A week of utter weakness; a single hour of healing.
All that it needs is a single moment of praise and worship, and suddenly the shattered soul is healed.
As we sung our praises to God, what could I possibly offer to Him? I had no righteousness for the past week, virtually no prayers and Bible meditation. All that I offered to God was my broken heart – broken in true sorrowful repentance.
Psalms 51:17 (KJV) The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.
That offering was what God was looking to receive from me – no hypocrisy, no hiding, but complete honesty and surrender. And through that humble submission, God was able to do His wondrous work of reviving my once-wounded heart, ready again for service.
Psalms 51:12-14 (KJV) Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.
Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee.
Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, thou God of my salvation: and my tongue shall sing aloud of thy righteousness.
Saying sorry means you are acknowledging that you are wrong and you are ready to change your ways. Sometimes it means that if given the chance (like to turn back time), then you will undo your actions. Saying “sorry” means a lot to heal a broken relationship. Saying sorry is the first half — the second half is the forgiveness of the other party.
What if sorry is given but the mistake is repeated… again and again? Two reasons why that happens: 1.) The “sorry” is not sincere; 2.) The sorry is sincere but the person who said it suffers from a weakness that he could not overcome, which results in the mistake being repeated.
The question is: How much can you forgive?
Tougher questions: Does forgiveness has boundaries? Does forgiveness means having adjustments?
They are all over around me
Allover follow me
Putting me down
Trampling over me
Handing me over
To my enemies behind
What can I do
But to fight back
With my little strength
Yeah, with tiny force I got left
Back me up!
Yeah, You support me up
With You I can do this
And even more
Do not leave me behind
For I will not survive
Yet with You this is possible
And very much attainable
No matter how many setbacks
I have endured and will suffer
I will keep on coming
For His force is pushing
Forward, yeah, forward
And step towards victory
For I am not alone
You are with me!
