Lord, have mercy.
Christ, have mercy.
Make wide the way of repentance in us,
and graciously close the mouth of the accuser.
Deliver us from evil, and lead us not into temptation.
Deliver us from remorse and from whatever is remorseful in us.
Deliver us from all that darkens and dehumanizes us.
For yours is the fullness and flourishing of life, forever and ever.
Mercy, everyone wants it. How quick are you to give it? Sure its easy for me to show mercy to people I like and to strangers. It is a whole different animal when it comes to my enemy. So I pray that I can have more mercy toward everyone.
Today was a really good day. I did everything that I was asked to do. I even ordered my cap and gown. I notified family and friends. I went on a nice walk and met up with an old exercise buddy. We had a great talk(she had lost 120 pounds with gastric bypass). I found out that no matter how much you have to lose or how you lose it, we all have the same struggles. I don’t know how long it will take but I hope to tackle my room tomorrow and of course put away laundry. I am started to feel better as each day goes on. That is a true blessing.
