Dear Lord,

It’s so easy to make it all about me. And I do, far too often. Which causes me to lose perspective so that I mostly see my through wants, my pain, my disappointments and my dreams. No wonder I often end up feeling sorry for myself, entitled and as if You are not treating me fairly.

So help me do what I struggle to do – see Your bigger picture as I look at everything through Your love, Your dreams, Your hope, Your plans and how You have created me to live. This is where I long to begin my life. And end. And live every day in-between. Regardless of what’s going on.

I pray this in the name of my Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ – Amen!
