Snacks and Steaks...Mmmmm

I love snacks. I really would rather snack all day than eat a meal. Snacks are great, because you get to eat small protions things you like all day. With meal you have to sit down and eat. You have to figure out what you want, cook it, eat and than clean up. It is a whole to do. With snacks you can just munch. Mmmmm snacks.
Even though I have a genuine love for snacks, I also have a genuine love for steak. If you put a big fat juicy steak in front of me I can out eat almost anyone ( I am serious). When it some to steak I am willing to put in the effort for a good meal.
Now lets make this practical. I have spent the majority of my Christian life in snack mode. I snack on the word. I snack on prayer. I snack on worship. I take a little of this and a little of that whenever I have the time. It is not that I do not love the word or the things of God, I am just not a meal girl.
In the past few weeks I have been feasting on the things of God. My whole life has been surrounded with prayer, worship, and hours in the word. It has been a big fat juicy steak from Heaven. Since I have been feasting i have been growing. The lie that snacking give you is that you are full, but you normally don't have the nutrition needed to grow. I believe for proper growth we must come to a balance. We need snacks and steaks. It is never a bad thing to have a taste of the word whenever you can, but don't let that supplement your big fat feast. In order for growth you need time daily of really diving in the word, figuring out what it is saying, meditating, chewing on it. DO NOT NEGLECT MEAL TIME. Sure have a snack as you run out the door, but set aside time for a daily feast with God.
Now I am very hungry.


  1. thanks. I was laughing so hard. Steaks and snacks... but it is still true

  2. I read this post earlier today and wanted to make a comment on it, but I didn't. Then as I went about the rest of my afternoon and evening, this has been on my mind. What an amazing new perspective you have given me. I am defintely a "snacker" and need to make more time for "feasting." I thank the Lord for giving you these words to share, and thank you for sharing them!
