"Worthy,worthy, You are worthy, Worthy is the Lord"
Thank you Heavenly Father for loving us so much that you sent your son Jesus down to die for our sins. He gave his life for us and in turn Lord with your help and guidance I want to live my life everyday for you.
I have been a Christian for awhile now and yet I still let Satan bog me down with the mistakes of my past. No matter how times I've asked God to forgive me, I still let Satan allow that guilt to creep back in to my mind. Even though I know that when we truly are sorry for our sins and ask for His forgivness He wipes the slate clean for us-He forgives and then forgets. I don't know about any of you but I wish I could do the same; there are things in my past that I am far from being proud of, so then why can't I let go. Plain and simple; Satan loves guilt-he feeds off it. So today before Communion I asked God to help me let go off all the guilt and shame that I have felt for so long. I realize now further in my walk that I shouldn't ask to forget my sins and I don't want to. I think by forgetting them all together I wouldn't be able to give advice to someone who really needs it. All the things I've been through in my life have been for a reason, I have grown so much in my walk and believe me there is still plenty of room for me to continue growing.
So THANK YOU LORD for never giving up on me and forgiving me when I could not yet forgive myself. Thank you for your love and mercy, and for helping to grow and to use the mistakes of my past to help someone else in need. Father I give my life to you, I surrender it all to you, I'm ready to do your will-whatevery it may be. I know that right now in my life you have called me to ministry and without putting ALL of my trust and faith in you I will not be the servant that you have called me to be so...
"Here I am take me, take me, as an offering. Here I am giving, every heartbeat for your glory, take me."
In Jesus name...Amen
