I'm Forgiven!

Hey there Lovebugs :)

Have you ever done or said some things in your life that you're not proud of?  Ever glance over your past & think "I cannot believe I did that!"  The truth is none of us are perfect.  We know that.  God knows it too.  But sometimes it's hard to believe that even with all of the wrong we've done, God can and will forgive us.

1 John 1:9 (NLT) says "But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us and to cleanse us from every wrong."  Did you catch that?!?  You mean to tell me, that all we have to do is tell God all of our wrongs and He will forgive us??  C'mon now, that's just too simple!  I made some pretty big mistakes!  I just screwed up yesterday!  And all I have to do is confess my sins and I'm forgiven??  WOW...

This was something that I struggled with accepting at first because I can be very critical of myself.  But how many us know that how we see ourselves is very different from how God sees us!  So get this Lovies: we ARE gonna mess up.  We ARE gonna make mistakes.  Every single one of us has sinned but God loves us so much that He sent His Son to die for them.  So the next time you stumble, the next time you fall off track, confess your sins to God and really accept the fact that not only does He love you unconditionally, but He forgives you!
