How Do You Spell Relief?

Time to put down that load of sin.

Psalms 65:1-5 What mighty praise, O God, belongs to you in Zion.

We will fulfill our vows to you, for you answer our prayers.

All of us must come to you.

Though we are overwhelmed by our sins, you forgive them all.

What joy for those you choose to bring near, those who live in your holy courts.

What festivities await us inside your holy Temple.
You faithfully answer our prayers with awesome deeds, O God our savior.

What a mighty God we have, if he had never done one thing for me he would still deserve my praise, he is that magnificent.

But the truth is he has provided awesome blessings for his people, he has given us the ability to have a personal relationship with him, a relationship that is full of joy and praise to him for the awesome things that he has done, and for forgiveness of all the broken vows that we have made to him.

Probably everybody has reached the point in life where they were defeated and overcome by sin, unable to help ourselves, we can go to God in prayer and he is willing to lift the burden of our sin. I spell relief "forgiveness"

No wonder we have so much joy, at least we should have, we should be the most joyful people on earth.

I want to spend each day joyfully knowing that God has provided forgiveness for all my sin, when I go to church on Sunday it should be a celebration.

You are an awesome God and you are worthy of our praise. Thank you for giving us a pardon for our sins by trusting in your son.
