A Lenten thought

I laid in bed for what seemed like hours

In exasperation, exhausted in tears I cried, end it Lord, make it stop.

if my tormentors are right help me to know so that I may seek forgiveness

if I cannot know I shall not stand, I shall be struck down in ignorance

reveal to me the source of that which separates me from you

tear it from me, that I may know it is gone

my soul waits to be refreshed by your word

as you have helped your people in the past may others look and see my deliverance as your redeeming love

it is you oh Lord who will withdraw from my iniquities

You shall deliver me by taking me to be with you for evermore. amen
