Forgiven

28 Jul

Forgive

Confessing our mistakes is the beginning of the healing process. Forgiving others as we have been forgiven is the next. Lord, destroy the idea that we have in our mind that our sin is somehow less sinful than the sins of others. You told us that the most important commandment is to Love our neighbor as ourselves, not judge them as we should be judged. But Lord, we forget and we hold onto grudges. Help us to let go this baggage that weighs us down from experiencing Your presence in our lives. The good news is that it gets better. It does get better because of the intercession of Jesus Christ who gives us never ending grace from Almighty God: A grace that surpasses all understanding and reaches beyond the confines of time. You have forgiven us no matter what went wrong in this life. And it will be an even better place here on earth when we extend that same grace and forgiveness to our neighbor that was gifted to us by God. We are all prodigal children scared to be rejected by the One that we ran away from. Yet You, God, are always running towards us, desperate for us to open our eyes and to receive You. Help us Lord to go back to the simplicity of the gospel. The truth that You, God, are love in every form and that You do not offer us just a piece of grace but You give us grace in abundance. So when we think that what we do in this life is not important, then remind us just how much influence we have on the lives of others. We never know who might experience love, who might learn from love, or how they experience love. We can just “love.” So let’s drop the stones of condemnation and judgement for others as we would want those stones to be dropped for ourselves and our sins.
