“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.”
1 John 1:9
Today, I want to talk about backsliding. Even we as Christians are still not perfect. There are days when we may find ourselves reverting back to an old sin, but God is there to call upon to ask His forgiveness. Sometimes we might feel confused and guilty after committing the unforgivable given that we’re supposed to be a new person, but the entire transformation is a time building process.
Newborn babes still need time to adjust to their new life. It is not an excuse to backslide, but whenever you feel like you are falling, do not be afraid to call on His wonderful Name.
I would give everything that I own
I would give up my life, my heart, my home
I would give everything, Jesus, that I own
Lord, just to have you
Back in my life again
Just to talk to you
Sunday Songs was co-hosted by Rosema last year and I’ve decided to continue it.
Short Story #11
Glassy green eyes met icy gray ones across the mahogany desk, the only thing separating the men and the thickening atmosphere in the small, but cramped room.
“This can only work one way,” the goon in the blue powder suit from behind the desk rose to his full height thinking that it would send a threat to the man still seated in the ugly plush green chair. The gray-eyed man didn’t flinch. He just sat there with a smirk on his stern, but handsome face that the goon wished he could wipe off with just a backhand slap, but he had heard things about this Monsieur. “You have to agree with my terms otherwise the deal is off.”
Jean-Pierre Papin sadistically smiles. “I work only for money. If you want loyalty, get a dog.”
“They say you are the best!”
“And I am the best, but I don’t work on your terms. I work on mine. If you think you can do the job better than me, then you have no need for my help.”
You have the choice to erase one incident from your past, as though it never happened. What would you erase and why?
Looking back, I must say that I’ve come a long way. The paths I took and the mistakes I committed, makes me who I am today. There are days when I still struggle, but if I have to choose one incident from my past to erase, I won’t choose anything.
If you could have any author –living or dead – write your biography, who would you choose?
Simple: James Patterson. He seems to be good at doing this lately anyway.
