Please untie the knots
that are in my mind,
my heart and my life.
Remove the have nots,
the can nots and the do nots
that I have in my mind.
Erase the will nots,
may nots, and
might nots that find
a home in my heart.
Release me from the could nots,
would nots and should nots
that obstruct my life.
And most of all, dear God,
I ask that you remove from my mind
my heart and my life all of the am nots
that I have allowed to hold me back,
especially the thought
that I am not good enough.
I love that final line! ‘The thought that I’m not good enough’ Because that is the WHOLE point – I’m NOT good enough, nobody is. But since when was that problem to God?
‘The great thing about grace is that it makes life unfair’
That quote and this brilliant little prayer (forwarded by someone called Jo Bowman) was sent to me by www.mikeysFunnies.com
This one says so much about all the ways in which we hold ourselves back from being all that God intends us to be.
