A Prayer

I can sit inside my room for hours
and just think about the wrong i've done
I can sit and just hate myself 
or regret doing whats all ready been done
staring at the wall 
knowing i cant redo my sins
all thats left is for me to pray
I get down on my knees 
I cry Jesus please forgive me 
and listen to what i'm about to say 
"Jesus I love you 
and i know you love me to 
I cant take this no more
I've done so much wrong 
and I dont know what to do "
he replies to me 
"My child  you cry to me for help 
but yet you've done no wrong 
for all you've done is served me 
and sang me glorious songs
its the people all around you
that make you think this way 
but child just pray for them 
I will  listen to what they have to say 
and for you my child
keep your walk with me 
for I can do great things in  your life
I can set you free"

    Ysabel, How true it is that Jesus takes away are grief and makes us feel whole again. When others tell us things that hurt, we have to let their words roll off our shoulders. Otherwise, we'd have burdens too huge for anyone to carry. I loved this wonderful poem. Very moving, Carolyn
