Thank you for redeeming me and accepting me to be your follower. Thank you for dying for my sins. Thank you for your love, forgiveness, mercy and protection.
I praise you, Lord, for arranging difficulties and failures for me to face so that I can know how limited and weak I am. Lord, You are blessing me with everything.
But I’m so sorry for coming short and for being selfish and self-centered. I didn’t take others interests and good into consideration. I forced others to suit my plan and follow my pace, I expected them to accept my excuses and forgive my faults, and I felt disappointed and angry when they couldn’t forgive me.
If I wear in their shoes, would I behave any better? If I couldn’t, how can I ask others to be perfect and forgiving when I committed sins? And how can I have bitterness for others’ being angry with me?
Nobody can save me and forgive me. Only you can.
As you have forgiven me, so I can forgive others. As you have loved me, so I can love others.
Lord, thank you for letting me know people are different and I can’t please everybody. And I shouldn’t please people instead of you.
Lord, I’ve done what I can do. Please take care of the rest. I trust you!
Thank you for your forgiveness and unconditional love, even when I’m so awful!
Please bless me with a peaceful heart and the wisdom to communicate with people with empathy, love and care.
In Your name, I pray, Amen!
