Repent with Tears By, Vicki Leonardson

05/31/2020

"You have wearied the Lord with your words."

“How have we wearied him?” you ask.

You have wearied him by saying that all who do evil are good in the Lord’s sight, and he is pleased with them. You have wearied him by asking, “Where is the God of justice?”

Malachi 2:17

Maybe you haven't said these words, but I know that I have. 

I have sarcastically said, "Thanks a lot, God!", among other rude phrases.  I'm not proud of that. 

"That is why the Lord says,
“Turn to me now, while there is time.
Give me your hearts.
Come with fasting, weeping, and mourning.
Don’t tear your clothing in your grief,
but tear your hearts instead.”
Return to the Lord your God,
for he is merciful and compassionate,
slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love.
He is eager to relent and not punish." 
Joel 2:12-13

Honestly, I return to God every morning. I repent every morning. With tears. I must constantly clean out my heart. 

He is merciful and compassionate to me. Always. His love never gives up on me. He rewards me with His sweet presence. How I love Him. 

"Thank You for Your constant love and compassion. Thank You that I return to You every morning, with tears, and You always show up. How I love You, Jesus. AMEN."
