Be My List
I'm much too competitive for my own good.
It can cause problems quite often.
I want to keep everything for myself. I want to win everything, have everything, have all the attention, and enjoy all the perks. I'm so obsessed with myself. My eyes are so off-focus. The LORD is the one who deserves my attention. Not guys. Not friends. Not work. Not my family. Not my swimmers. Not my chores. Not my beauty. Not my concerns. Not my competition. Not my life at all. Everything comes along with looking to the Lord. I shouldn't have prioritIES. I have ONE priority, and His name is Adonai. All the other things in life that are important for life on this earth will come along with my attention to Him. Seek Ye FIRST the Kingdom of God!
I don't want to have a list; I want you to BE my list, Father.
I can't keep owning everything. What the Lord gave me is His always because I gave it back to Him. I need to make a daily sacrifice to give everything to Him.
Bless my heart, Father.
