...forgiveness. It seems every single day I stumble. Something that I should not be doing I seem to do anyway.
It seems that people think since I am in the role that I am, I should be perfect. I strive to do the best I can to get closer to my God. Every day, I strive to be holy but I fall. I fall and it hurts.
There are days the scars seem deeper than others. I make mistakes, I get up, but these scars remain. There are days I know everyone can see my scars. Thank you, God, for those scars. They remain as a constant reminder that not only am I a sinner but I am redeemed by our Savior's healing power. The same God who raised Lazarus has come for me. The same Lord, who made the blind man see, has opened my eyes. A loving God who would do anything for me, even sending his only begotten Son to save me.
I am a sinner. I am broken. I am frail but I am also saved by the grace of God. Our salvation happened on the cross. So I live my days and look to the promise of resurrection. I am a sinner...but I will not accept that as my fate. I know God has plans for me. I know they are for happiness and joy. We praise you Jesus for your sacrifice and the forgiveness that You have given to all us. I am a sinner and I am forgiven and for that, I am grateful.
"O DEATH, WHERE IS YOUR VICTORY? O DEATH, WHERE IS YOUR STING?" 1 Corinthians 15:55
What does tomorrow hold for you? how will you make it different?
St. Michael the Archangel, protect us in this battle against sin!
