Whew - What A Relief
By his own admission, he was a school 'brat'. Now, about 25 years later, he has experienced a greater sense of guilt about some of his classroom antics and the way he treated some of his teachers. After much searching, he was able to locate one of those teachers that he especially had give a rough time, and called her, to apologize for his behaviour. Gord was right about the rough time he had given her – after all these years, she still remembered him!
She graciously accepted his apology, and the flood of relief that Gord experienced resulted in a flood of tears. Gord experienced a great unburdening of guilt, which has, in turn, has added to the freedom that he continues to find in Christ.
Please pray for Gord, as he looks for other opportunities to 'make amends' for what he has done in the past, and others who live at the Mission, as they work through their recovery from addictions. It's a very tough stage in their lives.
Proverbs 28:13 - He who covers his sins will not prosper, but whoever confesses and forsakes them will have mercy.
