Generous in love—God, give grace! Huge in mercy—wipe out my bad record. Scrub away my guilt, soak out my sins in your laundry. I know how bad I’ve been; my sins are staring me down”. Psalm 51:1-3 (MSG)
One more time we have blown it, or so it feels. Said what we wished we hadn’t said; did what we would rather not have done. It happens—in a moment of anger, in a flash of frustration, and all that is left is the shame and guilt. Both may propel us to draw back and hide, however, the absolute best action to take, is to run straight into the arms of God!
It is here that you stand in the shower of His forgiveness, for it washes clean as nothing else will do. Soaking in His redeeming love will soften all the places that brought you to this point in the first place. He knows the story behind the pain; the fear or anger behind the action. He knows what happened to you that causes you to do what you do and with tender mercy and unending compassion, He understands.
Run to Him for healing; run to Him for freedom. Run straight into His arms of compassion for it is there that your true redemption is found. Everything else is just a myth. Jesus will mend what is broken in your life, and in the same way, He is able to mend the lives of those caught in your path of pain, for He is Redeemer of all things. Beloved one, there is nothing He cannot do.
Put on your robe of grace now beauty. It fits you perfectly and, lovely one, you look all brand new!
How comforting Father to read of the forgiveness that I have in You, through the shed Blood of Your Son, and our Saviour, Jesus Christ. You alone Jesus have done for me and for all mankind what no one else could ever do.
Generous God I come to You one more time, to ask that You would right the wrongs—those I have done and those done to me—and grant me by Your grace a chance to begin anew.
Though it is often hard to believe that such forgiveness and healing could be possible; that You would wipe away my sins and shortcomings—with the holy faith You have given me and because this is Your will—I receive.
I bless You Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Thank You that in Your kindness, and through Your redeeming love—greater than I could ever comprehend—it could be so.
