I needed this today. Mondays are starting to be harder with the beginning of the school week. I especially want this when I'm loving my kiddos. I read that we should live our children the way Christ loves us. Of course! But when you really think about how MUCH Christ loves us and shows His love...it's easy to see that THAT kind of love is what we SHOULD show our kids, but sometimes have a hard time doing. It's my mission to be more Christlike in my daily life...especially when living my family. :)
Prayer for Christlikeness
Dear Jesus, help me to spread your fragrance everywhere I go;
Flood my soul with your spirit and life;
Penetrate and possess my whole being so completely
That all my life may be only a radiance of yours;
Shine through me and be so in me
That everyone with whom I come into contact
May feel your presence within me.
Let them look up and see no longer me—but only Jesus.
