Lately, I’ve been aware that what God wants of me is a lot less service and a lot more pondering. He wants me to slow down enough to realize what it really means that I’m a sinner saved by grace. He wants my attention so I can spend my time doing what he made me to do, not whatever I think is going to make me so valuable to him that he can’t do without me. Most of all, he’s showing me that he’s the Savior, who especially wants to save me from myself.
