I stole a co-workers credit card once and purchased things I don’t now remember. I went to rehab to avoid prosecution.
Got into a fight while in rehab and tried to kill my opponent because she tried to touch me inappropriately.
I slept with another woman’s husband…back before I knew that cheaters always cheat.
I showed up high on cocaine for my cousin’s graduation from a Christian school. I realized, after I was in the church, that I was wearing fishnet stockings and 3-inch heels. I actually believed, at the time, that others were staring at me because I was so hot.
I played slots in South Korea until I burned up a month’s pay and then stole enough money to send home to the daughter that I had allowed to live.
I told my best friend’s husband that she was cheating on him because I was so drunk I had forgotten he was in the room. She didn’t speak to me again until I was invited to her wedding to another guy, not the one that she was sleeping with…I could only go to the wedding if I apologized for destroying her second marriage. I hung up on her.
I’ve envied youth, money, power, possessions, and recognition. I’ve coveted that which I’ve neither been willing or fortunate enough to earn or obtain.
Enter the man, the Son, the Savior, who saves all that come to Him.
I’ve busied myself with good works, family life and a career so that I wouldn’t have to spend any quality time with my Creator. His Spirit has always been there to convict and draw me back in. Thank you, thank you, Savior and Wonderful Counselor!
I know my destination. I know who I am and I know who I used to be. I know the man and the Spirit who saved me when He died for me. Will I remember all my sins in eternity?
