I hear myself asking, "Am I treating God as the lowly servant or am I aware that as the lowly servant, I have no rights? That I own nothing except what God is pleased to give me? Am I usurping the role of master and asking God to serve me?"
Each time my thoughts move in that direction, I conclude with, "Forgive me, Lord."
"You are My servant, I have chosen you and not cast you away; fear not for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God."
Master of my life,
remind me of our relationship.
It pleases you when I ask;
now help me not to try to run the world for you, not even to run my won life. Amen.
