Spirit, eat up my selfishness

Oh, I think to myself 
All I think about is myself 
In my cell.

Anticipating a wicked awesome Spring Break, starting tomorrow morning, right after my last exam. It's going to be stellar jamz, yo. But also really praying that God would break me of myself. I've seen so much selfishness in my behavior these last weeks at school. At the very least, my internal life is all about me. Christ has shown me today that I act as if I am on the throne. It's a very dull way to live. But, I want Him to reign! And I always find that when I serve selflessly through His strength, I am 10 times more joyful than I am when I do whatever I want. Rid me of myself.

"If we are out of our mind, it is for the sake of God; if we are in our right mind, it is for you. For Christ's love compels us, because we are convinced that One died for all, and therefore all died. And He died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for Him who died for them and was raised again." ~ 2nd Corinthians 5:13-15
