peace talks


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.
