    I don’t know if I am doing this right but here goes. Sometimes my sins overwhelm me and I do ask God for forgiveness and if I have offended someone I ask them for forgiveness. I recently had to do that when I got so overwhelmed with frustration to the point where I yelled at an aunt and I cried while yelling but I did ask her for forgiveness and she told me I had nothing to be sorry about. Then this morning I found out that she was in the hospital for the third time in a week. I said to her daughter I am so sorry for how I acted the night before she said you’re ok. However I can’t help but think could that conversation been part of the issue? God forgive me for my sin of disrespect.
