Psalm 25:11- For the honor of your name, O Lord, forgive my many, many sins. (New Living Translation)
Herbert Bowen, Jr.
Voices Against the Grain Devotional Writer
We’re human. We’re flawed. We don’t deserve grace. For some seek to clear their conscience, while others wallow in their own slop. Hence, their writhing around is nothing more than a mechanism to quiet their burdensome Spirit. For, forgiveness can’t knock on their door, due to their unwillingness to answer. Why? ‘Cuz the door must remain closed so they can hide their actions within the darkness. Light is their enemy because it breeds a constant fear of realization, to where they stand on moral ground. Light is their enemy because it temporarily blinds them to seeing the errors in their ways. For in the end they seek to satisfy THEIR APPETITES. But no matter what, the Lord waits with his inhuman patience, to take our sins and eradicate them. Therefore, to be forgiven by our Heavenly Father shouldn’t be taken lightly. The reason we should break our hearts with sadness to ruminate over the sins we’ve committed. Amen
