Oh Lord, I pray that we will learn from Your mighty hand and not from ourselves and others instead. There are good things to learn from in this world, even from school and books, but none of that should take away from what You can teach us. I see You, God, as someone I can trust in for answers. People have betrayed me over time and some have led me to follow their lies, but this has never happened with You. Sure, certain people have said sorry for their wrongdoings, and I am happy to forgive and forget. You do this for me and others, so it is my pleasure to forgive one another. I am not much different when I am living for the flesh. I say and do things that hurt people and don’t understand how wrong I really was until You convict me of my sins. So yes, I pray that people will forgive me, as You have already. There is so much I wish I could forget and wish it was not part of my past, but it is. I have to live with it, but that does not mean that I have to let it deter my walk with You, Jesus. As You have forgiven me, even from the east to the west, I forgive myself. This is difficult, for inside I see a wretched sinner who doesn’t deserve forgiveness and mercy. However, I do know that You died for me. You paid the penalty for my sins on the cross that I might live again in harmony with You. I trust in You, God. You have made me the person I am today. If I am helping others and doing kind acts of service, You have led me in those things. I rejoice with others who are saved and pray for there’s and other’s needs also. Help those people who are distraught and need You, God. I love You. Amen.
2 Corinthians 1:9-11 (KJV)
9 But we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves, but in God which raiseth the dead:
10 Who delivered us from so great a death, and doth deliver: in whom we trust that he will yet deliver us;
11 Ye also helping together by prayer for us, that for the gift bestowed upon us by the means of many persons thanks may be given by many on our behalf.
It is important in life that we put our trust in God, not always people. People do fail us in life, but God never fails us.
