God's Word has much to say about modern day problems, and that includes the spectrum of eating disorders. Life-threating problems as a result of disordered eating are at epidemic proportions today. Thankfully, there is real hope and practical help available through Jesus Christ--the only One who offers real solutions to hurting souls. Hunger, whether physical, emotional or otherwise, is an act of God's grace and love toward us. In our own strength, we are often unable to determine the best course of action. God allows us to experience emptiness and longing only to remind us that He has a better plan in mind; one that includes complete joy and pleasure as we glorify and worship Him.
