Lord of All,

There are days my heart breaks.

I feel unworthy and unloved. I cannot escape how I have hurt You and harmed others. I keenly feel the pain and suffering of those I know. And I’ve shrunk Your universe so much that I’m at the center of a very small piece of it.

The more I dwell in these realities, the more despondent I become.

But I’ve come to understand that’s exactly the point. I need You. Not just to rescue me from the pit, but also to become the unique person You have created me to be and to live in Your Will in everything I do.

This is my life. May I embrace it. Find joy in it. Revel in it. And experience everything I didn’t even know I was longing for in it.

Thank You, Lord.

Thank You.
