My ego would prefer I avoid the pain, and not look too closely at the root of is cause. Today I choose the courage it takes to look honestly at who I've been, how I've behaved, and how I've contributed the problems that beset my life. A moment of crisis can be a moment of growth, as the wounded self prepares to transform. From the chrysalis of my pain, I will forge my healing - the wings of my newborn self.
Dear God, I am preparing to be a better me, Facing ways in which I have not been The person You would have me be. Be with me as I endure the pain Of my own humiliation And emerge forgiven By You and by me Amen
