If you came over from Encouragement for Today, welcome!
Today I shared a story about a beautiful young woman who carried a burden of guilt. Though it had been years since she had become a believer, the weight of her past kept her stuck.
She had been advised for years to forgive herself, and yet nothing she did had worked.
That’s when I told her. . .
That’s not your job.
We were never asked to forgive ourselves.
Yes, we confess that sin.
Yes, we make peace with others, as far as it is possible.
But accepting His forgiveness allows you to live fully in today. Your sin is reframed through His grace, and you are free to discover what God has for you today.
Print this out (click for printable) and place it on your bathroom mirror, or in your Bible, or on the refrigerator.
Read it out loud daily until it feels like truth inside of your heart.
When you look in the mirror, say these words: I am forgiven.
Let that forgiveness propel you discover what it means to live free and filled with Him.
