Have You Ever Been Disappointed?
By family or friends?
By choices you have made?
Talk to those near you. Include children.
Dear God, we are sorry when we
disappoint you. We are sorry when we complain and grumble. We are sorry when we don't act the right way. Please help us to change.
God Forgives Us
God is kind and forgives those who are
truly sorry. Through Jesus we can be friends with God.
Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,
neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
