“Forgive me, Father, for I have sinned. It has been a long time since I have confessed my sins.”
I allowed myself to again fall trap to sins of man, and let them distract me from the path in which you would have me walk.
I allowed myself to be seduced yet again by men who through what appears to be worldly stature or success appear to be wise, and in that appearance may offer up a path or direction for me.
I looked to them for answers when I must only look to You. For I have freely given myself to You, asked You for guidance, and knowingly as well, have freely volunteered in Your army.
I let myself be seduced by the arrogance of pride, and through its soft persuasions allowed myself to take my eye off of you and look even again into the storm, and this has caused me to sink.
Godly direction and gifts can only be obtained from God. Men can only give constructs of hands and these ultimately reveal themselves as idols!
Our time, hopes and prayers are treasures of our own soul, and “where we put out treasures, there our hearts will be also”!
I am so foolish to even for a moment take my eyes off of you. Pull me yet again up out of the water for I want to walk with you again, no matter where it brings me even on the water, even in the storm, even in the middle of the sea.
