A couple of days ago my husband and I went to Walgreen's to pick up some stuff. We walked around the store, gathered the items we needed, and proceeded to the checkout counter to purchase them. There was one person in front of us so we were waiting patiently in line. All of a sudden something caught my eye... There it was... And it had my full undivided attention as I stared at it.  The object that I was infatuated with in that moment was nothing less than a peanut butter snickers bar. Have you ever sunk your teeth into that goodness?!?!?!?! I had one during Halloween and it was amazing.
It was finally out turn to checkout so my husband laid out basket on the counter. As he unloaded the items from the basket, the lady behind the register started scanning our items and put them in bags. A sense of panic entered my mind as I looked at the peanut butter snickers and then at the items going in the bags. I grabbed the candy before she got done scanning our items and laid it on the counter and then acted like nothing happened. My husband put the bags in the backseat when we got to the car. While we were driving I was dreaming about that snickers bar the whole time. Once we got to our destination I dug through the bag and found the candy bar that I had been dreaming about. I held it in my hands and stared at it. I am not a fan of forbidding foods from myself but at the same time I can't let myself eat the whole thing. In that moment my husband passed me and said, "I didn't realize you got candy..."
I asked him if he would like to share it and he said yes- sweet action! My problem was solved! Before I sank my teeth into the goodness of that snickers I asked God to help me find satisfaction with half of that candy bar. And guess what?!?! After I ate half of that delicious candy bar... I was pretty content! It the small accomplishments like this that lead to meeting the big goal of living a healthy lifestyle and glorifying Christ in the process!
