Why is it so hard to forgive ourselves?
I struggle with forgiving myself for my mistakes. It seems like big or small, I remember them all. (accidental rhyme, lol) But really, I do remember so many things, so many bad choices. A few weeks ago, I was having a really tough day. I was racked with guilt over choices and bad decisions I had made long ago. In the midst of the chaos(brought on by the adversary), a thought entered my mind:
Forget what the Lord has forgotten.
At that moment- life became so clear. I had repented of my sins and mistakes. I’d prayed for forgiveness.
And the Lord forgave me, just as He forgives each one of us.
The Lord has forgotten my sins- why shouldn’t I?
He remembers them no more.
May we extend compassion and forgiveness to ourselves by following our Savior’s example.
We must forget what He has forgotten long ago.
Wishing you a beautiful day!
