My Prayer „You are allowed to be“ for smallgroups and services

I am happy and thankful beyond measure because of Deepl.
I had the idea of translating my prayers one by one, and when I was about to start, it struck me:
I thought that I would never be able to manage this task so that it would sound like proper english. I’m absolutely capable of writing this little introduction without help, no problem, and no dictionary needed. But a decent prayer, that sounds smooth and „correct“? No way.

So I was overjoyed when I remembered Deepl:
I could use the translator and edit the results, if I would find phrases that wouldn’t satisfy me. So that’s what I did, I’m very content and almost sure of a good result (-;
If any faults occure to anyone, please let me know, so I can correct my failings. Thank you and please use my prayers wherever they suit you! Please refer to me and use them only in a private, non commercial manner, thanks.

You are allowed to be

You are allowed to be
as you are, where you are,
that you are here with us, is a gift.

You are allowed to be,
with all your questions, feelings and insecurities,
between growth and stagnation.

You are allowed to be,
even without achievement and proof
that you are worth it,
you are loved even before you were born.

You are allowed to be
while you find the right shape for you-
the past is over, the new is not yet tangible.

You are allowed to be
as you are, because your heavenly Father
lovingly holds and accompanies you every day.
With every step.
