Thank You for this one reading these words. Thank You for making them in Your likeness and image. Thank You for loving them and me, even when we’re at the lowest, at our very worst. Thank You for forgiving us of our trespasses. Lord, there are many. I’m grateful that You can wipe them new with a simple “Forgive me, God.” I’m grateful that You were and are willing to forgive, that You set the standard and set it well. Teach this one whose eyes are here and me to run the race well with the baton of forgiveness. I pray that if we drop it, we’ll pick it up and run with perseverance. Prepare us to hear Your words, Lord. We are Yours.
In Jesus’ Name,
