Please untie the knots
that are in my mind,
my heart and my life.
Remove the have nots,
the can nots and the do nots
that I have in my mind.
Erase the will nots,
might nots that may find
a home in my heart.
Release me from the could nots,
would nots and
should nots that obstruct my life.
And most of all, Dear God,
I ask that You remove from my mind,
my heart and my life all of the 'am nots'
that I have allowed to hold me back;
especially the thought
that I am not good enough.

HOPE this touches somebody as much as it did me!
Breathing in Grace,
We certainly do let ourselves get tied up with these! A wonderful post and my prayer as well.ReplyDelete
I really liked it, too, Ms. Melanie!Delete
Cute and powerful at the same time. Mother is in that twilight place between life and death. She has been like this for 3 days. Doctor has stopped all meds but comfort meds, which keeps her out of pain and more relaxed. I just sit by her bedside and wait for that last breath. She is so ready to go home and be reunited with our loved one there. I know God has a plan and will take her in His own time, He knows best. Tmrw is my birthday, how I pray she doesn't go then. Once again, I know God knows best. Thanks for your sweet message, please keep my Mom in your prayers. I've tried to blog a couple of times but can't seem to find any words to post.ReplyDelete
