Of course, I don’t like it. In fact, I detest it. Yet I can’t deny it because I know it’s true.

It’s the fact that I get so caught up in me that I get in the way of my relationship with, how I deal with others and my compassion for those who are hurting.

So it’s time, Lord, right here and right now for me to step up and put You at the center of every bit of my life. Not to escape real life, be spiritually aloof or to get you to do what I want You to do. But to be so filled with You that I become who You have created me to be, love like You have created me to love and live like You have created me to live.

May Your amazing grace make it so.
