Forgiveness Bubbles

I read this as part of my devotions today.
I am behind in my reading a little and I am doubling up until I catch up.
Today I read Psalm 50-59.
This poem was in my Women of Faith Devotional Bible (which is NKJV) in reference to Psalm 51:1-2
"Have mercy upon me, O God,
According to Your lovingkindness;
According to the multitude of Your tender mercies,
Blot out my transgressions.
Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity,
And cleanse me from my sin."
I just love this and had to share. Please do as it asks in the Women's Devotional Bible and
"Set your sophistication aside for a moment... and revel in forgiveness with the heart."
Thanks for listening to me, God;
I need to talk to You.
I know you love your children, Lord,
No matter what they do.

And though I try to do my best,
I know I always should-
But I’m not perfect or grown up;
Sometimes I’m not quite good.

Right now my heart is cold and stained
With dirt and grime and sin.
I need forgiveness bubbles, please,
To make it clean again.

If
You wash my heart again
And rinse away the stain,
The wicked things I’ve said and done
Will go right down the drain!

My heart feels very dirty, God–
Won’t
You please scrub it bright?
When
You forgive me once again,
My heart will be snow white.

Please help me keep my heart clean, Lord,
And teach me to do right.
Help me keep my heart forever
Shiny penny bright

But if I happen to mess up
And need another scrub,
I know you won’t forget me, God;
Just plop me in
Your tub!

Lots of folks don’t understand
Forgiveness from above;
They don’t know how my heart feels
When it is bathed in love.

When I am sorry, You forgive;
The problem doesn’t matter.
When my heart is brand-new clean,
My ugly feelings scatter.

I’m growing up, and as I do,
You’ll help me through my troubles.
I won’t outgrow my love for You
And Your forgiveness bubbles.

My favorite part, though I like the whole thing, is "Shiny penny bright" I just love that!

I hope this blesses you today.

I hope you remember all our Savior did for us so that we could be "Shiny penny bright" in his sight.

Thank you Lord for your sacrifice.

For being willing to die on the cross to save me from all my sin... past, present, and future.

Help me to remember your sacrifice and to confess my sin daily... even moment by moment.

Help me remember it doesn't matter what I do wrong; if I ask for forgiveness you grant it and make my heart "brand-new clean" with "Your forgiveness bubbles."

Amen.
