most days i wake up and feel like a dreadfully horrible person. everything reminds me of what i’ve done in the past and who i’ve hurt.

it’s amazing what the Lord will do when i turn my focus off of my problems and instead focus on Him and His goodness and love. i realize that even in my hurt and wonderings, i’m so selfish — in that i’m consumed with what i’m feeling and what i’m going through. oh, just like i keep on hurting people over and over, i keep on forgetting to get my eyes off me and instead on Him. for it’s when i do that, that everything gets put back into perspective. it’s when i do that, that He washes me clean. and it’s when i do that, that i walk away feeling whole again.

Lord You are gracious
You are slow to anger
abounding in love
You are good to all
