O Lord, let my heart be opened

Unafraid to let others in

Let my healing be a beacon

By your grace it can begin

Let the fears of rejection

Fly to places far

Fill my spirit with courage

To be a child bearing a scar

Unashamed of who I am

I’m yours, worthy of love

Seek to be God’s warrior

These pleas go upward and above

Forgiving insensitive indifference

They may not understand or care

Realizing I am worthy

Because your love is always there

Your continual forgiveness

For you intercede for me

Countlesss sins forgiven

Guilty penalty is now free

Lord, grant the grace to extend

Forgiveness that you provide

To others who have hurt yours

Opened heart with arms held wide

      1. Yes I guess it takes time, but some things are simply too difficult for us to handle, and God working in our lives becomes the only way for us to make it through. In my life trusting Him has been essential. Peace.

      1. Oh how I’ve said those words so many times, β€˜He’s the reason why I’m still here.’ I give him all the praise and credit for that. No one else, it’s not easy but through Him and with Him, it is possible.

      3. Oh indeed dear friend! Yes. It’s a tough conversation to have, but they do console my heart. There aren’t many out there that understand what it’s like. But, such a good feeling to know we’re understood.
