|I received this cute card years ago from a cousin.|
I wish I could remember what it said, but
I think she gave it to me, because this exactly
what I looked like as a child! :)
Giglio confronted the idea of how we usually pray (Dear Lord, thank you for this day, bless me, my family, the events of the day, forgive my sins, in Jesus' name, amen.) and suggested we start by understanding and acknowledging that we are blessed. That the blessing promised to Abraham was fulfilled in Jesus and poured out on us, His followers, and that there is no further need to request God's blessing. He has already given us everything we need!
"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ."
This is worship! Eyes off of me, and on to Him.
What if we chose to "remix" the way we pray and begin and end by acknowledging all we have and all we are in and through Christ?
Would I even be able to begin to look for my navel?
