Morning Prayer

Good morning, God, there’s a lot to say.
First, let me thank you for another day.

I haven’t been grateful for what I’ve been given.
Forgive me for that, I want to start living.

I long to step out of the lies to your truth,
And not get bogged down with the sins of my youth,

Next, would you show me your mercies anew?
And help me to focus on all that is true?

My heart and my mind still get stuck in the past.
Grant me a vision to see what will last.

Finally, won’t you please give me direction?
Along with a dose of your love and protection?

I’m wandering, wondering what to do now.
Help me to be still and at your feet bow.

 

Thanks for heart-composting with me! I appreciate your words.
