My Father is great. Each step He molds me, each breath He guides me. And through out it all, I know it is already done. Let me simply enjoy the moment. This wonderful moment before the victory.
Let the Lord be my witness, and let me be His. Let Him see my heart. My actions may fail me, but let Him see that I intend for good and for God. May He forgive me for my failed intentions. And please remind me of the righteous ways. Whenever I’m in conflict, in confusion, let me find peace in You. And let me be a witness, to tell all the good in You, forever. Amen.
It is hard to let go and forget. Is it even possible to forget? Perhaps the phrase, “forgive and forget is wrong.” Indeed, we should forgive. But moving on and moving forward does not involve forget. Isn’t history about not forgetting, to learn from the mistakes in the past? I don’t think we should forget. We need to remember the wrongness in the action and event, but let go of the person who did it, and forgive in that sense.
We are connected to the world. Jesus wants us to love thy neighbor. Our enemies should be loved. It is hard. Taking responsibilities for others. But that is exactly what He did for us. And when it’s too hard, I can just cry on to Him, have Him take my burden. It is important to reach out to the world, be a part of it; and not stay “holy” by yourself. Thanks be to God.
Finding peace and the simpleness of life can be the greatest joy and blessing from Him. The sabbath is very much about that. Our days and confusion and worries can come to a halt on this one day. I thank my lord for this. Let me dwell in Your blessings, Your peaceful days ahead. Amen
Let the Lord be my witness. I may not always do the right thing. I fail constantly. But let the Lord see my heart. How I love Him. How I try my best to walk in His path. I know that is not enough. So Lord, please be my guide, guide my intentions toward the right actions.
Whenever I indulge myself in sin, I find myself regretful afterwards. I quickly turn back to God and kneel before Him. I thank Him for His forgiveness, for His love and mercy. Yet when I’m farther away from the obvious sins, I find myself forgetful, almost taking things for granted. I thank God less. I stop seeing the wonderful things He’s done for me. How can I be so ungrateful? And how can I be so weak when it comes to sin, so forgetful? God, let me be closer to You, so I think of You often, in sin or not. Let me dwell on the pleasure of pleasing You. I thank Thee. Amen.
