Daily Devotional – 1/29/13 “Father, please forgive me!”

Father, please forgive me, I didn’t mean to question your will because I know that you’d take care of me if I would just keep still. Father, please forgive me for even doubting your love for me when you didn’t have to let me open my eyes this morning to even see. Father, please forgive me for the times I don’t thank you for the things you’ve already done when you sacrificed your all by sending your only Son. Father, please forgive me for the momentary moments when I don’t offer you my praise, when you’ve removed my filthy rags, cleaned my dirty body and my bowed down head you raised. Father, please forgive me for thinking I could do this thang alone, when you’ve said that I could come to you and lay my burdens at your throne. Father, please forgive me for not trusting you when you blessed me with my gift, when you said that you would catch me if I fall over man made cliffs. Father, please forgive me for being afraid to step out on my faith when you’ve always had me covered by your Mercy and your Grace. Father, please forgive me for running from you and for turning to so called friends when you are the only one who keeps forgiving me when I continue to sin. Father, please forgive me for being ungrateful on this journey you’ve paved and please forgive me for taking advantage of the blessings you’ve gave. Father, please forgive me for not accepting my purpose and for ignoring your call and please forgive me for not accepting your hand after the times that I fall. Father please forgive me, I didn’t mean to act this way, it’s just that times sometimes get too hard for me to hear what you have to say. Father, please forgive me in advance for the moments that I may doubt and please forgive me for the times I may need to cry, scream or shout. Father, please forgive me; please forgive your child; I’m learning, I’ll do better, I can’t lose your love; I just want to be the person that you’ll be proud of.
