O, my Father, forgive me
I don’t know what I’m doing
I do know that you love me
You are so faithful
Deliver me, Lord
Please bestow on my life
Protection from the evil
That lies within me
Purify my heart, O Lord
Renew your Spirit in me
I am lost without your love
I know no other like you
Please come and give me wisdom
To reveal your loving heart
Help my unbelief
This battle runs deep
My mind is the battlefield
My emotions are land mines
Your presence saves me
My heart is touched by your love
Jesus died to forgive me
His resurrection
Is where I find peace of mind
I can hear Jesus saying:
I’ll never leave or forsake
The ones who accept
The gift of life that I give
My promise is always true
I’ll live in your heart
I will heal all of your wounds
Mankind cannot fathom this
A higher love comes
To those who are listening
Who are broken and cry out
I’ll never leave you
Is the promise I give you
My love is enough
I’ll set my mind
On things that are true and good
There is one who is good
My friend and Savior, Jesus
He draws me to renewal
Years ago, I found myself continually stepping on the land mines of my emotions.  God has taught me to every morning make His words my battleground and not my feelings.  My brokenness and abandoned feelings were comforted by the living Christ who said, “I will never leave you or forsake you.”  He keeps His word.   
Today’s focus and meditation has been Psalm 51, John 15, Colossians 3, and Matthew 11:28.
