Words of Wisdom for St. Patrick's Day,
from Gary Mueller, Arkansas UMC Conference Bishop.
A Sunday prayer
I try my best, I really do.
But when I’m honest with myself, I see the truth.
It’s not pretty.
In fact, it’s painful.
I hurt you deeply. I hurt others deeply. I hurt myself deeply.
Forgive me, Lord, please forgive me.
But more than that, Lord, transform me.
From the top of my head to the tips of my toes
From the inside out.
Every part of me.
Not because I do it on my own.
But because I am filled by the gift of your love.
Love that accepts me just the way I am.
Love that will never let go of me.
Love that is not content to leave me the way I am.
So today, Lord, let me experience the depth and breadth of your love.
The power of your forgiveness.
And the joy of your new life.
I’m ready, Lord.
I’m so ready.
