Default Eating Disorders - OA for May 2014

You are reading from the book Food for Thought

We Are Insatiable

Those of us who overeat compulsively can never be satisfied with food, no matter how much we eat. As we work the program, we discover (if we had not known it before) that we are insatiable in other areas, too. No amount of anything satisfies us for long; we soon need more.

We are each created with a spiritual longing which is not filled by anything temporal. What St. Augustine said hundreds of years ago - that our hearts are restless until they find their rest in God - is equally true today. Spiritual food is required to satisfy our spiritual hunger. The fruits of this world are good in their proper place, but when we idolize them we sell ourselves short. Created things in and of themselves are not enough; our hearts can accept nothing less than communion with the Creator.
We are children of God, and the things of this world do not fully satisfy us.

May we find our true rest and satisfaction in You.
Some is never enough. When are we going to stop and ask ourselves, when is enough enough. My disease is more, and only through the God of my Understanding and the Twelve Steps, have I been able to stop abusing myself?
