For You know me better than I know myself.
You know that it’s hard for me to let go of things that I have done and give them to someone else to handle. It’s against my nature–against my will. Because I feel like I should finish things I started.
And it’s no different when it comes to sin. I don’t want, of my own will, to give it to You, because I don’t want You to have suffered for something I did out of haste and misery and a complaining attitude. I feel it is my fault and I should bear the consequences of my actions.
But I did not realize all of this until You revealed this to me. I did not realize why I couldn’t seem to let go of the past, move on, and be a shining light in the world, by the power of the Holy Spirit. But thank You, Holy Spirit, for speaking into my heart and allowing me to release these burdens once and for all!
Please pour through me and shine Your light through me, and use me to reach out and encourage others.
I love You, I need You! Thank You, Father! Thank You, Lord Jesus for taking away my shame and my guilt. Thank You for purifying and cleansing me.
I need Thee every hour of every day!!!
