There was a time when I asked God to handle only the impossible. How dare I ask someone as busy and important as God to help me with a simple thing like food? After all, this was just a matter of using a little will-power ... of pushing myself back from the table. Or so I
had been told.
As I began to trust my Twelve Step program more and more, I found myself turning over to God the issues which triggered my compulsive eating. It was with great relief that I began to surrender my food and other problems to Him. It was with enormous gratitude that I realized
what a gift it is to finally be able to give up control and put my life in my Higher Power's hands.
ONE DAY AT A TIME . . .
I relinquish control of my food.
I relinquish control of people.
I relinquish control of my life.
