No "Holy Grail" for weight loss.
There have been times in my life that I have stood in the grocery aisle, or health-food store, looking for answers. You might know that aisle too. It's the one with the brightly colored packages of bars, powders, and pills that supposedly offer quick weight loss. As I held a product and read its promise that fat would melt off my frame, a sense of comfort and control came over me. I declared that I had the "Holy Grail," and I would lose the weight and keep it off this time. Then, a month or so later, I threw it in the trash after the product didn't give me the results I desired. Discouraged yet still hoping to find "the product," I returned to the aisle again. I was like a person trying to find clean water in a muddy puddle. I had placed these products on a pedestal, and instead of trusting in God to help me lose weight, I trusted in these foods, pills, and powders.
There is no "Holy Grail" for weight loss, yet I'm not powerless. I have God, and He guides me to the foods that best fuel my body.
