In any relationship, it’s inevitable that we will make mistakes! The thing is, to learn from those mistakes, never make the same mistake repeatedly, and don’t allow anyone to hold your mistake over your head. Once The Lord forgives you, you are to move forward with thanksgiving, in humility and in wisdom with the intention of never committing that same transgression again.
Forgive others because God has forgiven you, forgive yourself and open yourself up to the opportunities that God has destined to come your way but they became delayed because of your disobedience. True, you may still have to live with the consequences of your past mistakes……. But! you are never required by God to live with guilt, shame or regret. Accept that your past mistakes may have caused the situation you are currently in but, quickly acknowledge the greater truth that your past mistakes which are now forgiven by God, do not need to impact the choices you will make for the rest of your life.
God is simply waiting for you to acknowledge your wrong…… Repent, confess it all to Him, and be blessed.
