Self-centeredness creeps into our lives in so many ways. Social media causes us to be self absorbed. We come home and turn on our televisions or computers and get sucked into a world that is self driven. Our minds are distracted as we pull out our phones, check our emails, monitor our texts, manage our phone messages. It is so easy to get sucked into things that just pertain to ourselves. Even God can be pushed to the wayside as we spend more and more time on technology and less and less time with Him as well as with our families and our friends.

Lately, I have come to the conclusion that for me I don't want this. Life is too short. In a matter of seconds it can be changed and we can die. We have a few years to make a difference, to reach out, to help those God has placed in our lives. I want to be this kind of person. People matter to me and so does God. My desire is for my life to be focused on God and people.

My prayer is that God will help me to be less self focused and more Christ centered so I can be the instrument He wants me to be. May He help my self-centered, sinful, human self be transformed into the person that cares deeply for the individuals that He places in my life. May I be a light, inspiration and encouragement to all who God surrounds me with. My hope and desire is that God will transform me so I will be a caring, kind-hearted person who is other focused. May I be God's vessel and conform to His will and desires each and every day of my life. Will you join me in this prayer?
