It's time to forgive yourself
I don’t know why you are holding onto it.
That thing you have already asked forgiveness for a thousand times.
What you’ve already given to him at the altar in your church, as you cried in your shower, as you laid your head on your pillow.
Every time you have a free, silent, moment you allow it to lead you on a guilt trip. God says STOP. I have forgiven you!
As far as the east is from the west, so far he removes our transgressions from us. Psalm 103:12
Now if you believe what the scriptures say, that you are forgiven through Christ, then you cannot hold on to the weight of unforgiveness any longer. It’s too heavy and not meant for us to bear. I want to encourage you to work on freeing yourself by forgiving yourself. It’s one thing to feel convicted or even guilty about doing something wrong. But after you have given it up to God in repentance the sense of guilt should not be greater. Self-condemnation is not what God desires for any of us. Neither is condemnation by any other person!
There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. Romans 8:1.
I don’t know what it is, how long you have been holding it, or the extent to which it burdens you throughout your nights but you have to let it go. Receive and experience peace.
Pray a simple prayer today:
Lord, help me to forgive myself and help me to forgive others. I’ve tried before and failed so please guide me. I want to be free and I need your peace. I trust you! In Jesus name, Amen.
