this day I forgot about loving you
and did that which made you turn your face away from me.
I do love you, Lord.
It’s just sometimes I put you in the smallest part of my thoughts.
Restore yourself in my mind.
this day what I wanted was more important to me
than my neighbor’s needs.
Remind me that when I love my neighbor,
I am loving you.
this day I thought that I needed to harm the one against me.
I forgot that even my enemy was made in your image
and that to hurt them is to hurt you.
Give me the strength to apologize
(even though I don’t think they deserve my apology).
Give me humility.
