Devotional # 5:

 Isaiah 48: 17-19

I am the Lord your God:
who teaches you for your own good,
who leads you in the way you should go.
O that you had paid attention to my commandments!
Then your prosperity would have been like a river,
and your success like the waves of the sea;
your offering would have been like the sand,
and your descendants like its grains
their name would never be cut off
or destroyed from before me.

Dear God, we have ignored your commandments. At every turn, we have gone astray. We ask your forgiveness. We will try anew to follow your way, even as we know that we will fail. But we will try.  Amen
