Letting Go



 Come Holy Spirit!

Bind up the tendrils
of doubt, 
twist them
into braids
of faith

Come Holy Spirit!

Take away the 
ache of 
shortcomings, and
heal them with
a Holy band-aid of
God’s grace.

Come Holy Spirit

Create in us
a pure heart.
Give us courage 
to proclaim
His Majesty 
and the wisdom
to selflessly step 
aside, and let
the great Jehovah
have control.

  2. Yes! I know too often we ( I ) tend to hold onto my shortcomings. I should not. When I take them to the Lord; He is ready to forgive. So why would I fail to forgive myself when the Almighty God has forgiven me.

  3. That is the absolute truth too, but sometimes we tend to forget who is in control. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.
