O Lord, I have always wanted to be special.
Now I read about someone
who celebrated being ordinary
among ordinary folks.
It gave me such a feeling of relief:
to not have to prove something.
Lord, your presence within
makes us special.
Forgive me, Lord, for trying so hard
to be better than others,
rather than accepting myself as I am:
one of your children,
all of whom are special

Psalm 105:4
Seek the LORD and his strength; seek his presence continually.

Luke 13:30
Indeed, some are last who will be first, and some are first who will be last.
