Self-Examination and Forgiveness - Cari Fydirchuk
May 13, 2012
|This can be a heavy topic, however it can really help your walk with God. A couple of questions to consider.
1)How do we receive Godís forgiveness and grace?
2)How do we allow that forgiveness and grace to flow through us?
God, investigate my life; get all the facts firsthand.
Iím an open book to you; even from a distance, you know what Iím thinking.
You know when I leave and when I get back: Iím never out of your sight.
You know everything Iím going to say before I start the first sentence.
I look behind me and youíre there, then up ahead and youíre there too Ė
your reassuring presence, coming and going.
This is too much, too wonderful Ė I canít take it all in!
Is there any place I can go to avoid your Spirit? To be out of your sight?
If I climb to the sky, youíre there!
If I go underground, youíre there!
If I flew on mornings wings to the far western horizon, Youíd find me in a minute Ė youíre already there waiting!
Then I said to myself, ďOh, he even sees me in the dark! At night Iím immersed in the light! Itsí a fact darkness isnít dark to you; night and day, darkness and light, theyíre all the same to you.
Oh yes you shaped me first inside, then out;
You formed me in my motherís womb.
I thank you, High God Ė youíre breathtaking!
Body and soul, I am marvellously made!
I worship in adoration Ė what a creation!
You know me inside and out, you know every bone in my body; You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit, how I was sculpted from nothing into something.
Like an open book, you watched me grow from conception to birth; all the stages of my life were spread before you,
The days of my life all prepared before Iíd even lived one day.
Your thoughts Ė how rare, how beautiful!
God, Iíll never comprehend them!
I couldnít even begin to count them Ė any more than I could count the sand of the sea.
Oh, let me rise in the morning and live always with you!
And please, God do away with wickedness for good!
And you murderers Ė out of here! Ė all men and women who belittle you, God, infatuated with cheap god imitations.
See how I hate those who hate you, God, see how I loathe all this godless arrogance;
I hate it with pure, unadulterated hatred. Your enemies are my enemies.
Investigate my life, O God, find out everything about me;
Cross examine and test me, get a clear picture of what Iím about;
See for yourself whether Iíve done anything wrong Ė then guide me on the road to eternal life.
