Just a thought for today..sometimes I let past mistakes, screwups get me down..or mistakes I made today hinder me from what God wants me to do..wouldnt it be nice to forgive ourselves the way God forgives us?..

Psalm 103:10-13 (King James Version)
King James Version (KJV)

10He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.

11For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him.

12As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.

13Like as a father pitieth his children, so the LORD pitieth them that fear him.

17The righteous cry, and the LORD heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles

5Great is our Lord, and of great power: his understanding is infinite

Great post arguy, we do need to forgive ourselves. I wish I could forget those past sins like God does.

amen and amen. Sometimes we are the most harsh on ourselves.

What is it that makes me not forgive myself? For me it's often my pride, and focusing on myself and not the Lord. Why did I fail again? I thought I had been having victory over those things...I'm so embarassed that my neighbor, who is not a Christian, saw me fail.., etc. I need to once again look to God, realize that His grace is sufficient, and that I cannot do it on my own no matter how much I try, and humbly pick up my cross...

"His understanding is infinite" When I don't understand the reasons I do things he does..The only thing I understand is what he wants me to understand..Jesus died that I may lay all my misunderstandings there, at the foot of the cross..

I heard someone recently say that we would never let other people talk to us like we talk to ourselves. We sit and tell ourselves that we are not worthy of this, and we didn't do this or that right... If someone else came up to us and said, "You're not worthy, you didn't do this right and you didn't do that right." If someone said those things to us, we'd think they were the enemy. He then said that we find we are being our own worst enemy.

As an adult convert to the catholic church, I approached my first confession with fear and trembling.
When I was done, the good ole Jesuit said to me, "you are never to confess these sins again"!
I got the mesaage. Jesus forgave me. Once and for all
Good message I think. For everyone.

Reminds me of the Casting Crowns song East to West. (I can't post the link, but someone else may be able to.)
