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.
