It is way too easy to be a Christian on the “outside,” without living like one on the inside. It can be easy to go through the motions–doing the “right” things, saying the “right” things, while You and I are distant. I know that nothing is more important than my relationship with you. Thank you for reminding me of that this weekend.
Please give me the courage to daily pray, “Search me, O God, and know my heart, test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.” And then, Lord, please help me change. Help me daily be the person you have created me to be.
Thank you for this new week. Thank you for the surprises you have ahead of me. Thank you for the challenges that will require me to depend on you.
Thank you, God, for wanting to know me.
