I don’t have to carry the weight of who I’ve been, I’m forgiven. When I don’t measure up too much in this life, I’m a treasure in the arms of Christ (Sanctus Real)
Many times I feel like I’m carrying the heavy burden of unforgiveness because of consequences that follow sin. I have to remind myself that God is merciful and His forgiveness is complete but it does not cancel the consequences of sin. God’s grace is sufficient for everything we will face in this life and this gives a blessed assurance that we do not walk alone.
God can restore hope in dreams that seem lost, He can take what the devil meant for evil and turn it around for good. He can make something beautiful out of our lives even when we mess up- God is powerful and can take the broken pieces and create a masterpiece.
I encourage you today to forgive that person that has wronged you, or humble yourself and ask for forgiveness and seek to restore peace in your relationships- there is beauty in repentance and forgiveness. Maybe you feel like you can’t ask God for forgiveness another time, please don’t feel that way. Run to His loving arms, He is waiting to hold you and heal every hurt. I am so grateful that Jesus does not turn away a repentant heart, He is quick to forgive.
I am forgiven, I am free from condemnation and guilt. Thank you Lord for forgiving me and keeping no record of wrong.
I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins. Isaiah 43:25
