Lose the Unforgiveness. Take the Grace
—Grace & Truth Linkup

Theresa felt happy arriving early with her teenage son to his doctor’s appointment. Until she realized she was a whole month early!

Her son forgave her. But she had trouble forgiving herself.

I do this, too. I too often beat myself up for the small things instead of rapidly accepting God’s grace and forgiveness and moving forward.

But we don’t have to keep believing lies about ourselves, God, and others.

As Theresa writes,

“Beating yourself up does not change the reality that you are forgiven and clothed with grace. God has enough for everything big and small. All we have to do is set down our pride and accept it.”

    Wow, I have definitely been in Theresa’s shoes, and it’s both humbling and frustrating.

    It’s wonderful how blogging gives us a lens for understanding our lives as we view the experience of others.

    I have surely done the same thing – shown up on the wrong day for an appointment. But in laughing about it with the receptionist, it became the very means by which we moved forward in other conversations thereafter. I’ve become convinced it really was not a mistake but the avenue God used to open a door 🙂

    I enjoyed Theresa’s post, too. I have done that many times–beat myself up over mistakes. I’m trying to skip that step–or at least shorten it– learn from what I did wrong, and move on.
