Dear Heavenly Father, Sweet Loving Presence; when I think of forgiveness, when I think of forgiving, when I think of being forgiven for I am a magnificent work in progress and I will make errors, I will make mistakes, I will make miss-steps, I will transgress, forgive me. For I am a magnificent work in progress not just a work in progress, not just a person that is moving along this path of Spirituality that I seem to feel that I can’t even be forgiven myself no, forgive me for I am learning as well.
Forgiveness is one of the most amazing sweetest feelings you can have in your toolbox of all good things. Forgiveness allows you see yourself as someone who is able to allow someone to be given something that is the prize jewel of any crown that they wear. To forgive someone, to forgive yourself, oh the thought of being forgiven, the thought of knowing that because I have miss-stepped, I have mistaken, I have misunderstood but I can be forgiven.
Yes, forgiveness is the sweetest sweetest taste of God’s good you can ever receive. Forgive me for I have transgressed, forgive me for I have miss-spoke, forgive me for I am a magnificent expression trying to find my way. Forgive me, I have forgiven you; isn’t there something that you feel in your heart that you just can’t seem to forgive yourself for. But I have forgiven you saith the Lord, I have forgiven you saith the Heavenly Spirit, l I have forgiven you so in that instance you must forgive others, forgive me for I am a magnificent expression trying to find my way.
Forgive me for I am a child of God’s looking to be better every day, forgive me for I know in my heart that what I did I did not mean to do. I like to say sometimes we are not in our right mind because if we were in our right mind sometimes we would not make the decisions, and the choices, and the miss-steps that we have made, but because we are a spiritual being experiencing a spiritual experience governed by spiritual laws we can be forgiven.
Forgive me as I have forgiven you; forgive me as I have felt the forgiveness of your love inspire my heart to forgive as well. Forgive me and allow me to see within my own life how the sweet taste of forgiveness has affected those around me. I have forgiven my Mother for being strict with me, I have forgiven my Father who was a heavy handed disciplinarian and I have forgiven myself who sometimes strayed off the path. But Lord because of that sweet taste of forgiveness, because of that sweet feeling of forgiveness, because of that sweet appeal that forgiveness gives us all.
I can try again, I can live anew, I can see myself being given another chance. Forgive me for I am a magnificent expression and I am a magnificent work in progress. Forgive me, forgive me, and so it is, Amen and amen
