05 Sep Those Darn M & M’s
It seems that when we get together, chocolate is always on our minds when normally I never think of chocolate.
Well, this time, we decided to fall for the temptation. We walked over to the store, I bought my favorite, dark chocolate M & M’s and I was so looking towards a “real” treat.
The moment I took my first handful, I couldn’t believe it, they tasted really old. Ugggg. Well I decided to eat them anyway and I actually felt sick afterwards.
When I compare this one incident to other decisions in my life, there were some similarities. The thought sounded good, great idea, literally no consequences (at least I thought) and then whammo, my mind is made up and nothing is stopping me now. Only to find out that it made me feel bad (physically, emotionally or spiritually) and I had no one to blame but myself.
We all have those days, those decisions and I think God uses them as training ground. I am not beating myself up over the M & M’s, I am just more aware that I can make better choices and not listen to the voice in my head that says, “go ahead, no problem, satisfy your flesh.”
