Turning Myself Over

My name is Charlie, and I'm a compulsive overeater.

::Hi, Charlie!::

Another day. Let's see how this one goes. I don't have a whole lot of willpower today, and I guess that's the whole point, right? Hmmm...

So, to surrender one's life and will over to the care of God as one understands God... Easier said than done. Here's the Third Step Prayer, from the AA Big Book, with modernized language:

"God, I offer myself to You--to build with me and to do with me as You will. Relieve me of the bondage of self, that I may better do Your will. Take away my difficulties, that victory over them may bear witness to those I would help of Your Power, Your Love, and Your Way of life. May I do Your will always!"

I love this prayer and I think that's why is so hard for me because I want the victory for me so people can say "wow look at what SHE has done" tsk tsk
