To The Sole Arbiter of my life,
Let not the wisdom of the world and the deceiving riches of the earth consume and rob me of the true joy you have in store for me, Lord. Let Your Word transform the work of my hands and purify the desires of my heart. Pursue me, Lord, and make me strong, that I may not give in to my weaknesses. Amidst the conflicting moralities in this ever changing world, give me the courage and the audacity to choose You, my Sole Arbiter.
I need to be able to say 'yes!' to the Lord now, in the smaller things, in order to be prepared to say 'yes!' when I'm asked to do the big tasks!
I'm learning to discover the beauty and peace in accepting my broken state- not because my sin is trivial and insignificant, but because it is so profound, pervasive, destructive and wholly ruinous that only the boundless mercy and grace of God can cover it.
