Day 3: Pardon

pardon

: the excusing of an offense without exacting a penalty

: excuse or forgiveness for a fault, offense, or discourtesy

PRAY: I thank you today, God, for the gift of your pardon. I repent of all the ways I have sinned against you and pray that you would cleanse my heart of all iniquity. As I consider this year’s election, Lord, I pray that you would pardon your people in America. Cleanse our hearts of iniquity, and rebuild us as a unified Body known by our love in this nation today.

Jeremiah 33:7-8

“And I will cause the captives of Judah and the captives of Israel to return, and will rebuild those places as at the first. I will cleanse them from all their iniquity by which they have sinned against Me, and I will pardon all their iniquities by which they have sinned and by which they have transgressed against Me.”

Well loved! I have been blessed all my life to be surrounded by family and friends that nurtured, supported and loved me into the person that I have become. That love has sustained me throughout whatever circumstance I have found in life. It is the greatest gift that one can give and the essential ingredient to living life with no regrets. I reached this conclusion while lying in a hospital bed on life support for 70 days. Under those circumstances I dealt with the essential ingredients of my life. What was important? Why was I alive? What did my life mean?
