Author requests article critique
I feel under appreciated and overworked.
I'm exhausted, angry, frustrated and hurt.
I know You never promised this life would be easy.
But You did say You would never forsake nor leave me.
I stopped trusting and believing in You,
Because I could not find the right thing to do.
You waited for me just to ask,
But I hid behind rebellion and stubbornness.
I built a prison to hide in,
And returned to the same old sin.
My rebellion and anger grew more and more.
And yet, You kept knocking at my door.
I closed off my heart, and Satan got in.
He told me that You would never love me again.
Self-pity and discontent were my constant companions,
But still, You didn't leave me - You never abandon.
You sent angels from earth - in family and friends,
To remind me that You love the sinner, but hate the sin.
And now, As I start the long journey back,
Help me, God, to stay on the right track.
Let me learn to be content and focus on You,
No matter what circumstance I am going through.
This thorn in my side - this addiction - may never be removed.
But help me know that I can trust in You.
So now I ask, still with some reservation,
That You help me find again, the joy of my salvation.
Help me be content, submit and trust You freely,
That I may boast in Your grace and sufficiency.
