30 Days of Truth - Week #3


Week #3 - Something you have to forgive yourself for.

Maybe I should have read thru all these "truths" before I decided to post them about myself....or, maybe I could just skip thru and answer the easy ones!!  
Would that work?!!?  
Did I hear somebody say "no"....you've already committed yourself....or, would that just be the Holy Spirit telling me that?!?
:)
Yeah....since I've made the commitment....I'll try my best to answer each one....as truthfully as I can!!!

There are some things that I look back on that I wish I had never done....don't jump ahead and see if I'm gonna list each one, line by line, cause that ain't  gonna happen.  I'm a firm believer that there are some things that should remain between you and the Lord....and that's where those things will stay....just between me and HIM....our little secret!!!

But....I can honestly say....that there's nothing that I  need to forgive myself for.  I feel that everything that I've done....including, each and every mistake....has helped make me who I am today (and that's not saying I'm perfect by no means).  Things I've done wrong....just make me stop and think....helps me to make better decisions....choices....the next time!!!

I love these verses of scripture.  I feel that God gives us "permission" to forgive ourselves.  
Besides....isn't it actually Satan....who keeps reminding us of our past?!?!?

Colossians 2:13-14
You were dead because of your sins and because your sinful nature was not yet cut away. Then God made you alive with Christ, for he forgave all our sins.  He canceled the record of the charges against us and took it away by nailing it to the cross.

Don't you agree that last statement sums it all up?!?!?

He nailed it to the cross!!!
AMEN....and AMEN!!!

Until next week....hope your Tuesday is blessed!!!

In His Most Precious Love....and with mine!!!
