brokeness


what is it about myself that makes it so hard for me to live how i want to--i mean, live fully for Christ, as i know i should? it seems like no matter how hard i try, i am always failing. i finally pick myself up off the ground only to jump back into the pit i just climbed out of. it is like i am freed from chains only to wrap the chains back onto my feet and start all over again.

LORD, I NEED YOU. I AM WEAK AND FRAIL AND WICKED AS SIN ITSELF. I NEED YOUR STRENGTH. HELP ME TO TAKE THE STRENGTH YOU OFFER ME (BECAUSE I KNOW YOU HAVE ALREADY GIVEN IT TO ME) AND TO DO WHAT I KNOW IS RIGHT. I LOVE YOU, HELP ME TO BE MORE LIKE YOUR SON. THAT PERFECT LAME THAT WAS BUTCHERED FOR MY SIN. I LOVE YOU, HELP ME TO LOVE YOU MORE.
AMEN.
