Trust in God

Instead of being discouraged by my past disloyalties to Him, let me be thoroughly ashamed of them, which is a much better thing.  Let me repeat to myself those words of Psalm 25:

“Remember that Your compassion, O Lord,
and Your kindness are from of old.

The sins of my youth and my frailties remember not:
in Your kindness, remember me, because of Your goodness, O Lord.”
