It’s hard for me to say I’m sorry.
This happens every time I think too much of myself.
I don’t want to make you mad. I don’t want you to be mad at me. I want you to be happy. I want to be the one to make you happy. I want you to have mercy because of the good in me. I want you to see the good in me.
But I’ve been looking at this all wrong. I don’t need mercy for my goodness.
I need mercy for my pride. I need mercy for my selfishness. I need mercy for being unkind with my words and uncharitable in my assumptions. I need mercy because Murphy’s Law of Marriage is the only one I can keep.
I need a God who defies the laws of gravity with the resurrection Gospel.
I need you to forgive me.
