Life is a smorgasbord for my ever-ravenous ego.
So many choices, all feeding my ego’s need for attention.
At work, the buffet sometimes overflows.
At home, there are snacks on every table.
Everywhere I go, everywhere I look, my ego finds something to devour.
Yet my ego is not my friend.
It resists my desire to wrest my eyes from the buffet,
and look more to the Holy Spirit of Jesus within me.
My hearts desire is that Jesus become greater within me,
and my ego becomes less.
It feels like the never-ending on-again, off-again diet.
Yet my diet coach is the very Son of God.
My ego against Jesus – guess who’s winning.
My ego keeps fighting for attention,
but Jesus in my heart is stronger.
And I’m so grateful.
For life is limitless without my ego holding me prisoner.
