Gratitude: Prelude to Compassion’s 12 Steps

Thank You, Father God, for using me as a teacher. Thank You for Oswald Chambers’ devotion and uncompromising faith, for true questions, vision, arm’s length examples and victory over self.

Thank You for putting in my inner circle people who, in their attitudes toward me, would show me how I have treated You so I could learn the profound meaning of Your loving us still – even when we are useless, resistent, wayward, petty, self-absorbed, hateful, victimy, scapegoating, passing the buck, immature, cantankerous, obstinate, ridiculous, self-deluded, arrogant, indifferent, critical, hostile, monotonous, repetitive, unkind, and everything but the child of your creating.
