Repentance makes a You-Turn

by Mary Harwell Sayler

What do your sins want
to teach you?

Oh, do not let them go
until you learn!

When you fall on your face,
don’t get up! Turn

over. See that infinite opening
through which to crawl? No?

Then forget it!
Laze there a while until you see.

Eventually God will come
toward you, enticing you home.

Prayer: Dear Heavenly Father, please help us to learn from our mistakes, not just during this season of Lent, but throughout the year. Thank You for Your forgiving love and healing, always eager to bless and embrace us in Jesus’ Holy Name.
