forgive

Through my years of barbering, I’ve heard many confessions. I’ve commented and offered advice on some, while others, well, let me say that I could “write a book” and leave it at that.

Regardless of how trivial a confession seems, confessions are difficult, nonetheless.

For most, myself included, saying “I’m sorry” is difficult, but it can also be rewarding.

The other day I said something that I later regretted.

It was one of those occasions where you speak first and think later.

I guess we’ve all done that, right?

Jesus knows our burdens, and he knows how easy it is for us to stick our foot in our mouth, too.

I’m so thankful that I did not let my pride hold me back from doing the right thing –  confessing and apologizing.

The bible states:

Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.

 (Proverbs 16:18)

I’m so thankful that I surrendered my pride, and I don’t ever want to fall because of a haughty spirit.

How about you?

****

Dear God:

Thank you for allowing me to feel the effects of  a guilty conscious.

Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to right a wrong, and to say, “I’m sorry.” 

But above all, thank you for allowing me to be loved and forgiven.

I am truly blessed.

Amen
