Lord, the fact of the matter is I’m so caught up with ‘me’ that I don’t begin with ‘Thee’. I’m not proud of this. In fact, I despise it. Because it is what it is – sin.
Lord, You don’t start with my ‘me-ness’. And You don’t hold my sin against me. Instead, You begin with Your amazing grace. Grace that takes the initiative. Grace that reaches out. Grace that embraces. Grace that forgives, heals and transforms.
Lord, I worship You. I adore You. I praise You. I give You my heart, mind and spirit. And I do as this fully, completely and totally as I humanly can. Today, tomorrow and for all eternity.
Lord, I do all of this in the name, power and assurance of Jesus.
May it be so!
