Turn to Jesus and experience his mercy

Be kind to me, O God, be kind. I'm turning you for safety with the entirety of who I am -- my very soul. That's how seriously I need your mercy. ~ Psalm 57:1a (ABP)

Dearest children, I'm am writing to you because its through Jesus that you are forgiven of your sins. ~ 1 John 2:12 (ABP)

Turn to Jesus and experience his mercy.
Dear God, thank you for sending your Son into the world to rescue us from being prisoners of sin. Continue to pour out your mercy on me because even though I know that I am forgiven and set free -- I still have some attachments to the old sinful ways. I know that you totally understand all that is happening to me and that your kindness cannot be derailed. I need to know how secure I am in you so that I can start to live into my forgiveness. I'm going to live the new life that Christ is developing in me. Amen.
