The problem with me…
Every time I turn around, there I am.
My critical nature, my less than gracious thoughts…
Oh, how I want to be quick to forget about what I see in the mirror,
but even quicker to remember what I see in His Word.

And I ask…
for open eyes, unstopped ears, pliable heart, and ready feet…
Run to the side of my neighbor.
Run to the need of a friend.
Run to the honor of my parents and grandparents…
Stop the cycle of “me.”
That endless cycle.
And then I remember.
Hooray for grace! God’s grace.
The grace that says…
“O Lord, You have searched me and known me.You know my sitting down and my rising up;
You understand my thought afar off. You comprehend my path and my lying down,
And are acquainted with all my ways.”
(Psalm 139:1-3 NKJV)
He knows me! He understands my thoughts! (oh, dear)
He loves me.
Even so. Just as I am.
Me, myself, and I.
“For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb.
I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works,
And that my soul knows very well.”
That is what I want to proclaim!
To everyone I know and those I do not…
That He created them! He made them wonderful and marvelous!
It’s not about me. It never was. It’s all about Him and it always will be.
Yet I know…the problem of “me” will never go away. Not until there is a new “me” in heaven.
The new me with a new name and a focus only on ONE…
I. Cannot. Wait.
