058 Hope is What You Need to Persevere on Your Journey to Food & Body Image Freedom in Christ
Dec 14 2022
058 Hope is What You Need to Persevere on Your Journey to Food & Body Image Freedom in Christ
Over the past 2 episodes, I have emphasized how faith and love are essential in your journey toward food and body image freedom in Christ, so what’s left? Hope…of course! Hope is another critical ingredient for your walk to true freedom in Christ. What is it like to live with an unhealthy or disordered mindset regarding food, eating, weight, and one’s own body? It is distressing! Worse yet, and more importantly, it becomes enslaving. The thoughts and emotions that drive you in these areas can imprison you over time. The emphasis on what, how, why, & when to eat as well as despair over your shape or size cause your eating, dieting, and exercise decisions, but they also leave you with negative emotions. Then these negative emotions drive further decisions, and on and on it goes. You can see that something that should be as natural as eating and enjoying God’s gift of food becomes distorted and becomes quite a tyrant in your life. This can feel hopeless because we feel helpless. So today we are talking all about the HOPE you need and that is available for you! We looked at these Scriptures: What Builds Hope: 1 Peter 1:3; Romans 15:4, 13; Romans 5:3-4; Psalm 119:114; Psalm 71:5; Psalm 33:18; Romans 8:23-25 (also mentioned: 2 Corinthians 4:16-18; Titus 3:7; 1 Thessalonians 5:8; Ephesians 1:18). What Hope Does: Romans 5:5; 1 John 3:3; Psalm 42:11; 1 Peter 1:13; Psalm 62:5; Proverbs 10:28; Psalm 10:28; Psalm 146:5.   Do Your Own Study on the Hope of the Gospel: Romans 4:23-5:21 Here are some helpful resources and important links for you!

057 Why LOVE is What You Need for Your Journey to Food & Body Image Freedom in Christ

057 Why LOVE is What You Need for Your Journey to Food & Body Image Freedom in Christ
There are many worldly tools available for those who find themselves struggling -perhaps even obsessed- with their eating, dieting, weight, and body image. However, these tools can only go so far as a remedy because if you are a Christian, you must look at the issues biblically and these worldly tools do not do that. One of the most foundational issues we must look at right from the beginning of your journey to food and body image freedom in Christ is the issue of love. That might sound a bit odd, but listen to today’s podcast to find out why LOVE is the essential first step to breaking free from this bondage you’ve been living under. Today we look at 4 areas regarding love that need to be addressed, even corrected, for your journey to food and body image freedom in Christ to be thorough and complete. You might be surprised by some of them! Here are some helpful resources and important links for you!

053 Pt 2 - Healthy Eating Should Not Be More Expensive: More Plants are a Win-Win!
If you want to talk about eating both economically and healthfully, you MUST start with a discussion on eating plants. Plants are chock full of nutrients that we need.

This is the second in a 4-part series that shows you how affordable and nutritious eating is likely not out of reach for you, unlike what you may have thought. You will notice the episodes are shorter than normal, and I would love to know if you like this format.

047 Five Spiritual Issues in Emotional Eating and the Gospel of Hope
Continuing with our emotional eating theme once again, we are looking at a deeply impactful but possibly hidden cause for emotional eating. We will look at 5 spiritual issues in emotional eating and then how the gospel message provides true hope for us...even in this area!

042 Overcoming Emotional Eating Pt III: 4 Points for Holding Your Thoughts Captive
We are continuing our podcast series Overcoming Emotional Eating together using a tool I have for you called the Guide Through Emotional Eating. Download your free copy to work through it as I explain the different prompts. You can find it at https://www.cherylszarko.com/emotionaleating/ The most powerful driver of emotional eating, arguably even more so than actual emotions, is our thinking. That’s because thoughts are what lead to emotions. Thoughts are what stress us out. Thoughts cause our fears. Thoughts are our own interpretations of what others do, what is happening around us, and how we look for answers. But thankfully, thoughts can be dealt with effectively, perhaps even more directly than we can deal with emotions. Today we will look closely at 4 points to help us deal with the “thoughts” that ultimately lead to emotional eating and how to hold them captive.

041 Overcoming Emotional Eating Pt II: 4 Steps to Deal with Your Feelings
We are continuing our series Overcoming Emotional Eating with an accompanying tool called the Guide Through Emotional Eating. Download your free copy to work through it with me. You can find it at https://www.cherylszarko.com/emotionaleating/ This is part 2 in our series on overcoming emotional eating. Today we will dig into the emotions part of emotional eating. Emotions do not have to control you in any area, and that includes your eating. It's important that we deal with the emotions that are driving us to reach for food so often and so mindlessly. We are going to break this down into 4 steps so you can start seeing results. A big reason for regularly overeating is that we are not eating due to physical hunger, but for SOMETHING else. And that something else can cover a lot of things. But today, we are going to talk specifically about when feelings or emotions are the true driving force behind wanting to eat.
