A Prayer

A Prayer

A Story by Kelly M.

Jesus, what is left of me, take it.  The brokenness, the bitterness, the shattered pieces, the unlovely parts of me-- take it all.  I beg you to draw near to me, sit with me, hold me close to You.  If I even have a heart left inside of me, bring it back to life.  Invade the secret places in my heart that I so often try to hide, and reveal them.  Won't You remind me of who You are and all that You have planned for me?  Won't You whisper to me that I am valued and worth so much in Your eyes?  Tell me again of Your goodness.  Tell me again of Your abounding love for me.  Tell me again of joy-- of such joy that You desire me to have in my life.  Take my despair-- here, I offer it to You-- and exchange it for joy.  Overwhelm me with the peace that You so freely offer and that surpasses all understanding.  Let me know I am forever Yours and that I have been fashioned to bring You glory and that all that I am, every part of me, is meant to bring Your name praise.  Warn me of the paths I shouldn't go down.  Guide me to the place where You are.  Show me what to do with my life.  But I know I can't move into all the wonderful things You have for me until I let go of this bitterness residing in my heart towards others.  Take these grudges I hold against people.  Take this bitterness that is rotting me away.  Let forgiveness overflow from my heart to them.  Convict me of any other offensive ways in me.  Point out the things or people in my life I have to lay aside to pursue You and the life You have waiting patiently for me.  Prepare me for what is to come-- trials and blessings.  Teach me and help me to listen.  Lead me in the everlasting way.  I gladly surrender all of me for all of You.  I love You, Father. <3

I don't know what to say here. It's just... thoughts, really. All poured out. To be honest, I wrote this for someone on my heart, but also myself-- and for everyone else who needs this. :)
