If you’re new here, we are just now starting a new devotional on the Bible App called, Broken Crayons Still Color and it lasts for 5 days!
if you want to still join, here is the link, so we can read this devotional together and up to 150 people can join it (that’s what the Bible App says). Here is day 1 of the devotional, just in case you missed it!
“Just as we are to forgive others of their sins against us, I believe we may also need to forgive ourselves. And a big part of that is accepting God’s complete forgiveness of our sins.”
Sometimes it’s hard to forgive someone, especially if they have hurt us, but it’s even more harder to forgive ourselves of our sins.
We are our worst critics!
It might even take you longer to forgive yourself than it is to forgive other people.
God has already forgiven us – why is it so hard to forgive ourselves?
We might try to believe that we will always be broken and ashamed of our sin. We hold onto believing that for awhile.
Maybe you have felt unlovable and that no one can ever love you because of your sin.
Maybe you have regretted what you did in your past and you wish you could go back and do it all differently, if you could.
When we cry out to God and ask for forgiveness, He will make you new and you will be forgiven of your sins.
You have no idea what all God has planned for you and one day you will be thankful for everything you went through in your past.
You will realize that everything you went through created who you are today.
You may be broken right now, but God has something that is so incredible just for you
He will put all your broken pieces back together again and make you new.
