Forgive Yourself

Earlier this week Chris Hogan shared a tweet that stuck with me:

“GOD forgave you. If you refuse to forgive yourself then you are choosing to resist his grace. #truth”

That’s a pretty powerful statement!  One worth remembering.

We all mess up.  We all sin.  It’s a given.  What we need to do is learn from it.  Learn to ask for forgiveness from God, from others… and from ourself.  I do realize from my own experiences that this can be easier said than done.

It’s funny how things work out.  As I was trying to decide if I wanted to write about this topic something happened that made the decision clear.  My Mom would call it a “God Wink.”  The first tweet I saw this morning was from Pope Francis:

“Sometimes we are saddened by the weight of our sins. May we not be discouraged. Christ has come to lift this burden and give us peace.”

I hope you can take comfort in these words.  I know I do.
