    I Don't Really Have A Strong Faith; Although Mostly Present, It Wavers...

    ...but I know He exists, and that He is there for me. Sometimes though, I don't feel Him - and it's not really his fault. I honestly am self-absorbed, at times, and I worry about 'trivial' things that I lose focus. The distance is possibly imagined, and it probably stems from...

    Unhappy With Where You Are?

    Where we are in life is exactly where we want to be. Not necessarily because it's what we want but because it's good enough. When good enough isn't good enough anymore THAT'S when we start living :)

    God, Im Sorry I Wanted My Boyfriend More Than You

    God, when I met him, I could sense You telling me 'No. He's not the one and its not the time.' But I was so desperate for love, I got with him anyway. I put You,  my friends, and even MYSELF beneath him. I'm ashamed of what I allowed myself to do, both to You and my friends...

    I Know I'Ve Never Been Enough... But I Want To Change

    I know I've been unworthy of help from God. It's not that I don't believe in Him. It's not that I've done the most terrible sin. I think it is because I have never been enough of a child for Him. I seek His help only when I am in a really great trouble. And I hadn't lived up to...
