Spiritual Anorexia

Updated on February 12, 2012

Symptoms of Spiritual Anorexia include: No appetite for the word of God. A distorted self image of yourself- (thinking that you don't need food from the bible). Also thinking that God doesn't care about you. After a while of not having spiritual food when it is around they will leave instead of listen to it.

I just made this all up to make a point. There are some family members that I am praying for. They believe in God and had accepted them as a child. I pray that they will be hungry for the word of God. To many people the word of God is boring. Why? Simple, lack of applying it to their lives.

We have to remember it is not a magic pill. Although the word of God is very powerful. It takes daily application. I hear this from some people I know, "I tried praying and it didn't work", or "I can't seem to read the bible". I kind of understand and I realize it is a personal relationship. So I pray for their relationship with God. That it will be restored, like the way he restored me.

There is healing in his words.

My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh. Proverbs 4:20-22

      Hi Deborrah, We think alike. It is not a magic pill. Thanks for your lovely comment.

      Sky, Wonderful! This is so true! I wrote a hub on “Spiritual Eating Disorders” so this got my attention! The Word of God is our spiritual food! We NEED it to grow spiritually or we can experience “spiritual anorexia!” As you well stated: “We have to remember it is not a magic pill. Although the word of God is very powerful. It takes daily application” Amen!

      It is important that we spend time with the Lord and meditate on His WORD! And yes, actually apply to our own lives whatever we are learning, May HIS Light shine through you brightly!

      Thank You for sharing, In HIS Love, Care, Grace, Joy, Peace & Blessings!
