I'd say that 90% of the time I am totally selfish. This week I heard one of THE most simple statements ever,
"Instead of praying that God will make everyone else into a better person, start praying that God will help you to love them more."

Anyway, it seems that ever since I heard that I've been in some little spirl where I'm TOTALLY self absorbed and then its like I get hit in the head and I realize just how ME focused I really am... "Who knows what great battle they might be facing." My father said that to me years ago and I am continually reminded of its Truth.

In conclusion, I'm learning more and more ( and MORE) what a work in progress I am, how fallen and deepdownugly I really really am...BUT, at the same time its a GLORIOUSLY wonderful thing that THIS is true:

...being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.~Phil 1:6

THAT is what I'm thankful for today!
