A Prayer

"Father GOD,
     I am thankful you are good and you are big and you are love.  And I'm so thankful to be able to spend this time with you in your presence.
     I've confessed it before [but] the habit has not left me -- forgive me for not being content.  Forgive me for indulging in fantasies and ideas like they are better than where I'm at.

"But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night." -- Psalm 1:2
"The One enthroned in heaven laughs; the LORD scoffs at them." -- Psalm 2:4

     Help me to think on your words throughout the day.  Help me to practice your presence.  You are victorious.
     I know it's not true, but sometimes it seems my life is so dull and disastrously boring.  Like the adventure has yet to begin.  But the truth is, I'm living the adventure now.
     I'm afraid that I will never love you half as well as I'd like to.  I so often feel like the 12 apostles -- I just don't get it. 
     And I'm so vain.
     May my life be for your glory.  In Jesus' name I pray, amen."
