God I’m sooooo discouraged, my heart is so incredibly broken, it aches, it hurts so much God. It is so empty that a small gust of wind chills it to the core. It’s throbbing in agony father. Nothing works, nothing fills, in desperation I indulge in the tangible things of this world which only scrape the hole deeper. It hurts so much God. How can I continue any longer in my day, how can I study, how can I think and live and breathe and face this burdensome world when I am dying from thirst? From where else can I draw energy from, from where can I be filled with life instead of crushed by death? “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life.” (John 6:68 NIV)
I come God. Have mercy, let your grace overflow in me. I can do nothing without you- I desire nothing besides you. No step is worth taking unless you are with me, fully and wholly. “Whom have I in heaven but you? And earth has nothing I desire besides you.” (Psalm 73:25 NIV)
a broken and contrite heart
you, God, will not despise.
