My struggle with self assessment.

Diagnosis

by Unspoken94

If
My faith
Declares that God
Has this intimate relationship
With me,

Then,
Why do I have such a
Difficult time being intimate?

If
I am so loved by God,

Then,
Why do I imprison
My love from others?

If
God overcame the distance
Between me and myself,

Then,
Why do I lack the courage
To take the initiative and
Overcome the distance
Between myself and those I care about?

If
I am able to experience
God's forgiveness in my life

Then,
Why will I not forgive others?

If
I have experienced
God's grace,

Then,
For God's sake,
Why can I not be gracious
To others?

It
Is from these tormenting questions
I have learned that the most
Important ingredient in helping
Someone find wellness and wholeness
Is not in the prescription,
But in the diagnosis.
