Each day has enough trouble of its own." Matthew 6:34 NIV

Sacrifice: His and Mine

He humbled himself; I lift myself up.

He purchased my freedom; I choose to remain a captive.

He invites me closer; I claim I do not have time.

He desires to bless; I focus on what is not going as I planned.

He says do not fear; I doubt the possibility of peace.

He loves unconditionally; I put conditions on my affection.

He gave everything for me; I give a small piece to him.

Lord, your sacrifice was immense.
Walk with me in this life of trial and error.

In each situation I find myself in:

Give me your eyes
Guard my tongue
Use my hands
Direct my steps
Help me let go
so your will can be done
