God and Candy

My pastor had an interesting illustration in church today. He talked about how eating candy before dinner ruins your appetite by masking your real hunger. It gives you a nice sugar high, which you have to crash from later.

In the same way, I fall for the sugary things in this world that don’t actually satisfy. They only mask my true longing for God. Eventually, though, I realize that those thing won’t satisfy me, so what do I do? Oftentimes, I just try eating more of them to make up for the deficit.

About Me

I’m a high school student who seeks understanding. There are so many things in life that I would like to understand, but it’s hard.

  • How can I live a good life?
  • How can I make people like me?
  • How can I draw close to God?
  • What should I do after high school?

I call myself “Surrendered,” but to be surrendered is more of a process than a destination. I’m not perfect by any means, and I struggle a lot. Nevertheless, I place my hope in God, and trust that he will give me the answers.
