today during communion a sudden thought came to me:

how great will it feel when someday, during communion, i’ll only have to quickly ask for forgiveness for sins i inadvertently committed (vs. spending a long time contemplating all the things i did willfully and knowingly), and then be free to sing ALL the communion songs with a joyful and unburdened heart?

(answer: pretty darn good!)

and i think, at this particular moment, this is where i am right now:

Day by day His tender mercy,

healing, helping, full and free,


sweet and strong, and ah! so patient,


brought me lower while I whispered,


less of self, and more of Thee,


less of self, and more of Thee.

  1. yes! i think CJ Mahaney says (oh! here) that our confessions should be specific and brief. when our confessions are long and general, we are trying to rationalize our sin away.
