Jesus, It isn’t always easy to lay aside my wants, desires, and opinion when following you. My foolish heart often believes that I know a better way than you… particularly when you lead me through suffering. Teach my heart to focus on your priorities for my life, not my own. Teach me, Lord, to trust where you lead. Teach me, Lord, to hold tight in times of trial. Teach me, Lord, to follow. Thank you for the cross, thank you for the suffering you endured on my behalf. Let my life be used for your glory.
