Eating disorders don’t like trips. They don’t. They like ‘routine.’ They like being kept in where you know it’s comfortable, but I’m learning that God, like a loving Father, LOVES for His children to learn to trust Him, and not themselves. And He will use many ways to do that, including travel.
These words from Proverbs 3:5-7 really have come home to me every time I go off on a vacation and all the restrictive and obsessive thoughts threaten to rush back in with a vengeance.
‘Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Lord, and depart from evil.’
It’s good to get out of your routine, to find things that make you learn to trust. Why?
