Wednesday Riff: Fresh Start

Happy are those whose wrongdoing is forgiven, whose faults are taken care of
Those who are being released from past failure, whose slates are wiped clean
Happy are those who tell God about their mistakes and problems,
who know they need him
Those who find that God is gracious and kind, slow to anger and rich in love
Happy are those who find they can bring their frailties and weaknesses,
missteps and mishaps to God
Those who know the shackles of their past are broken
Happy are those who are able to swap pride for humility
Those who discover that Jesus gave himself – not because people deserve it,
because people need it
Happy are those who find a fresh start in the man from Nazareth.
