Guilt..

guiltEver feel stuck?

Your mind can’t rest.. You don’t know what’s wrong, maybe you just feel uneasy…

The days keep rolling on, and so do your  thoughts….

“Oh, what joy for those whose rebellion is forgiven, whose sin is put out of sight!  Yes, what joy for those whose record the Lord has cleared of sin, whose lives are lived in complete honesty!

When I refused to confess my sin, I was weak and miserable and I groaned all day long.  Day and night your hand of discipline was heavy on me.  My strength evaporated like water in the summer heat…

Finally I confessed all my sins to you and stopped trying to hide them.  I said to myself, “I will confess my rebellion to the Lord.” 

And You forgave me!  All my guilt is gone…”

Psalm 32 1-5

God can use our guilt to draw us into His presence of light, hope and love…

Forgiveness is a word that heals.. cleanses, and softens our hearts…

God longs to be near to us in all our dark and weary places… especially those places in our hearts where we have shut the door, and thrown away the key!

Sometimes, I sit down to have my quiet time with God, my mind races…

The truth is I find myself not wanting to sit still..I feel uncomfortable, rushed… even wanting to move from the light.

But the best thing to do is let the light shine bright.  Let God’s beauty and goodness draw the darkness from your heart, and hand it to Him in a sliver platter…

Give him all the hurtful words, thoughts, or actions that grip your soul… Trust Him to set Your heart free..

It is a great exchange.. your sin for His goodness.

“Finally I confessed all my sins to you and stopped trying to hide them.  I said to myself, “I will confess my rebellion to the Lord.” 

And You forgave me!  All my guilt is gone…”

Psalm 32:5

Trust Him in this and see your heart freed and your soul renewed…

Dear Heavenly Father, How I thank you for Your forgiveness and light always bleeding through my heart..

How I thank You for your gentle nudge of uneasiness in my soul… You draw me into Your courts that I might be cleansed… refreshed and renewed.

Thank You…

Lord, You are so good, and I thank You for loving me.

Today, how I praise You for refreshing my heart, use me to refresh those who are heavy laden and looking for hope…

I love You, Jesus..

In Your name I pray,

Amen

“Therefore, let all the godly confess their rebellion to you while there is time, that they may not drown in the floodwaters of judgment. 

For You are my hiding place; You protect me from trouble.  You surround me with songs of victory.. The Lord says, “I will guide you along the best pathway for your life.  I will advise you and watch over you.”

Psalm 32:8-9

Live in Love,

Lisa

To You, Oh Lord, be the glory…
