Read Psalm 130
130 From the depths of my despair I call to you, Lord.
2Hear my cry, O Lord;
listen to my call for help!
3If you kept a record of our sins,
who could escape being condemned?
4But you forgive us,
so that we should stand in awe of you.
5I wait eagerly for the Lord’s help,
and in his word I trust.
6I wait for the Lord
more eagerly than watchmen wait for the dawn—
than watchmen wait for the dawn.
7Israel, trust in the Lord,
because his love is constant
and he is always willing to save.
8He will save his people Israel
from all their sins.
Psalm 130 reminds us not to live in guilt - but to accept the forgiveness that God offers. "He is always willing to save. He will save his people..." (7-8)
Thank you for your forgiveness.
Thank you for the strength that you promise me to help me love as you call me to love.
