Snowflake Prayer

Snowflake Prayer - Sunday I mentioned the prayer I've prayed for myself for the last 30 years or so. Here is the version I have utilized.

Father,

I give myself anew to You this day
All that I am and all that I have
To be totally and unconditionally Yours for Your using.
Mold me into the image of Your Son
Deliver me from myself
And use me up today
As You will,
when You will,
where You will,
with whom You will
Be glorified in my life this day.

AMEN

Are You a Driven Person?

Are You a Driven Person? – I mentioned a list of chacteristics of a driven person as noted in the book, Ordering Your Private World, Gordon MacDonald. It describes the characteristics of stressed, driven people. I only talked about the first. Here is the full list.

A driven person is:


  1. Usually abnormally busy. They are usually too busy FOR the pursuit of ordinary relationships in marriage, family, or friendship—not to speak of one with God...They operate on the precept that a reputation for busyness is a sign of success and personal importance. Thus they attempt to impress people with the fullness of their schedule.
  2. Most often only gratified by accomplishment. They have little patience for or appreciation of the process leading to accomplishing something. The only worthwhile things are those that produce visible results.
  3. Preoccupied with attaining the things that symbolize accomplishment. Their goal is the ongoing acquisition of those things that represent power and status.
  4. Usually pursuing something that is “bigger” and “more successful” than their last endeavor. Tends to have a limited regard for integrity. “Shortcuts to success become a way of life. Because the goal is so important, they drift into ethical shabbiness.”
  5. Often characterized by limited or undeveloped people skills. “Because their eyes are upon goals and objectives, they rarely take note of the people about them, unless they can be used for the fulfillment of one of the goals.”
  6. Usually highly competitive. They see everything in life as a win-or-lose game. “Winning provides the evidence the driven person desperately needs that he is right, valuable, and important.”
  7. Often typified by “a volcanic force of anger,” which can erupt any time he senses opposition or disloyalty. This anger can be triggered when people disagree, offer an alternative solution to a problem, or even hint at just a bit of criticism.”
