Oh Lord, thank You for Your mercy. I don’t know what I would be doing right now if I was still in my state of brokenness and without any mercy shown. Surely, I would be left in a very difficult place, where depression would have set in by now. For I would have hoped You would forgive a wretched person like me. However, this did not happen and You did extend your mercy and forgiveness anyways. No matter what I had previously done, all those sins were washed away in Your blood. Thank You, Lord. I am in such a better place now. There is so much joy in my life than ever before. I love to walk in Your ways, for it does bring happiness into my life. I am not left in guilt or shame, but only peace. However, the opposite can be said when I decide to not forgive as You have forgiven me. In these moments, I am not the person I should be for You, but the opposite. Instead of showcasing kindness and compassion, I’ve shown anger and disdain towards certain individuals. And for this I am sorry. I can’t believe that I could be so arrogant and haughty over such a small thing when You are so willing to forgive my sins. For this reason, I knew that I was not acting like You would at all. I was self-centered, not selfless. So in my brokenness, once again, I came to you in my remorse. How could I stoop down to such a level of not showing kindness and mercy to those that deserve it? It was then that I realized what I had done and ran to call and see the person I have or they have offended. No matter the differences, I told the people that I love them. That there were no more hard feelings towards them at all. This I know came from You, God. With the Holy Spirit present in me, I was able to break down the walls that were built up and restore the friendships that were lost over time. Thank You God for giving me direction on this matter. I love You. You are my deliverer. Surely, Your mercy endures forever. Amen.
