The Power of Forgiving Yourself

The Power of Forgiving Yourself

1 John 4:4 New Living Translation (NLT)
But you belong to God, my dear children. You have already won a victory over those people, because the Spirit who lives in you is greater than the spirit who lives in the world.

Micah 7:19 Amplified Bible (AMP)
He shall again have compassion on us;
He will subdue and tread underfoot our wickedness [destroying sin’s power].
Yes, You will cast all our sins
Into the depths of the sea.

      I have learned that it is easier for me to grant forgiveness to others, but yet I have struggled with forgiving myself. When you have to come face to face with realizing that decisions you have made may very well be the reason you are experiencing some of the situations in your life, that is a hard pill to swallow. However, because you love God, and are called according to His purposes, things you have done in His will, and out of His will will work out in your favor (Romans 8:28). The word says "All Things Work Together For The Good". All means everything. 
     You are not your own, but you belong to God, therefore you have relinquished authority over your life to God. That is why not forgiving yourself is a sin also. Not forgiving yourself is still walking in unforgiveness. Make a decision today that you will release yourself from all guilt and regret. Take it all as learning experiences and grow from them and move forward. To experience and not grow from it is the real tragedy. Know that you are better because of it. 
     God has cast it in the sea of forgetfulness, but you keep throwing your net out into the sea and bringing your past back to shore. Let It Go! Let the past be the past and devote your time to building your future. You have given your past enough time, don't invest any more time into it. Sometimes you have to simply say, "I chose that, and at that time I thought I was making the right decision, but now I see that it wasn't the best thing to do". Admit it, and then release it. It is time to really set yourself free form unforgiveness. You owe yourself something better. Besides your best days are ahead, and your latter shall be greater! 

Blessings to you, 
Andrea Lynn Gates

This has EMPOWERED ME!!!! I have been low-key beating myself up about some recent decisions I've made. This is confirmation that it's okay to admit that I missed it! Thank you! I missed it....and it's okay, it's gonna STILL WORK OUT FOR MY GOOD.

Maybe we did make a lot of mistakes in the past, but what was in the past should stay in the past. It is harder for us to forgive ourselves than forgive others because we unconsciously cannot accept the fact that we made mistakes. We must forgive ourselves to have the peace that we hoped for. We should forgive ourselves because we are not perfect and nobody will ever be. We should forgive ourselves because that is the only way for us to be free.

Regardless of whether you have a great deal of cash with you, don't declare to the world that you have that much cash.

Many homework on the continual hunt along with offstage on the road to winning. Definitely not attached, simple to-fall as a result of wayside; And not investigation, afterward into a path travel toward the black.

You will make your own draft of whatever players you want for your team, which will depend on their real life performance record of course.

It was just Jeff Nelson who did not go for the White Sox as he was pulling for Minnesota.
