You don't like yourself today

You’re sitting in a small call booth in your office this slow Wednesday afternoon, where you’ve dreamed about going to my bed than anything else.

You’re reading Michelle Obama’s Becoming, following the ebb and flow of her life growing up as a disciplined and ambitious young girl from the South Side of Chicago, to eventually becoming the first African-American First Lady of the United States. Hers is a life made great by the culmination of a series of small, good, responsible choices.

And for you, if you would believe.

Over the past few weeks, Psalm 65 has appeared and reappeared in my personal bible studied (which I’ve been very bad at.)

First, I was praying to God to hit my targets at work, and I was praying Psalm 65:2, which says “O You who hear prayer, To You all flesh will come.”
