God, untangle my heart. The knotted mess of it seems daunting to tackle.
I become overwhelmed and when I’m honest a little afraid of what lies within the knot that has remained so long. I have easily ignored the ball wound tightly together and moved on as if there’s nothing was there.
As I consider the intricate overlapping of experiences through life lived, my mistakes, and the ones others casts upon me, I sense how elaborate the knot has become, how it has so subtly taken up residence and hidden in the depths of my heart.
I understand the work of untangling will be difficult, messy and delicate but I’m ready for the unbinding – I’m ready to see clearly; be free; live in grace; and experience vulnerable love from you and those around me.
I’m ready to be tethered tightly to you instead of fear, the past and lies.
May the untangling of my heart be an offering to You as the love, grace and life you intended to flow from my heart now will . . . with the untangling.
