Tooting my own horn

An absence of three years from the WA community means that nearly every conversation is an explanation of what we’ve been doing. I’ve also found myself, subconsciously, re-establishing myself, tooting my own horn, so to speak.
“See, I’m not really a ‘newbie,’ I’ve still got it. My time away hasn’t turned me into a clodhopper educationally. Look at what God’s been doing in my life.” (and that last is really “Look at how I’ve been following Jesus!”

My prayer for today is this: Please, my wonderful Lord, help me to be more YOU-focused, others-focused–instead of ME-focused. Guide me away from my own stories, away from the use of “I” and into deep, real interest in others’ lives.

May I decrease. May YOU increase.
In and through me.
