I can’t even love me, how can I love others?
My attitude stinks.
Bitterness flows from my heart.
The truth is far from me.
Gentleness does not know my name.
My speech is uncontrollable.
I try to bring peace, but chaos and confusion seems to follow me.
My past won’t stay behind me.
Kindness is distance, I try.
Gossip follows me whereever I go.
Pride keeps me from You.
My life is a wreck and I don’t know how to fix it.
Shame and guilt surround me.
Doubt is all I know.
Prayer seems so distance. The words insufficent.
How can you love me?

That was beautiful, but ohhh did I feel myself in 1 or 2 of those lines... Yes the Lord forgives us, but the challenge and the difficulty we have of trying not to stay in those situations can be very hard, especially with today's world. Also when you have baby christians. But We still have to maintain and keep the patience, listening for our God, he will never leave us nor forsake us. Just cry out to him asking for forgiveness.
What an awesome God huh!
