Spiritual Practice

I’m Sorry

Tammeka Swinson

There’s something I need to tell you.

       I . . .

It’s kind of hard to say.

       I’m . . .

I feel guilty about what I did.

       I’m s . . .

Please forgive me.

       I’m so . . .

I really want to tell you the words.

       I’m sor . . .

I wonder if it would matter to you if I did say–

       I’m sorry . . .

Your forgiveness is all that I need, so I need to tell you–

       I’m sorry.

 

The right word at the right time is like precious gold set in silver.
Proverbs 25:11 (CEV)

JUST SAY IT: Why are those little words so hard to say? Practice saying them; then go speak the words to someone who needs to hear them from you.
