Just As You Are

by Jill Lemming

Destructive thoughts within our minds
can keep us in despair...
those doubts and insecurities
are not worth the pain they bear.

It's sad to carry baggage
that causes grief and shame...
and in time we come to realize
we have ourselves to blame.

We can choose our way of thinking
and ask God to give us peace...
as we pray for a healthy attitude,
our negative thoughts will cease.

These human hearts are fragile
and sometimes we can't see...
it takes some effort on our part
to find worth and security.

Don't let those demons haunt you
and keep you in the dark...
just know that God, who formed you,
loves you just the way you are.
