Lord,

I know it and You know it. 

I try to put distance between You and me. I do this for a whole host of reasons – I’m insecure, want things to go my way,  desire comfort, long to prove how good I am and hope to be in control. Of course, I’m not proud of it. In fact, I despise it. Yet it seems to keep happening. 

I’m sorry, Lord, and ask Your forgiveness.

Yet even as I seek it, I’m already experiencing the amazing grace of Your love. It allows me to trust You enough to be honest, be forgiven while still imperfect and live with the assurance that You never give up on me.  

Thank You again and again and again in the strong name of Jesus.

Amen.
