Embarrassed and weak, I’m here before You Lord with my head down in shame. Not only did I respond incorrectly, but now I see how weak I really am. In fact self-disappointment consumes me. At this time I feel tired, worn out, and just exhausted. I feel beaten up and defeated in my struggle to overcome this addiction. Overall I feel like a wet dishrag. Your love is my only hope.
Child, just go forth one step at a time. Put one foot down and go forward. Look to Me and I will lead you.
Lord, I’m at one of those places- a stopping place. For now I’m not sure where to go or what to do? All looks grim and hopeless.
Child, how many times have I told you this? “Don’t look at what you see, instead look at Me.”
Child, tiredness never affects Me. Therefore I always keep on working all things out. You may be down in defeat, but I’m still working behind the scenes. So I’ll repeat this to you again, “Don’t look at what you see, instead look at Me.”
Lord, I have failed so much. Given that I’m standing here in all my failures embarrassed before You. How can I start over with You again?
Child, I am the God of second chances. I arranged for you and many others a second chance for eternity. Now come into My arms. Allow Me to hold you, to love you just as you are. I know you’re full of flaws and failures. I know you can’t save yourself, not even from yourself. That’s why I came to save those who will accept My love.
TRUST ME, for I can create beauty even out of the broken and damaged.
For nothing is impossible with God. Luke 1:37
But He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 2 Corinthians 12:9
I’ve blotted out your sins; they are gone like morning mist at noon! Oh return to Me, for I have paid the price to set you free. Isaiah 44:22 TLB
