I need to confess. As a struggling saint and expert sinner, there are times when the sins I have committed come to mind; thoughts or dreams of some distant memory, or some broken relationship, or unkind words spoken in haste and they will weigh heavy on my heart. What is really crazy is how long I will suffer over my sins without taking them to God.
Many times in my life, I know God must have cried as God watched me make wrong decisions and live out the consequences of those decisions.
Here’s what I must remember. Once we accept God’s forgiveness, we are set free to forgive others, to heal broken relationships, to see the world in a whole new light.
