Does Self Get In The Way!

I heard this statement yesterday, “God, help me to be willing to be willing”. I thought to myself I always want to do Gods will. However, As I meditated over this simple phrase, I recognized that was not always the case. How many attempts do I try to do things Karen’s way before I ask for God’s Will to be done. I realized more times than I want to admit. Dear Lord, Forgive me for not letting you be the first responder in my life. Please empty me of my pride, self-righteousness, and self-sufficiency. Teach me O Lord, to come to you first in every aspect of my life no matter how big or small. You said, “Ask and it will be given, Seek and you will find, knock and the door will be open.” Thank you Lord for answering my prayer. Amen
