Today

Thank you, God, that you allow us to serve you, allow us to praise you, allow us to petition you.  Forgive me for being embarrassed, busy, tired, ungrateful because I am so arrogant -- thinking that I am doing something good, something sacrificial by giving you my time.  Thak you that you are the Giver of time, the Giver of every good and perfect gift.  Thank you that you not only forgive us our trespasses, refine us, call us, welcome our praises, bless us, delight in us, give us the desires of our hearts, know us, sing over us, protect us and give us peace, but you love us enough to have sacrificed your most precious Son just so we -- the arrogant -- can enter your presence, so we -- the filthy -- can be made white as snow, so we -- the incompetent -- can be equipped to serve you, so we -- the unmerited -- can have relationship with you.  And have it not because we have ever desired it, but because YOU DO!

Can I get an AMEN?!
