    Dear Father

    hear me

    humbled, I come before you

    humbled, I ask forgiveness

    humbled, I turn my troubles over to you

    You have never left my side,
    repeatedly
    I let go
    of your guiding hand
    and gentle spirit

    humbled, I search for your hand
    again

    humbled, I ask to come home,

    humbled, I kiss your feet

    This world is Satan's playground,
    yet, you have surrounded me with angels
    of all kinds

    When my heart aches,
    for whatever reason,
    whatever demon tries to whisper
    in my ear
    "You're not good enough"

    "That sin will never be washed away"

    "Do it, no one will know....

    no one will know.....

    no one will know...."

    You know my crimes,
    I cannot sneak in on tippy toes
    You see all,
    so I surrender all now
    to you, Father

    humbled

    humbled

    humbled

    yet still loved.

    Thanks, Family!

    I have some things going on, and needed to take a minute and recognize who truly holds me together. Peace and blessings!!
