So many times in my life I have complained about hardship. To me, my life was harder than it should have been. I have groaned to God, and blamed Him for the consequences of my choices. I have never been happy with where I was…it was never good enough.
Then God took me by the hand and said, “Let me show you something…”. He pointed me to this man and said, “This is My friend John. Learn from him”. Over the months, I listened to this man, and soon we became as brothers. Then one day he gave his testimony to me, and at that moment, I realized how truly selfish I have been all of my life.
My life has been filled with blessings, I chose to focus on the perceived shortcomings. Then I would shake my fist at God for the wrongs I saw as being from His hand.
God, my Heavenly Father, I thank you for introducing me to your friend John. I thank you for his heart, his faith, and especially for his testimony. Bless him and his ministries, his family, and all of his work in Your name. Father, I am so sorry for all of the false accusations throughout my life. My heart was corrupted and I was blinded by my selfish behavior. Forgive me please. I pray these things in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen
