Our agony lies in our need for forgiveness

(A reflection on Micah 7:18-20)

Could we face another day if we live deprived of God's Mercy?

Who is there like our Father who removes guilt and pardons sins?
Who is there who delights in clemency,
and who will again and again
have compassion for each one of us, His children?

God, our Father, is waiting to forgive...
is waiting to pour out His gracious Mercy upon us...
like a long-awaited cooling shower (of Love).
It will serve to quench our parched, dried out, sinful selves;
giving us LIFE (in Christ our Savior), once again.

Like the long-awaited cooling rains that cover the dry lands,
and awaken new life within,
sprouting the seeds of green hope
and of a life restored, abundantly blessed,
once again.

This is how God's forgiveness and inexhaustible Mercy works for us.
If only we humbly turn to our Father
with a sincere heart
looking to be renewed, refreshed.
Hoping to have our heavy-ladden burdens lifted (far away unto His Cross)
from our sorrowing lives.

God will gently cover our wounds (caused by sin)
with the healing balm of one drop of His Son's precious blood.
This is how our compassionate Father repairs our brokenness,
and restores us back to LIFE
in Him, through Him, and with Him.

All we need to do is to turn our face to God,
the One who loves us more than we could ever love.
All we need to do is to recognize His loving gaze in our lives...
He will, in turn, take care of us every step of the way.

But first, we must BELIEVE!
