I try my best, I really do. But I also know the truth. And it’s not pretty. In fact, it’s so painful it causes my soul to ache.

I hurt You deeply. I hurt others deeply. I hurt myself deeply.

Forgive me, Lord. Please forgive me. But more than that, transform me. From the top of my head to the tips of my toes. From the inside out. Every part of me. Especially those parts I want to pretend don’t exist.

Do it with Love that accepts me just the way I am. Love that is not content to leave me the way I am. Love that will never let go of me.

So today, Lord, let me experience the depth and breadth of Your love. The power of Your forgiveness. And the joy of Your new life.

I’m ready, Lord.

I’m so ready.
