Egoism

Dear God,

You know that I was cast down in my feelings this morning—all from a disappointment.  I waited for a phone call that had been promised and never came.  But the time has passed now, and I am putting all of this behind me.  I only wish that I had recovered more quickly.

I did turn to You, but You did not seem close to me.  I didn’t feel the warmth that I usually feel when I pray.  Why were You so distant?

I think You knew my ego was involved, and You didn’t want to support egoism.  Now I am, I hope, back on track with You.  Let’s be close again.

Thank You for listening to me, even in my distress.

Amen.
