My Lord, my God. I want an end to all this fighting. You made me to share your love. You made me to encourage and comfort in your name. To write devotionals that will give strength and assurance of your love to those who need it. How I love that work you’ve given me, Lord!

And yet, I also need to reveal wrongdoings. I need to express my pain. I cannot help but show anger at those things that took away the life I had once known. I need to be heard.

But give me peace too, Lord. Please?

I give myself to you.
