I praise you,
you are my portion,
everything I’ve sought and needed,
the fulfillment of all I long for.
Thank you for holding onto me,
the long, broken path
for me to surrender
and finally find rest in your hands.
I surrender anew to you,
all of my self-conceptions,
regarding what I think is right or wrong,
my tree of knowledge of good and evil,
my self will,
what all the voices of my life have dictated,
from family, culture, tradition,
church, religion, society, and the world.
I lay down my past of regrets, failures,
and dim successes.
I lay down my future created by
my rigid and limited expectations.
Help me to be here now…
Opening up my heart,
my Path, my Way
in You alone.
Please let me walk in the garden with you Lord,
in your heartbeat,
teach me Your Ways,
show me Your Path.
Keep me always Lord,
and hold onto me,
that I would never get lost
or go astray again.
I love you Lord.
