Show me YOU!
Friday, August 03, 2012
I want a REAL, authentic, life changeing encounter with God in EVERY area and aspect of my life, including the sparkilicious weight-loss journey that I am on.
The Bible mentions the eyes of our understanding being opened or enlightened, and there is a line in a well-known Christian song that says "open the eyes of my heart Lord I want to see You".
I came across this prayer and have adapted it as my new daily 'affirmation', feel free to pray it with me, as often as you like. And may ou lives be enhanced bit by bit by the Loving, Ever Present Merciful Triune God.
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 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 it. And to feed my soul with the Bread of Life--You!
Today I place my future, my failures, my setbacks, all of my hopes and plans into Your hands. There alone will I find meaning and true success in my life.
