Pause…
Take a couple of deep breaths.
Recall that you are in the presence of God.
You are loved and blessed.

Psalm 119:1–8
1Happy are those whose way is blameless,
who walk in the law of the Lord.
2Happy are those who keep his decrees,
who seek him with their whole heart

God blesses us with a conscience. When we walk in God’s ways we know it and when we don’t we know that as well. Being free of guilt and shame is a free even joyous feeling. But we all sin, we all make mistakes from time to time. An angry word, a selfish act. And then our conscience reminds us. Calling us to make amends, say we are sorry, make it right. Jesus died so that we can be forgiven. And when things have been made right, we can walk walk happy with a clear conscience once again.
——
Is there anything that my conscience is bothering me about?
What can I do to be happy walking in the ways of the Lord?

Pray to God, using these words or others as you see fit.
Holy God,
Thank You for Jesus,
for Your love and forgiveness.
Help me both forgive
and when my conscience is bothering me
Ask for forgiveness.
Help me to walk blameless in your ways and
Help me become more like You.
Amen
