It's All About You
Father, I am fresh out of profundity.
I am what I am, but I am not Popeye, so that is not all that I am. I am not all that I have become, but I am also more than I have become and I am all that I am becoming and less.
I am more than I was in spite of the fact that I have lost some of that along the way ... but You never did.
And as confusing as this all seems to me, it make perfect sense to You in Whom all things make sense. So, make me a slate upon Which You can write what needs to be read by those I meet today. You choose the ink, indelible or erasable. I am willing to be or become what You have in mind, to be significant or incidental in the eyes of those who, like myself, are too blind to judge what is or is not significant. This is out of my hands and in Yours.
Teach me whatever in in Your curriculum for me today and I will seek to learn it.
Thank You for another opportunity to fail and succeed and move forward either way. I lay before You this, my feeble prayer of humble consecration and utter confusion with deep clarity of soul and peace of mind and heart.
I know that You have forgiven me all and given me all and that my confidence in all things is in You.
So I commit my family, my church, my friends, my hopes, my dreams, my strengths, my weaknesses, and all that I am and have to You today.
That alone, makes perfect sense to me, My God and King, My Lord, My All, in Jesus' Name. Amen.
And forgive this prayer about me when I know fully well that it is all about You.
