Here is where amends come in. Now is the time to undo as much of the damage that we have done, by our wrong doings, as we possibly can and to restore relationships and heal deep wounds.
This is certainly not easy! Yet it is vital to the man and woman who are discovering Freedom from their strongholds. As long as you have a residual cloud of sorrow hanging over your head from unresolved problems you have not tried to set right, you will be prone to depression, anger, fear, etc… and you may even find yourself tempted to “act out” to relieve that pain.
Why not seek to relieve that pain GOD’S Way, by making amends and hopefully healing wounds and restoring relationships. It may not solve all your problems but it will surely make them less in number.
Dear LORD, Please forgive me for looking for an easy way out of the hurt I've caused others. Please help me LORD, to see it for what it is, to be patient with those who find it difficult to Trust me again, and to do all I can to heal the hurts I've caused by being a person of integrity from now on. My LORD, my GOD, I want to Thank YOU for the many Blessings YOU continue to pour out amongst a nation that insists on pushing YOU away. Nothing says Love like YOUR continuous Grace & Mercy paired with the very fact that YOU Alone came down to this Earth, robed in flesh, as The Man, JESUS CHRIST, to die for our sins! I Praise YOU and Glorify YOU! I Lift YOUR Name On High! And I Pray to YOU, KING JESUS, in YOUR Mighty, Powerful and Precious Name. Amen.
