Lord, I am sorry

My Lord and my God, you have lavished me with your love. Treated me kindly and gracefully. Loved me selflessly and unconditionally. Undeservingly, shown me many times favor and mercy.  Being the one who works things out for my good. And freely bestowed great opportunities.

I have been ungrateful. Taking advantage and being unappreciative of your love.  You plead with me by the promptings of your Spirit. You say, “I love you with an everlasting love. And ”Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.”

And I continue to be unfaithful. Offering insincere prayers without a broken heart and contrite spirit.  Not having a genuine heartfelt sorrow of repentance.  To mourn with a heavy grief the hurt I have caused you. 

I have only thought of myself. Selfishly, only considering my wants and needs. Not caring about anybody else a part from myself. So much so, that I am in my own way. I am sabotaging myself. 

 I am sorry Lord. Please help me. “Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.” Give me new thoughts and desires for a righteousness, which comes by faith alone. In Jesus name I pray amen.
