Lord,

It’s so easy to make it all about me. And I do, far too often. But every single time I do this I lose perspective because I end up feeling sorry for myself. And entitled. And as if I’m at the center of the universe.

Help me see Your bigger picture today by starting with You. Your love. Your dreams. Your hope. Your plans. And the life You have created me to live.

This is where I want to begin, end and live every day in the strong, strong name of Jesus. 

Amen.
