A Sunday Prayer 4/30/17

My God,

Sometimes it hits me just how much I’ve failed, fallen short, messed up, hurt others and disappointed You.

It’s so difficult to deal with this reality. So I do a really good job of explaining it away, looking for the upside, making excuses and doing everything I can to convince myself it could have been worse. But what I really need to do is just admit what You and I both know – I’ve done it yet again.

When I’m willing to get this honest, the most amazing thing happens. I am overwhelmed by Your love, I experience Your forgiveness, I receive second, third, fourth and one-hundredth chances and I experience the miracle of how You never give up on me.

Thank You, Lord, thank You for love that is so real, powerful and transforming it even works on me!

Amen.
