Psalm 1261

Psalm 1261

Iím so sorry, Father.

I donít know why I am the way that I am.

I want so much to be someone else, someone different.

You mean so much to me, and Iím sad

Because I know how much you donít like the way II ve.

Why canít I let go? Why canít I be the person my heart wants me to be?

Who do I have here, who do I have here that I can talk to like this?

Yeah I have family, but they donít put their foot down,

And I carry on the way that I do.

Everything seems to go well for a while, and then Iím back,

To that same old me that I used to be.

I donít lie about what I do to others.

Yet sometimes it seems all they want to do,

Is discourage me, and they tell me that I am not a true follower of You.

It gets hard hearing that all the time.

Iím so afraid that Iím going to die discouraged.

Iím going to diie in this hell all alone

In tears crying to You.

Please, Father, please take my hand.

Lead me out here.

Keep me safe from all my troubles. 

I try to speak to others who share my belief in You.

Iím here surrounding myself with them, yet Iím avoided

Like Iím a plague.

I donít understand what it is.

Is it my honesty about the things that I do?

Is it because I admit the sins I cry to You about?

Or is because they see me and find themselves good compared to me?

Sin is being in flesh. There is no man on earth who does not sin.

When I cry out to You, I share my suffering with everyone

For when one part of the body suffers the other lifts up.

Right?   That is what weíve been taught.

Now where are the many supportive voices of the body?

The voices of the Christ-like people that are supposed to be supportive when one falls down?

I can count the number of voices on one hand.

Is this the true representation of the true Body of Christ, Father?

Protect me from all the scemes people plan.

Keep me safe from the hearts of stone

Of people who say they believe in You but donít.

The ones that are in this same place that I am.

There are a lot of things we have in common,

But yet all I have in this darkness, is You, and very few others.

Everything around me is old, Father,

It needs to be made new.

If it isnít, Iíll surely go down to the grave.

I wonít be able to call out Your name from there.

Who will listen to me there?

Everyone is in torment there, crying out, but they canít make a sound.

In that place

 the tormentors hands never leaves their shoulders

and the tormentors teeth, never leaves their head.

What makes it even more tormenting

They can see You and those who rest with you

but there is a gulf that cannot be passed.

The grip of the grave is everlasting for anyone who doesnít believe in You.

Please tell me there is a reason, why Iím in the place that Iím in.

Please tell me there is a reason for my life being this way.

Why do I come back here, why am I haunted by this darkness?

Why canít I live around others who believe in each other?

I need You, Father, please donít leave me here all alone.

Please donít let me mess up the good things I have going for me.

Iíve gotten everything off my chest, and now that I have,

Iím going to pray, Father,

And I pray that every person not only registered on this website,

But everyone, the entire body, be brought into Your likeness.

Help me forgive, Father, help us all forgive and accept forgiveness,

for You have forgiven us.

It is a gift that has been given to us and should be given freely by us.

Clean out this bitterness and anger and may love control our hearts.

Help me walk forward with You, Father, and not look back.

May you tell me when I am wallowing in injustices committed against me,

Opens my ears to hear.

Help me grow and abound in love Lord.

Donít let me give unforgiveness a place in my heart.

Give my eyes sight to see it.

I realize my weakness provides a place for You to reveal Your strength,

And Iím not letting go of You, Father, Iím not letting go

In every high and every low, Iím going to keep You close,

so help me walk in victory, Father, and not just do the best that I can.

I ask this in Jesusí name,


Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty,

Who was, and is, and is to come.

i share all these feelings just as you, and my faith is unshakable.its important to remember that satans attacks are relentless against us of a strong faith, but its that exact faith that lets us see those attacks, and will carry us through.there is nothing wrong with you, or I, were just different.God loves us very much, and even though in this life we have our shortcomings, and we always want to be that picture of perfection, God knows our hearts, and He knows all those wonderful things about us, that we tend to forget.We are already Christ-like, just not perfect.Its hard to forgive ourselves, but i assure you, God has already forgiven us, and remembers our sins no more.My tears fall on the world, and our brothers, and sisters who do not yet know the truth we have come to love, and cherish.Remeber, we are to stay humble, never to judge, not even ourselves, and look at everyone as better than we.Not everyone understands Gods word like others, so, there will always be judging, and pointing of fingers, shrug it off your chest, and think nothing of it, because those people who look at us in judgement, they are the ones who have not found thier way yet, so, remember to pray for them, and treat them with will be ok, and just fine.feel free to message me back if you have any questions, or just need someone to talk to.God-Bless sis
