Forgiving yourself is a tough task. At times our spiritual life and our flesh collide, pulling us in a hundred different directions, and as a result we feel somewhat spiritually stuck. There is always that lingering voice in the back of your head telling you that you aren’t good enough and that you have reached the point of no return. If God has completely forgiven you and died so that you could live freely in His Presence, why then would you not forgive yourself? You are His most precious creation, and you are loved beyond anything you could ever imagine. I think that not forgiving yourself is more like feeling as if you think that God has not completely forgiven you. As if your past and what you have done is too much to forgive. Well, here is the good news: when you were saved by God’s marvelous grace, you were marked with a seal guaranteeing your inheritance of the Kingdom of God. In other words, you can never be “unsaved”.
Ephesians 1:7 – In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace.
His grace has covered you and wiped your slate clean. Each day his mercies are new. We are humans, therefore, we have a tendency to screw up. However, as Christians, we always have God there to catch us in his abundant grace and mercy. Forgiving yourself is the best decision you could ever make.
One who forgives herself and others around her is an unstoppable, authentic being.
