This morning I woke up feeling the weight on my shoulders and wishing that I could just have a redo in life. Thinking about it now, I realized that I forget that Christ offers that “redo”. While I can’t erase all memories of the past, my perception of it is placed in the context of eternity. My future is completely altered. Nevetheless, it’s a morning like this that reminds me that I still have a lot of faith to grow. I’m tired and prayer came with difficulty. Oy… Monday….
10 I have seen the burden God has laid on the human race. 11 He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet[a] no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end. 12 I know that there is nothing better for people than to be happy and to do good while they live.
I’m wasting my time when I have to apologize a second time for the same thing after someone gives me a back-handed apology accepted. No use in asking for forgiveness to someone who doesn’t want to give it to you in the first place.
The best thing to do is some self-evaluation, and if by all objective means I could muster up… no fault is found, then “tough” to that person…
When I was younger in my faith, I saw the law of the Lord as constricting and something only to spur guilt within me. But as I grew older and somehow wiser (no thanks of my own), I began to see that His Words are indeed what this psalms says that they are and do.
Praises to the Father alone this morning. Bring refreshment to my soul and to those whom I love and pray for today.
