The Knots

I've been searching my mind for what to blog about next. Honestly I really enjoy blogging even if no one hardly reads it. I've had a lot on my mind (which isn't new) which has caused me to have a lot of "down" evenings (also not new). I have a friend who sends me about 10 forwards at a time, and in between the lame (yes some are lame) forwards, cute animal pictures (which I love, please feel free to forward them to me), inaccurate warnings, and incorrect political stuff, this showed up, and it spoke to me.

Before I post this, I do HATE posting forwards. It goes with status updates and tweets just being song lyrics: aren't you clever enough to write your own thoughts?! But I've done this once before, and I've been known to get some lyrics going in my tweets, so I beg your forgiveness, and I'll be original some other time. (I do have a song I really really am thinking about posting...)

Religious, faithful, or not, please read this. I think it will speak to many about what they want to be rid of in their lives like it's spoken to me.

The Knots Prayer
Dear God:
Please untie the knots
that are in my mind,
my heart and my life.
Remove the have nots,
the can nots and the do nots
that I have in my mind.
Erase the will nots,
may nots,
might nots that may find
a home in my heart.
Release me from the could nots,
would nots and
should nots that obstruct my life.
And most of all,
Dear God,
I ask that you remove from my mind,
my heart and my life all of the am nots
that I have allowed to hold me back,
especially the thought
that I am not good enough.

What 'nots' are you needing untied?
