When I am tempted to lose hope and find
myself unable to look in the mirror because
of my shame and guilt, Father, I know that
I can call on You. You are the Kingdom, the
Power, and the Glory. You can change my
perspective. You can give me new eyes to see
what You see–that You love me deeply,
that You long for me as Your precious child.
I am humbled by Your pursuit and by the
thought that You see beauty when I struggle
to see beyond darkness. The depths of sin
shackle and bind me, but You hold the key
to freedom and Your love breaks the bonds
that burden me.
