THY WILL...or my will?

“Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” (Matthew 6:10)

Lord, I have a lot of trouble with that concept.

Mine runs ahead of Thine.

Give me this or give me that, I pray.

Bless this plan for me, I pray.

It’s the George-centered life, not the God-centered life that I pursue.

It’s not only selfish. It’s incredibly presumptuous that I ask you to follow my lead.

So, I pray again, straining to follow Christ’s example:

Not my will, but thy will. “Thine…not mine.”

Place me on your path, in pursuit of your priorities, through the example of Jesus and the inspiration of your Spirit. Amen.
