I leave so many mistakes in my wake that I have grown to love mornings. I consider each one a second chance to do better and walk more closely in God’s plan for me. Learning from our mistakes leads us to wiser choices later. But first we must pay attention to our mistakes. I know that it can seem best to bury them or leave them for others to stumble across. But if we claim them and consider them teachers, we can grow.
God is in the business of transformation. Acknowledge those mistakes and then release them to his custody. And in the morning use your second chance……
I’ve been asking God to be with me a lot lately, to wrap me in his full presence, and to help me feel closer to normal. I want healing from soul to bone, from mind to skin, from prayer to truth. My focus on this is all consuming.
Thirst for mercy comes on so violently when want and worry leave us stripped of all other resources. I know God wants us to seek to be filled and satiated before we stand in drought’s ruin. Go to his mercy today. Give yourself over to God as a daily practice and preserve the reserve of your soul’s only source of renewal.
Dear Lord, you must be tired of seeing these mistakes in my life. Forgive me for the sins that weigh me down. I give the errors, harsh words, white lies, bad decisions, and angry thoughts to you. I did them all. Please transform my mistakes today into stronger character and wisdom tomorrow. Lord, I come to you with the hurts I recognize and those I have ignored. May your mercy rush over me, and may it bring healing.
In Jesus name I pray
Restore us, O God; make your face shine upon us, that we may be saved.
Heal me, O Lord, and I will be healed; save me and I will be saved, for your are the one I praise.
