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, Lord. I want to embark on a journey with You...that is led by You and depends on Your power. I can do NOTHING on my own! Show me the path that will enable to me to change. Show me, as only You can, what works for me, what is healthy for me. I want to think of this venture in positive terms, Lord--not that I am signing up to be miserable or in want. I want to learn to feed my body what it truly needs when it truly needs...and to feed my soul with the Bread of Life--You!
Today I place my future, my failures, my setbacks, and all of my hopes and plans into your hands. There alone will I find meaning and true success in my life.
