My husband and I have been on a pretty aggressive diet for about a month now.

I was told that after a few weeks you stop craving sweets and bread. I can tell you that’s not true for everybody. What I wouldn’t give for a piece of bread.

And I’m not sure I’ll ever NOT want sweets, pasta and biscuits. Anyway, there’s a spiritual truth there, too. There are some sins that still tempt me even though I’ve been trying to avoid them for years!

Sanctification is the process of being made more and more like Christ. You and I will struggle with some sins until we see Jesus face to face.

Why won’t our appetites change completely? Because we are still imperfect, and perhaps because the cravings remind us just how much we need Jesus.
