You are forgiven

“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” - 1 John 1:9

Guilt is a heavy bag to carry. Shame is just as heavy.

Do you know that we don't have to carry that load. God does not want you and me to be weighed down with guilt, shame and regret.

So, Why?

Why do we hang on to our guilt? Why do continue to weigh ourselves down with past mistakes and regrets. Why don't we just ask for God's forgiveness? Why don't we accept that He forgives us? Why do we continue to drag the baggage around?

Stop!
Let go!
Don't allow the baggage to weigh you down!

Ask God to forgive you for what you have done and let it go.

In the name of Jesus you are forgiven!

Today, lighten your load. God is not holding it against you and neither should you. Let go.

Love today as a forgiven child of God.

In Christ's love and mine,
Doug
