"As long as we are wrapped up in ourselves and our own problems and the things that are going on around us, we are not in a position to worship God."
I admit, I have a very self centered streak in me. I am working on it. But it's really hit me this last week for some reason. I've been thinking about it a lot, and this quote was an answer. It is exactly what I needed to hear. The thought crossed my mind a couple of days ago as I was saying my prayers, that I can't possibly have a close relationship with God if I'm always worrying about my problems.
Just some food for thought.
