hello God

Hello God

You know I so often get distracted,
stumbling sideways, sliding off the mark.
My focus gets foggy and I lose sight of my goal.
Help me to re-train my mind,
to overrule those unhelpful habits
that so often pull me off course
and away from you.
Help me learn new ways of thinking
not to conform to the pattern of this world
but to be transformed by the renewing of my mind,
that my thoughts, words and actions
would reflect my calling and my desire
to follow you, to keep running the race
and not to get off-track.
Guide me to a strength that is not my own,
sourced from your Holy Spirit,
the One who comes alongside,
my counsellor, my guide, my coach
especially when my legs feel wobbly.
