Set On Edge: Grace in the Wilderness: Prayers and Poetry

Jeremiah 31:30, “But everyone will die for his own iniquity; each man who eats the sour grapes, his teeth will be set on edge.”

Set on edge,

There are so many ways that we manage to place blame on others, or on circumstances, or false reasoning, in our attempts to not admit our own fears and failures.

We bury our sins and lies and it only makes each situation worse. Especially in ongoing relationships. Especially when we begin to believe our own manufactured reasoning.

Without clarity to recognize and identify our personal sour perceptions, our teeth will also be always set on edge as we deny our sins. Or refuse to own them. Unless we are willing to see through the Lord’s insight and His cleansing grace.

Forgive us, Lord, of our false pretenses. Please give us Your strength and insight to recognize our lies and turn to You for Your truth and Your forgiveness to make amends. With You. With ourselves. With others.

Your thoughts,
