Today Lord I remember….

Your great love for me!
How You suffered greatly at the hands of men, so that I may be healed; restored and set free! To love and live with You.

Today Lord as I recall how You suffered….

I know I can unite my sufferings with Yours.  My physical pains, the hurt of being betrayed, abandoned. Of unforgiveness, of feeling inadequate, incomplete. Of being taunted and mocked. Of mental anguish and depression. There is No human hurts and pains that You did not go through or understand. Through Your sufferings I can make sense of mine. And I lift them up to You. I offer them for all who suffer injustice and pain. I offer them for the conversion of sinners. I offer them for peace in the world.

Today Lord I mourn….

For my heinous sins committed against You. For my habitual sins and my weakness of falling back into them; the lack of conviction in Your love to overcome them. For all the times I have failed to do and act for You and my brethren.

Today Lord I ponder and reflect… 

On Your love and will for me. Amen
