leaning on my own understanding

God's love is inexhaustible, unfathomable, and beyond human description.  He is God of the universe.  Creator of the heavens.  the Everlasting God.  He is Lord over all.

yet, most days, i do not come before Him out of love or respect, in awe or reverence.  instead, i come out of a feeling of obligation or desperation, purely selfish motives.

i have a foolish view of time spent with my Savior and have foolishly failed to hold that time sacred. it is He who is all sufficient, the One who helps me at each break of day.  from Him comes wisdom, knowledge and understanding.  He is my refuge and strength.  God and only God can direct my path.

so why do i continue to lean on my own understanding!?!

"May my meditation be pleasing to him, as I rejoice in the Lord."  Psalm 104:34

"...offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God - this is your spiritual act of worship."  Romans 12:1
