A #2020 Confession

Lord,

Forgive me.

During this time of shutdowns, COVID, and unrest

I have despaired

Feeling overwhelmed and isolated from others

I have failed to trust in your sovereign will and promises

I have feared

You continually say, “Do not be afraid”

But I have feared disease, death, discomfort and change

I have hated

In my pain and discomfort

Those who disagree with me and those in power over me

Instead of trusting that “ . . . nor anything . . . in all creation can separate me from your love”

I have spouted off

In person and online

Impatiently voicing my frustration for all to hear

Instead of being “quick to listen and slow to speak” as you have commanded

I have neglected

Those around me who need companionship and help

As I wallow in my own self-pity

I have doubted

Your unwavering plan and ability to carry it out

As the world around me becomes seemingly unrecognizable

Instead of remembering your steadfast love and perfect strength

Throughout history-the world’s and mine

Forgive me, Lord.  I pray.
