"Regret can be an appalling waste of energy--you can't build on it. So acknowledge your sin, accept God's forgiveness, & get on with living for His honor & glory."
" There's an all-seeing Eye watching you--but He's loving, gentle, tender, forgiving and waiting with open arms."
" Every day of the past is beyond our reach & we should leave it there."
Well as you can tell I am having a little struggle with God's forgiveness. I have sinned and I know that and I feel so bad about it. I want to believe that I am forgiven and that it is ok but I am having a hard time with that. I know if someone found out what I did they would be hurt and that hurts me. I am so weak Lord. I am so sorry Lord. I want to be a better person but it is so hard.
I think that I need to forgive myself, I need to let it go, I need to move on. I know all of this and I am praying for the strength to do this. I feel so guilty and sad so I just bury it but it comes out and into my head more than I want it to. I am babbling but it is just something that has been on and in my heart and mind.
Lord please forgive me of my sin, I am humbled before you and filled with regret. Please help me let go of my sin, forgive myself and help me to sin no more. In love, Amen.
