They were hot, deep fried homemade doughnuts and I just could not get enough of them. I would lift one to my mouth and just at the touch of my wet tongue they would start to dissolve! My mom has a special recipe for homemade doughnuts that just tears up my central nervous system and works the two largest muscles in my body, my tongue & my GUT! She can take a can of biscuits roll them out, place a little whole in the middle and then deep fry them in that hot grease and they come out crispy and I’m like a kid at Christmas as I watch them just lie there cooling, awaiting for the next step. For fun we fill up bags of X10 powdered sugar & my little girl Macy and I dance while shaking the little round delicacies up & down in a storage bag. At that moment I could care less that the average doughnut has over 200 calories and I could care even less that I have been screaming at the scales for months now! I just can’t get enough. I feel no conviction as I am eating those hot, delicious, mouthwatering doughnuts with a glass of cold milk….. well glory, I better stop!
You know that is where I want to be with my relationship with Jesus. As long as I have breath, I want a life that hungers for God! Friends I don’t want to simply desire him, but I want to crave HIM and his word. I have spent too much of my life pursuing things of the world and I do not want to settle for the “junk” offered by Satan that is displeasing and unsatisfying for your spiritual appetite! I want to know God more, I want to love him more, I want to seek him, pray & read his word. I crave for HIS presence in my life.
