Finding Forgiveness

January 10, 2019 | Author: | Posted in F, New Beginnings

Today’s devotional reflection on New Beginnings is about: Finding Forgiveness

13 “He who conceals his transgressions will not prosper, but he
    who confesses and forsakes them will obtain mercy.”

    – Proverbs 28:13, RSVCE | NJB

Finding Forgiveness (New Beginnings Devotional Reflection)

Leslie kept getting a message that her computer’s hard drive was full. When she showed it to her son, he explained that she needed to get rid of some computer files. He advised her to start with old videos she’d downloaded and no longer needed.

As Leslie watched the files delete, she thought about her life. There were many things she wished she could delete—the painful divorce she’d walked through, the harsh words she’d spoken to her daughter that morning, the selfish choices she’d made a few months ago.

That’s when the words of Proverbs 28:13 came to mind. She realized that forgiveness was God’s way of allowing for new beginnings.

Because of Jesus’s sacrifice on the Cross, everything you’ve done wrong is covered in rivers of grace and mercy. In Isaiah 43:25, God says, “I, even I, am he who blots out your transgressions, for my own sake, and remembers your sins no more.

God, thank You for Your forgiveness!
Thank You for new mercies each moment.
I’ve hurt others and myself by the choices I’ve made.
Show me to repair these relationships and walk
in righteousness. I want to honor You in
everything I say and do.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
