I am finding no matter how I pray this simple prayer, “Lord, please undo what I have done”, He doesn’t make it go away. Even God, Who is still on the throne, cannot wrong a right. He will however, forgive me and grant me mercy so I can live with the grace to keep on keepin’ on.
The message I hear is, “Child I created you of human flesh. You will always let your brother or sister down here and there, but look for the lesson as you weather the storm. This is merely a season to endure and I will see you through this too. This is not happening to you, but rather for you”.
I close my eyes as a tear runs down my cheek. With tear-stained eyes, I want to trust in what I believe, have faith in what I cannot see, the courage and strength to accept that I am right where I belong.
Life certainly has bizarre twists in its presence of uncertainty. The unknown is something I once feared, but today I embrace the obstacles and challenges that lurk around every corner. These are the moments I draw closer to You and my trust grows. If I supply the willingness, You will always supply the power.
As I look out through the windshield of my life, I can almost see the grand design for me as I discover the next miracle that awaits my participation. Maybe tonight I will not pray to The Lord to undo what I have done, but rather ask Him to show me how to do better moving forward.
Forgiveness is a selfless act that requires nothing more than a heart that has been injected with love. It frees the one from the anger they have shackled their-selves to. If my Heavenly Father can forgive my transgressions and love me anyway, then I know that I am deserving.
