Hail to you our King! You alone are compassionate with our errors.
That was said before the Gospel today… which is now yesterday…….. but how powerful is that. Compassionate with our errors. Everyday, we are trying to live and be happy. I know that I am trying to be happy on a constant basis. Things in life start going our way, we get comfortable, and then we lose sight of our God. We know we can’t do it all by ourselves, and that we need to have Him on our side, but we get comfortable.
Thank God he is compassionate when we fall. I have really been thinking about this, this week especially, since my son has been very sick. I have been at home with him all week, and I have had to be very compassionate to him. I know he is in a vulnerable state, and I know that he is just uncomfortable, and I know he needs me to be caring for him. Just like our Holy Father, we need him to be caring and compassionate. I am guilty of trying to do everything on my own, not asking for help, even when I know I need it. I don’t forget he is there, I just want to be the hero, the “man”, the whatever…. when in reality, I am not strong enough to do it all on my own. It is shear pride that gets in the way….. human pride.
We all have to learn to ask for help, and let God lead us where he wants us to go. He has many gifts waiting for us, we just have to be willing to let go of our pride, our ego, and our controlling needs. It sounds so simple, yet, it is still so hard sometimes. Thank God he is compassionate, caring, and understands our errors.
