Revised from a much longer version that rests in my journal

Good Father Jesus
How bad I've been
How wreched... and how kind You are
to not strike me down
Forgive me of my sins

My mind goes round without stopping
Even in my dreams
I see insanity

I don't know which way to turn
One says right, the other left
One says forward, another back
And I always turn to him

I love him so
and he loves me
I think he does
We belong to each other

He needs his space
and I need him
So what's a solution?
I have to be brave again
I have to be selfless again
I just want to get what I want
Just one damn time

I want to be selfish  
I know that it's wrong
I know that it's evil
But, God, it hurts
to be so meek

They hurt You for it too..

Will my reward be in Heaven?
God forgive me
But I think not
I've sinned too much

I don't know what kind of person I am
Some say this, another that
Some say crazy, some say kind
Some say flawed, some say perfect
And they all say the other is wrong
No two people agree

I don't even agree within myself

Sweet Father Jesus
Forgive me of my sins
Now and at the hour of my death

Amen.

Love's a lovely lad
His bringing up is beauty
Who loves him not is mad
For I must pay him duty

Just remember God hears every prayer. You know He's there for you.

Well God doesn't offer cheap grace. But he does forgive as often as it's sought. Afterall, he predestined everybody to be saved. You have to opt out.

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.

That's why it's called salvation....the act of salvage....the junk gets rebuilt into something worthwhile.

There are gems like this in your journal......polish 'em up and post 'em, kid -- they deserve to be out where they can breathe free.

I just want to encourage you that there is only one sin that is unforgiveable - that is blaspheming the Holy Spirit, whatever that is.  Nothing you have done outside of that is unpardonable.  That is why He died on the cross for us.  And something else; if you don't believe in yourself and think yourself worthy, nobody else will dear.  God loves you for who and what you are right now.

Blessings,
Sheri Adams

Jesus lives in my heart!  He can in yours too!!!
