What Will She Think?

She’s been told something so horrible to hear.
She’s been informed of needless information.
Will it be too much to remain friends?
Will it damage our good and godly relation?
I hated having to tell her what I did.
I was trying to obey you with open confession.
Will she think less of me and avoid me?
Can she bear the news of my transgression?
I pray that she doesn’t hold it against me, Lord.
I think so dearly of her.
If I could take away my ugly past, I would.
You of all people know it’s not what I would prefer.
Please help her to forgive me, Lord.
Don’t let her judge me by this deed.
I want to show her and you I’m sorry.
For mercy, I plead.
I pray for her, Lord.
As she has a way of thinking that I do not know.
Help us to grow in sisterhood.
Help us both to let go.

I Need You & Your God

So many times you have shaken your finger in my face.
So many names you have called me and said,
“You should be ashamed of yourself!”
Well, I am.
I have been.
But I can’t grow in this “new life“ if you
merely continue shaking your finger and walk away.
Satan wants me to continue being ashamed.
Do you want to help him keep me there?
Or do you really want to share your gospel…
in true love?
I need your guidance.
I need your support.
If this is a family of God,
I need my Godly family to help me grow.
I want to give to you in return,
But all I have to give is not what
ANY OF US
want to know anymore.
I’m trusting you and your God…
our God!
