I believe that Scripture teaches us God’s will for us in all things. Having said that, 1 Corinthians 10:31 (AMP) is my theme: So then, whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of [our great] God.
This time, it’s not to have others admire me, to look good in a swimsuit, to feel better when thin or to have a better self image, no, this time it is for the glory of God.
Dear Lord, I admit that I have come to both love and hate the word “diet”. On the one hand, it represents hope for change, on the other, it’s like a sign flashing “Failure Ahead!”.
I don’t want to embark on another faulty plan but on a journey with you that is led by “Your Power” that depends on Your Strength and is led by Your Holy Sprit. I admit that without you I can do nothing and ask that you show me the path to real change as only you can. Show me what works for me, what is healthy for me. I want to learn to feed my body, Your temple, so that in whatever I eat or drink You get the glory.
Today and everyday I want to learn to feed my body what it truly needs and feed my soul with the Bread of Life.
Today I place my future, my failures, my setbacks, all of my hopes and plans in your hands. There alone will I find meaning and true success in my life.
I pray this also for those who travel this journey with me as well.
