Life- a delicacy that I am dedicated to saving. Every morning I wake up groggy, but thankful. I spent so much time pretending to be perfect, I fooled myself; I entertained others. I fell apart and I hit rock bottom, I am rising up, but one wrong move and all my accomplishments could crumble.I move closer to the finish line anticipating roadblocks,and the anxiety I struggle with overpowers my destiny. Pretending to be perfect, attempting to cover every flaw left me ashamed and hopeless, defeated by every attack. As I open my eyes and seek to be found, antagonizing thoughts bring me back to the ground. I am stronger now, I am built for the battle, I pretended to be perfect, but I am weak.I know the Lord works through weakness though, So I pray for guidance, the ability to endure hard times, and better days. Oh, Lord, I pray you keep your hands on me. Lord keep your hands on my family and friends. I no longer pretend to be perfect because I know I will never be. Lord I ask that you guide me through 2017. I love you and I need you Lord. In Jesus’name I pray, Amen. Our Father which art in heaven, hollow be thy name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For, Thine is the Kingdom, the Power, and the Glory. Forever. Amen.
