Lord, I know most times in the past I have felt so bad about my life and literally felt a pause in my progress. Unknown to me I was simply the cause. The validation of men towards me was more important to me than Your validation. As a result of that, I have ignorantly paused my life.
Today, I repent in dust and ash, and I pray to thee for mercy. Wash and cleanse me. Forgive me of all my follies and let my life experience Your ride.
