Beloved, I am weak and wary.
I want to run away from my existence,
Your love seems so far away.
Then like a warm blanket,
Your presence folds around me,
holding me still till I find find center
Passions burns out,
but Your love is an
trusting in Your love,
even when I want to run away.
help me to run towards,
to be held in Your warmth.
I want to just give up,
yet You call me to love.
Love folds into me like waves of the sea.
Your love is like the ocean,
fathomless and deep.
I want to be a devoted lover of Your depths,
like Jacque Cousteau, diving deeper in the
Ocean of Your love.
I shed dead weights that drag me down,
and find life giving air and freedom in
being loved and loving You.
I know I haven’t been faithful,
I am easily distracted by earthly clamors.
I am trying to follow Your will and Your way, the Way of Love.
But I am too dense, and sometimes I don’t understand.
Please make Your way clear for me,
and keep it simple. I need You to say
“Hey kid, wrong way, this way!” Thanks.
Your Beloved Child.
My heart is filled with gratitude for having forgiveness in my heart.
I never thought I could let go of that old anger that sat deep inside, but somehow my heart is a little lighter today.
Thank you for loving me, when I still act like a scared little boy, who lashes out a the world because he doesn’t want to be hurt.
Thank you for helping me a little more free today.
May Your love fill my heart with gratitude,
even when I am asleep.
I am so lost that I feel even You can’t guide me home. Hopelessness seems close…and yet I trust in Your love.
Your love and light guides me back on the path.
