Once again I fail.
I let my emotions, my pride,
rule the moment.
I focus on my anger, my offense,
and I fight the battle inside.
The lie threatens to win.
"Father, help me!", I cry out, "Don't let me give up."
Then Truth whispers at my soul.
You are mine.
I listen and receive.
Peace works its way into my knotted soul.
I close my eyes ... comforted.
