My Redeemer, my Sustainer

Father, please forgive me for not taking joy in the little things in life that You have given to me. I have forsaken all of the gifts that You have blessed me with by seeking fulfillment and satisfaction in the things of the world. I have neglected to thank You for all that You have done in my life. I take it for granted that I can wake up everyday, forgetting to thank You for this life that You have created. With every passing breath that I take, I ignore the very source. I give little thought to the One who gives me sustenance. I've treated You as a gumball machine, expecting things to go my way and whining when it doesn't, all the while asking You for things that are harmful to me. My prayers have become nothing more than wishlists, bombarding You with material wants and greeds. I ask not for Your will to be done, but mine. And for that Lord, I am sorry. Please forgive me and teach me to look outside of my own self. May my eyes be fixed on You. Thank You for this life, for my health, for my family, for the shelter, food and warmth You have provided me with, for my reconciliation with You, for fellowship, for joy and for peace. Thank YOU, Father.
