Separating self from work

O God, you are the Eternal One, Yahweh, Jehovah, the only Four-Letter Word, however it may be written or pronounced, but we get the idea! You were, and are, and ever will be. You are the God who Is. The true and living God.
Give me, Lord, a similar sense of Being. Let me understand who I am, THAT I am, apart from what I do, from the job I drive to every morning. Or from the job I lost. Or from the work I failed to finish successfully.
Let my worth as your creation not be diminished by feelings of failure or by not performing up to par. Keep me from identifying my work with my worth.
Because my worth, and that of every person, was proved at the Cross. Amen.
