Looking for something, anything, other than You, Jesus.

Thank You, Lord, for the work of Your Spirit in our lives, convicting us at times, of our pursuit of meaningful, rewarding living apart from You, exposing to ourselves, our foolishness, stupidity, idolatry. Thank You that no matter how much our flesh has tried, over and over and over, it has never EVER found any accomplishment, any success, any possession, any relationship, that compares to living and working out of communion with You, dependent on You, dead to our flesh, curious/expectant to see what You do NEXT, in us, others, circumstances.

And when we DO pray to You, it’s typically because we want You to DO something for us, or someone we love. Seems so holy, but truth is, we’re just USING You to get what our flesh is convinced is best, will make us/others happIEST. Thank You, that the nicest, sweetest, kindest thing you ever do for us, is to open our eyes afresh to see how self-absorbed — how INdependent, we really are.
