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, the would nots and should nots that obstruct my life.
And most of all, Dear God,
I ask that you remove from my mind all of the "am nots" that I have allowed to hold me back,
Especially the thought that I am not good enough.
I read this prayer at the beginning of our adoption journey and am still praying it, today. Not just for myself, but for every family who loves a child, but cannot see past the knots in their way. Allow God to untie your knots and free you to do a work for him. You are called and chosen! Let's live a life with No KNOTS for the glory of God!
