim that meditation is silence or a space between 2 worlds. Meditation is useless if we only practice a state of relaxation. This practice does not allow me to learn, grow and change. In fact, God instructs us to meditate (pray) for that very reason. To Learn of ourselves, to learn of his ways, to trust and to grow from our hardships and challenges and change as he REVEALS truth (wisdom) in our hearts. Without truth there is no change.
Begin your day by inviting worship music and prayer into your life. Remember to SING a song of PRAISE and truth. Take time to write your feelings and pray to ask God to RENEW A RIGHT SPIRT within you.
