Often times I’ve been guilty of not forgiving myself. It seems we are much better in doing this for others, yet burden ourselves with a heavy load that we shouldn’t be carrying. The Bible is clear; the wage of sin is death, a price already paid by Jesus himself. All that is left to do is recognize that we’ve fallen and ask God for forgiveness, it’s as simple as that. His word says that HE forgives and forgets. So if He can do it for us, why can’t we do it for ourselves?
“I—yes, I alone—will blot out your sins for my own sake and will never think of them again. (Isaiah 43:25 NLT)
