Psalm 1275

O Father, I plead with You, remove the spirit of fear within
which has taken hold of me as Iíve stumbled on this path.
Following my own desires has brought unsettledness
and my actions have broken my relationship with You.
Iíve spoken of love, how it is selfish and one-sided,
so it has been with mine. It has been the same.
Selfish and one-sided as Iíve sought things I want
Things I thought Iíve needed.
My love has shown hardly any action toward glorifying You
and as a result darkness is overtaking me.
Honestly, Iíve been looking for the love Iím seeking
in people, places and things that cannot provide it.
My search has been in vain, creating an even larger void within me.
In this darkness I see, Iíve been fearless towards You.
Iíve not feared You,
Iíve believed You would still shower me with blessings
because You honor my choices by giving me
the freedom to choose.
Such is not the case, and I am grateful for Your mercy
I am thankful that you have not rendered punishment
which is rightly deserved.
Should You have rendered full punishment,
I would be dead and in the grave for
I am but dust held together by the miracle of Your love.
Just as I am held together by You,
You can also unbind me.
Your gentleness, O Lord brings me to tears,
Iím so thankful for You listening to the prayers
of this undeserving person.
I come here before You today seeking forgiveness
with the hope You will still continue to listen.
Iíve asked You to awaken the love within me,
and I donít want it be like the love Iíve shown so far.
I want to share the love you share with me
that is perfect and complete and full of action.
So I pray, Father, that the Sun of Righteousness,
come and rise with healing in His wings,
that I may go free leaping with joy like a calf set out to pasture.
I ask this in Jesusí name, Amen.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Herman, i am here for you and i hope you know that. Come on home God's prodigal son. We found you or you found us, i don't know which but you do have a link to prayer and understanding here with Patty and i... You or me or anyone has not gone so far that we can't come back to the open arms of Jesus. My email... jlw7727@yahoo.com I need to talk to you about setting up a blog for you and putting it there... think about a name for it.
