All our lives God retains the strong feelings toward us that infants evoke in their parents. He never has to let us go.
O Lord, You have searched me and You know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; You perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down; You are familiar with all my ways (Ps. 139:1-3).
Father, I thank You that while You love me completely, You know everything about me. Help me to be completely truthful with You. I don’t need to hide anymore.
Lord God, if I claim to be without sin, I deceive myself and the truth is not in me. If I confess my sins, You are faithful and just and will forgive my sins and purify me from all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9). Father, please help me to accept the fact that I have not out sinned Your ability to forgive me!
