The path to self[ishness] is a lonely + painful one. How could I get so far away? How did I travel so far without taking one single step?
Surely emotional distance is much greater than physical. Forgive me. Forgive me for my selfishness. Forgive me for choosing the fruit from the tree of knowledge between good + evil rather than the tree of life, Lord.
Thank you for leading me home. I am humbled, underserving + in loving awe of you. Praise you King Jesus. You held these children in your merciful hands while I took for granted all you had given me; that for which I so earnestly prayed for.
Reinstate your daughter, your servant, Lord. Redeem me; I humbly bow.
I love you.
