Faith is knowing that you are a part of the universe and of a plan even bigger than the universe.
I’m offering You my life, my desire, my wishes, and my dreams. I’m letting You take over, day and night. Because God, You know better. You know what’s right for me.
I tried to be the perfect Christian, and it turns out that God just needed me to be myself.
I thank You, God, for I am so undeserving to attain this overwhelming affection.
You have to trust time. Trust the unknown. Trust yourself. And just let things be.
God, I feel lost. I feel stuck. Right now I don’t feel like myself. I don’t feel like I’m walking with you. And I want to be.
You are rescued from pain.
I’ve always been a driven, independent girl. I’ve gone after what I wanted, pursued my passions, and been incredibly happy accomplishing my goals and seeking the Lord. But as I’ve gotten older, it’s become clear to me that I’d rather spend my life pursuing goals with someone else than alone.
Thank you for loving me. Thank you for loving me despite my flaws, despite my sins, despite all the ways I won’t and never will measure up to your perfection. Thank you for giving me a second chance, a third chance, a three millionth chance to start again, and to love me, unconditionally.
I’m slowly learning to let it be. To take deep breaths when I’m faced with conflict, to remind myself that I’m only human, and I will try and fail and still not be any less.
