Eternal Father, you alone fully know my past and the deeds I have done. I ask that you remove from my burdened mind the guilt and darkness of those days.
Having been set free from this pain, I earnestly want you to direct my steps. The future belongs to you and there is nothing more from me that would desire the dark. I have had enough of sin and the vain delights of this world. I am yours forever.
Lord, I struggle with my depression. It trips me up at times and I let it take control. Forgive me. Unless you bring your light I will continue to struggle further while sinking deeper. I so need your help in this.
Help me to reach forward to the prize of the upward call of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. Help me to forget the ugly past and lunge for the tape. Amen.
“I’m not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made. But I am well on my way, reaching out for Christ, who has so wondrously reached out for me. Friends, don’t get me wrong: By no means do I count myself an expert in all of this, but I’ve got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward—to Jesus. I’m off and running, and I’m not turning back.”
