Dear Lord,

You know, lately I have been a real crab. I’m feeling personally offended by things that have nothing to do with me. I am annoyed with the world around me and how deeply dark and sinful it is. I’m frustrated by the pain and hardships my friends and family are experiencing. In short, I’m demanding heaven right now in my heart.

But heaven isn’t right now.

Nope, this kinda feels like hell in fact.

Please remind me of your goodness. Please lift my head and show me your beauty. Please remind me that only You redeem. Please connect my heart with the joy of your salvation so that I can sleep in peace.

But don’t take away my longing to throw it all off to be with You in perfection.

Amen.
