Good morning ladies.  I pray that you are doing well with your challenge to replace negative thoughts with God’s truths.  This morning I feel called to share a basic truth that we often overlook:  “You are forgiven”.  This truth is taken from Colossians 1:13-14:

“He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.”
Do you live in God’s forgiveness and acceptance of you or do you continue to condemn yourself?  For some reason, we are really good at beating ourselves up for our sins.  They weigh us down making us feel unworthy, unworthy of love and forgiveness.  This sense of unworthiness is a lie that we have to stop believing!!!  God has called us out of darkness and into His kingdom of light through his Son.  Through Jesus, we have full forgiveness of sins.
The challenge is for us to forgive ourselves.  There is no extra credit for penance.  What God asks is that we turn away from sin and walk in holiness.  He knows we cannot undo what has been done and He also knows that we will fall again.  That is the joy of the cross and the fact that Jesus took the punishment of our sins on himself.
Ladies, our call is to walk as forgiven children of God.  Let’s stop beating ourselves up and start embracing the precious gift that God has given us through His Son.  You are forgiven.  There is nothing that you could do or will do that God will hold against you.  Move out of your condemnation and into His grace!
