a shining trade

      This day will be filled with you-first-or-me-first choices. Every free you-first is a shining trade: self-absorption for joy.

Self-absorption: preoccupation with one’s own emotions, interests or situation

Father, please fill and satisfy me with Your steadfast love today so that I won’t try to fill and satisfy myself. Only then I will sing for joy. From Psalm 90:14
