Years ago I messed up really, really bad—I quickly repented of my sins, but then had to deal with the shame part of it—which took much longer.
I would ask God to forgive me over and over, and I kept going to my dad asking him for forgiveness too—finally, after several times of doing this, my dad said to me, “Jerri, that’s water under the bridge, we don’t talk about it anymore, that’s not who you are anymore.” That day I was finally free. The debilitating grip of shame was broken off of me.
When my dad looks at me, he doesn’t remind me of my past sins and mistakes, no instead, he looks at me through the eyes of love, through the blood of Jesus, and sees me doing what I was always called to do.
A true representation of how my Heavenly Father sees me.
If you sinned (10 years ago or last week) and the aftermath of it still lingers in your soul, get rid of any hint of that right NOW. Don’t allow it to stay around anymore, hounding you with thoughts of regret or remorse. Accept His forgiveness. ➡️The Greek meaning of “repent” is a change of mind that results in a complete, radical, total change of behavior; to completely change or to turn around in the way that one is thinking, believing, or living; a total transformation affecting every part of a person’s life.”
‼️ If you have repented, then you are a new person with new thoughts and behavior...and that’s exactly how God sees you—through eyes of Love (because He IS Love) and you are His beloved child! ~~~> “The Lord your God is in the midst of you, a Mighty One, a Savior [Who saves]! He will rejoice over you with joy; He will rest [in silent satisfaction] and in His love He will be silent and make no mention [of past sins, or even recall them]; He will exult over you with singing.” Zephaniah 3:17 AMPC Happy Friday!
