#94 - Emotional Pain & Over-Eating

Life is 50/50 - aways.

As we go through life, our brain's job is to avoid pain at all cost.

It's very well intended.  It doesn't know the difference between physical danger and negative emotion.

It will avoid our negative emotions with food.

The more we use food as the solution to our negative emotions, we grow our desire for food.

So we try to escape but we actually layer our pain with judgement, shame & guilt when we do this.

Join me in today's episode as we talk about the questions to ask ourselves when we are tempted to eat when we feel bad.

He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.  He determines the number of the stars and calls them each by name.  Great is our Lord and mighty in power; his understanding has no limit.  Psalm 147:3-5.
