Dear God, I blind myself with my own self-regard.
On awakening, I think about my desires for the day. As I walk your pathways, I distract myself, digressing into needless pursuits – while my duties go undone.
Where are my thoughts of you? Where has my devotion gone?
Lord, rule my thoughts. It is my thinking that takes me away from you, and leaves me here, alone and lonely.
Rebuild my foundations, Lord! I have too long been walking on sand.
