At times I have made too much of myself –
Arrogantly reaching beyond my station and defying you –
And, at time, I have made too little of myself –
Allowing self-pity and victimization to diminish your image in me.
Please forgive me.
Help me to be content
As merely a human being,
Created in your image and likeness
Destined and designed to shadow you in this world.
Make me whole.
Help me to find my true self in you
Even as you continue to grow inside of me,
And are birthed in me,
And are represented through me to the world.
Please put me back together again -
In the way you first made me -
And let me experience the pleasure
Of wholeness in you.
