A Sunday Prayer

Lord,

I’ve realized something. It’s not something new. It’s something I’ve figured out before – seemingly over and over and over again.

But it’s hit me in a new way the past several days. It’s how easily I get distracted from You. And how even more easily I make it all so much about me that I have nothing left for You. Not my heart, hands, words, time, energy or money.

So help me turn me upside down and focus on You. On Your reality. Your unconditional love. Your passion for reaching out to me. Your vision for the world. Your purpose for my life. Your joy that comes as a gift. And Your hope that keeps growing and growing.

Yes, Lord, help me start with You. And, then, help me live for You. Today, tomorrow and forever more.

Amen.
