So You Don’t Eat Certain Things?


I didn’t start out as a bulimic. I just thought that if I could control my eating, I would be a better person, more holy even. I cut out one food after another. Constant denial ended up in giant binges and then finally, full-blown bulimia. Eating according to my standards became my morality. In my deceived way of thinking, ‘eating pure’ made me closer to God, while anything else made me sinful

Like bulimia, Orthorexia Nervosa begins with the idea of health, but over time, hardly any foods fit the eater’s high standards and major eating disorders may result. Today, society accepts this constant refusal of all things good as noble eating. We are all deceived.

Eat anything sold in the meat market without raising questions of conscience,for, “The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it.….So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God. (1 Corinthians 10: 25, 26, 31, NIV)

Prayer- Lord, forgive us for refusing your bountiful goodness. May we eat with both grace and thankfulness. For Christ who died that we might enjoy both. Amen

So you thought you knew me???

REVIEW of Meeting Myself by Author Iris Ford

MEETING  MYSELF: SNIPPETS FROM A BINGING AND BULGING MIND

It’s not  often you pick up a book and can’t put it down.  The inner agony here is palpable. You  will feel it as you read. The pace rushes on and you say to yourself, “Oh, what  will she do?”  The author has got  you in her grasp, or maybe it is better to say – her bulimic despair has you up-tight,  especially if you also suffer from the up-chucking that is actually clenching  Brenda in its grip.  Can you get rid  of your despair that way, or any way?  If this is you, hiding in there, then this book will grab you!

Brenda  suffers agony and keeps it all to her ‘self’, upchucking down the pipes of the “white toilet”, trying to get rid of an unpleasant agony from childhood. “White” means pure, right? You read on and get the message: this is a struggle to be  pure.  Only God achieves that and He  does as the book hurries you on.  One senses the tug of war with God and one’s body.  What to eat, or better put: how much NOT  to eat, or even better, HIDE the food where no one else will find it until  later, later, later in unimaginable places.  The struggle goes on, and you read on  and on, sharing her despair and secret.

Finally, the  reader also shares Brenda’s approach to God where she thankfully finds healing  and peace.  But it is not over yet.  God moves slowly as Brenda takes you along her every struggle until God fills  her soul and body with forgiveness and peace. Yes, this is quite a book and if  you know anyone suffering from this affliction do share Brenda’s story.  Here is hope, forgiveness and a loving,  forgiving, healing Saviour. Jesus also knows what a painfully suffering body is  all about as His body took the brunt of all our sin, including  Brenda’s.

Brenda is  openly honest as she “Meets with herself, sharing these Snippets from a Binging  and Bulging Mind”, showing the reader what it feels like to suffer from a  bulimic disposition. Yet Brenda also brings children into the world and shares a  loving relationship with her husband.  How did she do it, you ask?  Well, read on and find out.  You will enjoy this book even if you aren’t bulimic. We all suffer from  some kind of pain, whether in the body or mind – usually in both.
