  1. Hello Karin, what a beautiful reminder. As you shared above, “Too often I go to food for comfort or to celebrate small personal victories – things I should go to God for….” I can relate!!

Only He can comfort me <3

  4. I just love your perspective on Leviticus. It’s so eye-opening. Like you I find myself especially weak when it comes to saying no to food. Slowly God is making me aware of the changes I need to make and this is just more confirmation for me. Thank you for posting 🙂
