Teach Me What You Have Taught Me 10,000 Times

In this time, teach me again what you have taught me ten thousand times,

In this time, help me to not run away as I've ran away more times than I can remember,

Still my mind so that I can listen to my heart.

Mold me into the person I have craved to be since as far back as I can remember,

Hold me in the places where I have been wounded so that I can move past victimization,

Help me to slow down, quiet down so I can hear your words of love and wisdom from my heart into my mind.

I have deviated ten thousand times,

I will rest in You instead of stretching out for comfort elsewhere, even if it kills me,

I will begin anew and be refreshed, reborn.
