Why is it so hard. Why is it so hard to FORGIVE YOURSELF.
God's Grace & Mercy covers us.
But why is it SO hard to forgive ourselves when we do something that we KNOW isn't in God's Will for our lives?
I promise it's the WORST feeling ever. We ask for forgivness, we KNOW that God has forgiven us and will remember our sins no more (Hebrews 10:17) But why can't we forgive ourselves? Why do we STILL feel that guilt.
When I say "WE" I mean "I".
When we do or say things out of the way, WHY can't WE let go and forget about it, accept God's forgiveness, be thankful for His Grace and Mercy and move on?
Here are a few things the bible says about forgiveness:
1 John 1:9 (King James Version)
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Ephesians 1:6-7 (King James Version)
To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.
In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;
Colossians 1:12-14 (King James Version)
Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:
Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:
In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins.
God sure does know how to keep you on your knees.
Not perfect but striving daily to be the woman that God wants me to be.
