Less of Me


Many, O Lord my God, are Your wonderful works Which You have done; And Your thoughts toward us cannot be recounted to You in order; If I would declare and speak of them, They are more than can be numberedPsalm 40:5

A few days ago, I woke up with seven words on my mind…More of You Lord, less of me.

I knew it had to do with the way I’d felt when I went to bed the night before. Frustrated with emotions that I’d buried months ago, and were now coming back to the surface. Feelings I could either bury again, or would have to deal with now.

Neither choice looked appealing, but those words kept running through my mind like a ticker tape reminder…More of You Lord, less of me.

That reminder became my prayer over and over throughout the day because I know that when I don’t have it in me to deal with something, God does.

When I struggle to forgive…

More of You Lord, less of me.

When I don’t understand and don’t know which way to go…

More of You Lord, less of me.

When I can’t change my circumstances or someone else’s actions…

More of You Lord, less of me.

When I feel lost and lonely…

More of You Lord, less of me.

When my emotions are going to overtake me…

More of You Lord, less of me.

So often I forget this, trying to deal with things on my own. But the truth is, every day, in every situation, I need more of Him and less of me.
