Selfishness is at the root of the world's troubles

My life is not my own . . . do I just understand that today?! When I think of believe my life is my own, I will pursue self interest; worldly desires; recreating with friends, material wants, selfish habits and hobbies, and more. But, my life, if I am honest with myself, was bought at great cost to the lover of my soul, it is NOT my own. I belong to God and in Him is my true fulfillment. Oh yes, the world is truly full of temptation, and the dweeb is prowling around peddling his "sweets". O Lord give me strength and give me wisdom to pursue righteousness for your Name's sake! Now I see that every good thing is a gift from You. And, as I submit to your Will, I receive Heavenly blessings . . . even in the midst of earthly trials.

"Take my life and let it be consecrated unto thee."
