Jealousy rips through me as I see others with what I want.
Emptiness invades me as I think of what I don’t have.
Self-pity envelops me like a heavy pall,
Until I remember where I find my true worth and
Strength: not in me, not in relationships, but in you.
Contrite heart and broken spirit,
Humbly I come to you for forgiveness.
Renewed by your grace and
Inspired by your love, I now can
Stand, ready to face the world, knowing
That with you, I have all I need.
