First let me start out by saying how hard it was to do this one today. My parents were here and we started the day by going to Dinosaur World, which through my normal routine off. By the time we got home, I was exhausted and actually took a nap. I am in that tired, lethargic, icky feeling and just want to curl on the couch and not move until bed. But I’m doing this blog/devotion. I have to. So here we go!
Day Three: July 28, 2012.
Title: Carrying Our Precious Possessions.
Scripture: Romans 1:9, God is my witness, whom I serve with my spirits in the gospel of His Son, that without ceasing I make mention of you always in my prayers.
Question: What areas do I need to ask God forgiveness in?
Reflection: The reading tells the story of the women of Weinsberg who carried their husbands, sons and brothers out of the city before the new German king took control of the city. (Look it up, if you have no clue what I’m talking about). Then another story of how at a conference a plea of a mother and father and prayers of twenty thousand believers helped the son finally ask for forgiveness for the sin was living in and give his life to God.
As far as the answer to the question, I need to ask God for forgiveness in all areas of my life. There are so many things that I just basically hate myself for. I have failed and falter too much. It’s really unacceptable. I’m ashamed of stuff I’ve said, done, thought. I need forgiveness.
