God and God alone UNDERSTANDS and IS FULLY AWARE of why we did what we did and He and He alone can 1. issue forgiveness and 2. move us on from it and 3. give us our peace and hope and sound mind back.
Lord, we thank You from our hearts that You readily forgive. Help us to forgive ourselves and see ourselves through Your eyes after we have talked to You to say 'sorry'. We are then purified from the sin and given a chance to start again. Your forgiveness leads us into a deep connection with You and this is what You want from us. Help us forgive ourselves as You do. Thank You. Amen.
