I had just written and published an article titled “Our Father”. I have since deleted the article.
It was a beautiful description of how God loves his children. And as I wrote it I had my eye firmly fixed on the Glory that is the Heavenly Father.
But I have sinned and I am mortified. For as I wrote the article I neglected the Holy Son.
When I finished the article, I looked up in my soul to our Father to give him praise and thanks. But condemnation fell on my heart.
It was clear what I had done. And only two possible repairs were offered. Either revise the article, injecting the beautiful Lord Jesus, or delete it entirely.
I tried to revise the article, but could not. I had left no room for our Lord.
There are three hundred two copies of that article. And every single one of you have my deepest apology.
Everything I write is a reflection of what fills my heart. And now something is exposed the disquiets my soul.
Forgiveness is offered by the humble Lord Jesus himself. I do not ask forgiveness from my brothers and sisters. If it is given it is gladly received.
But the diligent work to repair what is lacking within me, that I should do such a thing, darkens my entire day.
By His Grace
