Do you ever beat yourself up over your past mistakes. Sometimes we replay our mistakes over and over and over in our minds. Sometimes our worst critic is ourself.
Yesterday, we talked about letting go. Well, once you let go, you need something new to go to. What area of your life do you need to start fresh in? If you’ve been trying to get healthy and lose weight and you’ve struggled with it in the past, maybe you need to forgive yourself and start over. If you’ve tried to have healthy love relationships but keep connecting with the wrong people, I want you to forgive yourself and start fresh. If you always throw your money away, I want you to give yourself permission to start fresh.
Often, we talk about needing to apologize and get forgiveness from people, but often, we need to apologize and forgive ourselves. Jesus’ gift of forgiveness extends to the forgiveness we give to ourselves. And this part of the equation is important for us to be able to start afresh.
