  1. This is such truth! I struggle with holding on and self-condeming. And yet, I know there is purpose, even in my mistakes. Amen!

    • Thanks for commenting on my post. It’s true that we are the most hard on ourselves then anyone else…including God. We make mistakes and He loves and forgives us anyway.

    • Thanks for commenting on my post! We are all a work in progress. I guess the key is to more forward, not backward…you can’t grow if you’re stuck in the ground.

  2. Thank you for this encouragement, especially for sharing Philippians 3:13 with us today. That really hit home for me today.

    God bless,

  3. Thanks for taking the time to comment on my post. I am happy Philippians helped you today. Sometimes all we need is a few words from Him. I am blessed to have been the one who delivered it today.

  4. Thank you so much for this post… your words were so timely in my life. I love how God works like that! His words – through you in cyberspace – to me, a woman you don’t even know. He is so faithful and does not abandon His people.

    I love your thoughts about how God transformed a murderer into a compassionate leader. I’ve never thought of Moses that way.

    May God use your honesty to reach many other women…


  5. Beautiful reminder of the GIFT of God’s grace & forgiveness.

    Now…all these petty things I hold onto…can I let them go? Can I stop ‘marking’ my children, my husband with their past mistakes? Can I really let it go, and love them fresh, expecting the best, every new day?

    Thanks, Jeri. I really need to ponder these things; I really need to let it go.

    • Thanks Teri,
      I agree. Why do we keep a score card on the ones we love? Why do we keep a score card on ourselves? I tell myself at least 10 times a day to let it go! Bless you.

  6. I think that facing them is what’s stopping me asking for forgiveness. To ask I have to voice and I’m scared to do that x

    • Sara,
      I get the fear. It’s always hard to face our fears. But I truly believe it’s the only way to move forward and have the life you want. I struggle with fears everyday. You are not alone on that one. Find your voice. You can do it. Trust in Him.
