I've Used Everything But You, God

Dear God,

336x280:

I've finally learned how to rely on you for everything in my life and it feels so good. Every morning I look up to heaven and align my body, mind and spirit with you. I give it all up to your will and then I listen and do whatever you tell me to do. Losing those same pounds over and over in my life is something I thought I had control of but I don't. And it is one area I've never thought to pray about because I thought I could do it on my own. Indeed I thought I was doing it just fine. But every time I gain them back I wonder what I'm doing wrong. I know I'm eating too much. But why is it that I do? I've learned patience, kindness, gratitude, generosity, forgiveness, acceptance from you. I've overcome drug addictions with your help. It's a wonder to me that I've never called upon your help for this when it has been my nemesis all my life.
And then I found this forum and I thought, of course, why not, God surely will help me with this if I continually give it up to him all day, everyday as I do in all the other areas of my life.
So.... Starting today, August 25, 2016, I am giving this up to God because I can't do it on my own and I'm tired of the time and energy it takes from my life to deal with it everyday. I'm just tired of it. So please, God, I pray that you give me the strength and the focus and the faith to trust you with this. I don't want to spend my time on earth with such a lowly problem when solving it would free up energy better spent serving you. Amen.
