today i extend compassion to myself
The roughness of the world is hard on the heart; mine has been tested, as has everyone's. Today I acknowledge any bruises on my soul and deliver them to God. I know that in His hands they will be healed.
I own my pain, that I might heal whatever darkness it has spawned in me. I pray that neither others nor I will be affected by my mistakes. May my own compassion for what i have suffered help heal me where I hurt.
I surrender to You
The scars upon my heart,
The memories that sear,
And the sorrows that remain.
Please place Your hand upon me
And miraculously heal me,
That I might rise from the ashes
Of my past
And experience new life.
