Strength Today

I will get up and go to my father and say to him, “Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you.

[Luke 15:18]

~~~~~~

O my God, my Father! hear,

And help me to believe;

Weak and weary I draw near;

Thy child, O God, receive.

I so oft have gone astray;

To the perfect Guide I flee;

Thou wilt turn me not away,

Thy love is pledged to me.

~ HYMNS OF THE SPIRIT ~

O child, hast thou fallen? arise, and go, with childlike trust, to thy Father, like the prodigal son, and humbly say, with heart and mouth, “Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before Thee, and am no more worthy to be called Thy son; make me as one of Thy hired servants.” And what will thy heavenly Father do but what that father did in the parable? Assuredly He will not change His essence, which is love, for the sake of thy misdoings. Is it not His own precious treasure, and a small thing with Him to forgive thee thy trespasses, if thou believe in Him? for His hand is not shortened that it cannot make thee fit to be saved.
