Dear Father God, I thank you for how far you have allowed me to come on my journey to be whole and fit for your glory. Thank you that you have been with me along the way and have allowed me to see my weaknesses. Lord I desire your Holy Spirit to have complete control of my mind feelings and my will. Dear Lord as I have been unable to maintain my own self discipline I ask you to take over, I give to my feelings and mind so that you can overwhelm e with your power to be fit for you,Your surrendered daughter, I ask this in the name of Jesus AMEN.
O.K. God, here I am. I have tried to "contol" my weight. I have tried to "loose" weight. I CAN'T DO IT ALONE. I have been led to this wonderful site. Thank you for guiding me here. Now, I let go and let YOU continue to guide me to make me healthy and at peace with my weight. Help me Lord to call out to you before I make choices and decisions. Help me to feel you here by my side and in my heart. Please guide me through this. For this I pray.
I want to surrender this to God. I'm not sure what that looks like. Can you help me understand? I am asking God to help me surrender my all to Him and hoping that He will guide me. I often hear these phrases tossed around, but I'm not sure how to do that. Any feedback would be helpful. Thanks so much!
Everything you want in life has a price connected to it. There's a price to pay if you want to make things better, a price to pay just for leaving things as they are, a price for everything. -- Harry Browne
Dear Lord, I realize that I am powerless. It is in You that I trust. Everytime I think I am in control I see I get nowhere. I surrender myself to you. Please guide me to walk in your ways. In Jesus name I pray. Amen

I honestly think about this alot. I know I need to do this, surrender all of me to God, But, then that little "doubt" of "fear" comes up and says ,"Fran, you can't do this." so... I don't . I don't let go completely to HIm. I do need help to do this. Thank you Glitter Girl for bringing this up. It is truely a Godwink for me. God is talking to me through YOU!!!.

So we tell others about Christ, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all the wisdom God has given us. We want to present them to God, perfect in their relationship to Christ. ~ Colossians 1:28, NLT
"Physical training is good, but training for godliness is much better, promising benefits in this life and in the life to come." ~ 1 Timothy 4:8, NLT
A little while ago someone on this team wrote about surrendering to God. Just that day I was talking to God. Christmas really did me in,I am still trying to get back on track, I know that I have gained weight. I am still exercising, but still eating (was, not as of now) ice cream, cookies, and candy. God told me that I need to come to him when I need help. Now, trust me I know this, I tell the same thing to people on this team. I do that with everything else. I prayed and trusted God and he healed my eyes, last week. I know that if I get back to where I was before, and start eating even better than I was, I will be a stronger christian, and grow in Christ. But I must totally surrender my mind, body, and soul. Will you join me, lets do it together, why do you want or don't want to surrender your mind, body, and soul to God?
