I Am So Sorry

My focus should have been on You
And what You’d have me to do
Instead, I focused on myself
And forgot how much I was blessed
I am so sorry

Is it anything I can say or do?
That would make me right with You?
You gave all that I did need
But I got consumed with greed
I wanted to do things my way
I didn’t wait to hear what You had to say
And for that
I am so sorry

Nothing I did prospered
Because I didn’t see You first
How I long to be forgiven
I really need a new start in living
I pray for a new way
I am so sorry for my deeds
Forgive me Lord please.

Scripture Reference: Psalm 51

Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin. For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me. Psalm 51:2-3

Another Chance

I’m so sorry for what I’ve done
I’m so sorry, my heart is torn
I’m asking forgiveness
I’ve created a mess
This is not the first time
But the third
I should have learned my lesson
To ask for another chance
I’ve got a lot of nerves

But You’re not a God of limited chances
Your mercy endureth forever
If only I had made better decisions
If only I had listened
If only I had acknowledged You
And leaned not to my own understanding (Proverbs 3:5)

But now I’m in a bind
And I’m pleading one more time
Please forgive me
I am so sorry.

Insight
God is a God of many chances. 1 John 1:9 says If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteouness.
