A slap in the face

21 Jun

It really feels like I’ve gotten one.

I’ve always been horrendously selfish. You know that. It’s something I’m struggling to change, but with Your grace… I can.

Fill my heart with more love.

Fill it with more compassion.

Help me step off this comfortable pedestal of impassivity and apathy.

I want to care for others like Jesus cares for me.

Fill my heart with Your Spirit, that I may be more like You and that out of the overflow of my heart there will be… love.

If I have failed to be what I ought to have been, if I have ever brought anyone down with my words, actions or lack of action, I am truly and deeply sorry. I know I have wronged many people on numerous occasions.  Forgive me.
