“But He was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon Him, and by His wounds we are healed. We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all.” Isaiah 53:5-6

Facing mistakes is something we all have experience at. As hard as we try, none of us live God's way in everything we do. I hope that might make you feel better. I know it does make me feel better as I am far far from doing it right. With age I am learning not to carry so much guilt and realizing that I have to ask for forgiveness and move on. With our lives today it is much to easy to reason out guilt and condemn others...funny how we do not apply this to ourselves.

God doesn't want us condemning ourselves or anyone else along the way. Forgiveness is provided by Him... it is our gift; we must learn to use it and give it to others too. If you cannot forgive and you continue to carry condemnation, His sacrifice was for nothing.

Remember back to King David in the bible? Woaw... he was one tough cookie. He did some pretty ugly things, far worse than I imagine you or I are doing right now. BUT, when he was confronted with his sin, he did the right thing. First he repented, then he prayed and then he worshiped God. The results were as expected, God forgave him.

If God can do that for David, He can do it for you too!

FORGIVENESS is waiting for you....drop the guilt and welcome in His love.


"There is not a just man on earth who does good and does not sin." Ecclesiastes 7:20
