Life's Strife

Here's a poem that I wrote a long time ago, but which still makes sense to me as a prayer for today.

Life's Strife

O Lord,
Forgive me for striving,
For acting as if I had to earn the love
That you poured out so freely,
Dying on the cross for me.

But also
Forgive me for not striving,
For giving up and giving in,
For yielding up the righteousness
You died to give.

Help me
To rest in your love,
To strive with all that I am
To let your freely given love
Take full control.
