Today's devotion starts out a little silly, dizzy, and whirly!
I feel older this week. I don't know why. I just do. I feel tired, burnt out, and fatter. I'm gaining weight and I don't know why, but then I just want to sleep. Because of my age, my identity as seemed to change in this new self-discovery.
Today's devotion is about self-discovery and finding oneself. Yes, of course, we ultimately find our identity, purpose, and ourselves in Christ, but as a sinful human being, we are on an individual life-long journey of constantly finding ourselves.
Please pray with me. Lord, preserver of my life, forgive my sins and save me from my sinful self. You are good and forgiving! During this day in advent I think on Your coming and ask that You sustain my faith forever more so that I may be prepared. Guide me through this faith journey as I continually learn more about myself and grow through that learning in a relationship with You. Give me time of rest so that I can sit and ponder on Your Word, Your mercy, Your grace, Your goodness, and Your creation. Thank You for knowing me better than I know myself and being that rock that I can lean on. Even when I do not love myself, You love me through it. I can feel Your loving today! In Your precious holy name I pray. Amen.
