God, it was just a bad day today. It could almost be called an 'Oopsy day.' But, where do I start?

I know what happened, but if makes you feel better, the beginning always seems to be the best place.

I messed up again. I didnít mean toóit just kinda happened. You see, I was running late...

And you cut off the school bus again, I know, I see everything, My child.

...and I cut off the school bus. I think I scared the driver and the kids this time. I kinda cut it a little bitty bit close. I hope that those kids are okay...I have a funny feeling I'll be seeing my face on the news tonight.

The children are fine. A little shook up.

I really didn't mean to...God, there is more...

I know.

I lied to my co-worker, Leah...but I really didn't want to go out with her tonight. She was probably going to try to set me up with her brother...again! I didn't mean to lie that my cousin was in town..., I don't even have a cousin, and I just didn't know what else to say.

How about the truth? The Truth does set you free.

I am trying to be a good Christian. Honest, Lord. Itís just hardóI canít seem to stop making these 'oopsy' mistakes. Please forgive me and help me...

All you had to do was ask. All is forgiven, My precious child. And I will help you

Amen

A nice reminder that God forgives our big and small "oopsy" mistakes. This would be a cute devotional.

Yes, comforting-God already knows and still does not condem!

This was short and to the point, which I liked. The loving voice of God and the genuine voice of your MC made this entry an inviting read with a message we need to engrave in our hearts.

Sounds like my conversations with God; and I know He has a sense of humor, too. Cute story.

So right, all we need to do is come to the Lord. It was a great POV. I enjoyed every word.

A simple, honest, reassuring devotional. You've said it all.
