241 All About Me

 241 All About Me

My day and night got mixed up. I took a little nap around 10 p.m. last night, when I woke up I checked on the football games I was interested in. The team I was interested in lost, in fact dominated. My fragile loyalty to that team has depth; in fact I only watch the first half because it was not going according to my plan. My concern for my disappointment was greater than my compassion for those faithful people who went to that school and the game. I know their team that worked hard preparing, playing the game and losing it but I was only concerned with my disappointment. I hate the saying about a self-centered person; "so it is all about you." About the time I think I am free from too much self-centeredness my denial breaks down. I have more to own and surrender to our Boss. I believe I am loyal to my mission, my heart’s desire to do our Father’s will most of the time but not 24/7. My mission is my recreation, I love it, and it is not a duty. Doing anything other than my heart’s desire is more like a duty. I pray that this is enlightened self-interest and Self-concern. Thy Love be done.
