It’s hard to say I’m sorry - Matthew 5:3

August 24, 2011
Matthew 5:3 (MSG) You're blessed when you're at the end of your rope. With less of you there is more of God and his rule.

A good, good cry cleanses the soul. Ever have one of those days when you cry out to God realizing that you have no excuses and you don’t know what else to do? It’s a humbling experience to go before God when we’re at the end of our rope and still trying to justify our actions.

It’s hard to know what to say, but God brings the remembrance of shortcomings into our minds. Waves of tears and excuses tumble out of our mouths yet it only takes humble confession before Almighty God to get clarity in our lives. Once that God-given clarity sets in, all that haze and darkness reveals itself.

Try humbling yourself before God. Watch him wipe off the self-imposed layers of sin and whatever keeps you from using or touching the gifts he placed in your heart.

Less of you is good.
