Midweek Moment: What Do You Crave?

donutsThey 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.

“As a deer pants for streams of water,     so my soul pants for you, O God.”     Psalm 42:1

  1. I bet Jesus would love donuts too! 🙂 They are so good!! Now I want a donut! I like the bismarks, that’s a cream AND jelly filled donut! OH! MY! GOODNESS!

  2. Those homemade donuts remind me of the Zappolis we make . And they really do make me a glutton. 🙂 The little dance you and your daughter do as you powder them up will at least help with getting rid of some of them calories. lol Thanks for the post. Now I need some kind of donut. 🙂
    Happy Holidays.
