Favorite Quote:
"If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it probably is a duck."

Why must my emotions

take over me?
Aren't I old enough

to control them?
Lord help me not hurt so,

guide me always.
Let me not succumb to

sin and its ways.
Sin that leads me to do

things against You,
To do things out of spite,

out of anger,
To be upset, to cry,

all from nothing.
The question I ask is

why, dear Lord, why?
I want to grow up, Lord,

to think freely,
To not be overcome

with wretched tears,
But instead laugh with ease,

and praise Your name;
Praise you without restrain,

to be sincere.
I wish to put my strength,

my hope, my life,
All upon You. Oh Lord

Jesus, save me!
I need Your guiding hand.

In the name of
Christ Jesus, my Savior,

amen. Amen.

Not that anyone needs a reason to pray, but I had a bad day and just needed to give it up to God.
