“There is no fire like lust, no vice like hatred, no trap like delusion, and no galloping river like craving.” - Buddha
“The evil of the wicked is a well of darkness - all who know have said this much. The worse he is, the more his well is ghastly, for justice has awarded worse for worse.” - Rumi
“Once, you were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of your evil behavior.” - The Apostle Paul
On many occasions I’ve thrown myself headlong into the well of darkness and been a secret enemy of God.
I know how my faults feed my folly.
I know how I’ve rejected right ways.
There are still wild and wayward parts of my thoughts and my spirit.
I still haven’t completely contained my chaos
- Nor should I.
Father, You’ve led me to this space.
You’ve removed indecision.
You’re moving me into Your will.
But, I’m still afraid.
I still have cravings and desires.
And there is still my pride.
Please redeem and forgive my flaws.
I pray You will use me to create a greater good.
I am broken. Please fix me.
