For all the times I’ve failed to Love Your Spirit deep inside of me,
Where hatred and neglect have grown and kept me from the seeds you’ve sown.
I promise to release this day each wall I’ve built that blocks my way
I’ll open to Your Spirit true and learn to love myself as You.
I see now, Lord, you Live in me; Your presence always nudging me.
Your message always sweet and clear: “Come my child, I am here”.
Yet at times I turn away, proceeding on my self-made way.
Down that path I walk alone. I don't see where I’ve gone wrong.
And comes a time I cannot breathe; fear and doubt have conquered me.
No longer do I know you’re near; I do not feel your Love so dear.
It’s at this time I pause again and give to You my deepest pain.
Forgive myself for what I’ve done, and hear You gently ask: “Please come”.
So now, dear Lord, I pray to see: I pause to feel your Love in Me.
I go within to seek Your light, to hear Your guidance clear and bright.
I give myself the gift of You; forgive myself with Love that’s true.
And then I go along life’s way, I love myself and all this day.
