My One Joy
I write with my words all the time that these people who have warred against me when they have sought to end my life when they have chipped away at my heart they are not my enemies but they have been captured by the Enemy. I know this truly but I cannot help to feel the pain from the wounds they have left. My God, you have granted me repentance when I have sinned against you and you were quick to forgive me. Grant me forgiveness O Lord to give to them and would you save them, O God? you are the only God who is mighty to save. But if it be your will not to save them to you, then I pray as your Son prayed "Lord, forgive them for they do not know what they do." They have hurt me but you can forgive them and not punish them because I am no longer identify with those pains because I am only identify with the life, death resurrection and ascension of my only, only Lord Jesus Christ who lived and died for me. Praise be your holy name forever. Amen.
