This Sunday was a special blessing! Even though I was raised as a Methodist – communion only a few times a year and confession being associated with only that service – I got the idea that confession and forgiveness were important in developing relationships. This learning was aided by my parents as no offense was punished as severely if you ‘fessed up’ and were truly contrite.
Today during confession I experienced a sense of such peace and blessing! It’s not that I’ve been a ‘naughty girl’ this week or even recently but the sense of ‘do over’, ‘start fresh’ and ‘be better’ was overwhelming and very needed.
Knowing our loving Abba was there holding me I am complete and ready to face the week renewed and refreshed.
