Lord,

I’ve lived a long time and experienced great pain and deep joy, total failure and absolute forgiveness, complete brokenness and miraculous healing, and utter despair and endless hope.

Now I think I’m finally beginning to get it. The things that used to matter so much, really don’t. Fame, acclaim and success are fleeting. Money, possessions and stuff truly do lose their luster. And power, victory and control are just illusions.

Only one thing ultimately matters. So help me leave behind all the unimportant things and embrace the most important thing of all – Your love in Jesus.

 Amen.
