Let me see all the ways that love of self motivates my actions.
In seeking safety, advancement, comfort. In gossip over others’ shortcomings. In planning out every step of the day for fear you will forsake me.
Let me see the self-love at the center of all of this, Lord. Grant me willingness that it be burnt out of me.
Let me stand blinking in the sunlight with fresh, pink skin. Make me a new person, beginning at my core.
