lesson learned

I learned a good lesson …

Sometimes it’s so easy to do wrong. Sometimes the wrong thing just happens and before we know it, we’ve made a mistake. We’ve hurt someone and there's no turning back. Thankfully I haven't done this too many times in my life. At least not to my knowledge.

But we have a forgiving Father. No matter what we do, no matter what we say … He is full of forgiveness.

Forgive as the Lord

For that I’m thankful. But it's not always easy to just accept His forgiveness. Sometimes we're so hard on ourselves that we can't even see or feel His forgiveness.

For me, it's really just a trust issue. I believe what He says in the Bible is true and therefore when I read that He forgives me I believe that.

(If you don't believe it, just ask Him to help your unbelief. He'll do it!)

In addition to going to God for forgiveness, part of my process is going to the person. Admitting our

wrongs to an actual person can be difficult, but it's very necessary. (All circumstances are a bit different, so just know that before you go jumping the gun here ... if the person isn't aware of the problem, be careful not to start one by confessing something they aren't aware of!)

So after I confess to God and to the person, I seek out His help and comfort as I wrestle with this weakness in myself. My mind just wants to go back and forth with the wrong I committed and beat me up with it. Does that happen to you?

The way I wrestle with it is in my feelings and thoughts. I go back and forth between what my flesh and the enemy (the devil) is telling me and with what I know is true from God's words. I don't want to do that, but I do.

We all have weak areas. I know you have them too. I pray for you, as I think of myself, that in your weakness you seek out God who is strong for you.

God is our Refuge

Can I pray for you in any way? Please feel free to either comment below or send me a message via the contact page or email. I'd love to join with you in your area of struggle.

Always Carolyn

Her ability to create elegant, serene imagery by marrying both feminine and rustic elements is truly a gift.
