Oh glorious Creator,

You love me
when I am feeling (or acting) unlovable.

You hear me
when my thoughts are a jumbled mess.You love me when

You see me
when I try to hide in shame.

You love me
when I am moody and selfish.

You hold me
when I grieve devastating loss.

You protect me
when I am attacked by fear.

You love me
when I am afraid and alone.

You comfort me
when I don’t even know I’m sad.

You know me
when I am a confusing puddle to myself.

You love me
no matter what

I am
awed
amazed
thankful
joyful

that you do.

to lie flat on the lawn
watching the clouds become stories
have conversation with ladybugs
and worry for her children

But I must find balance
for I am an adult

I pay the bills
to keep my comforts
I go to work
to make a difference
I make decisions

who have days
when they don’t wanna

Create in me a clean heart, O God
wash away my negative thoughts
scrub my mind to a sparkle

Renew my connection with you
holding me in your arms
gathering me in your lap
so that all I see
is you

Restore unto me
the joy of you
you have saved me
you have freed me
you love me

Remind me
of your grace
Remind me
of your love
Refresh my spirit
with your presence
You are always by my side
