Repentance With Zero Shame

  1. Excellent Word! There is such freedom in repentance….unconfessed sin is bondage and shame…repentance unlocks forgiveness, grace and restoration with God. My sins they are many, His mercy is more! So thankful for His love, grace and forgiveness. Your words are light and real hope.

  2. What a worthwhile read Julie! As I reflected on your words, two scriptures came to mind.
    The first is Psalm 139:23-24

    ā€œ Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.ā€œ

    For me personally I find that I deceive myself by going through my busy days with the mindset of ā€œIā€™m a good person.ā€ The problem is that no one is good, only Jesus was good and he was good for us. When Iā€™m not intentional about being in alignment with the Holy Spirit I can veer off course without even realizing. I pray this scripture often asking God to reveal in me anything that is not of him.

    The second scripture that came to me is John 16:33, ā€œI have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

    We live in a fallen word but that peace that surpasses all understanding Comes from the knowledge that the battle has already been one and that we come from a place of
    Victory.

    I am excited to see what the Lord will do this year and am grateful for our connection my friend!

  3. Julie, I appreciate your thoughtful reminders about repentance. The image of the Potter’s wheel reminds me that God continues to mold and shape my life, and repentance is one of the Creator’s tools. Keeping you in prayer as you begin your studies in earnest. God’s peace!

    1. Hi Richard, thank you so much for prayers. My life has picked up a study pace this week that is new for me. The balance between school and home is still tentative. Glad this post spoke to you. It is not I, but He who knows when to remind us and draw us closer to a particular truth. May God bless you this next day.
