I think this quote hits at the heart of one of the hardest things for us humans to do. Forgive ourselves. Our mistakes can play over and over and over again in our minds. But what if we looked at forgiving ourselves as CS Lewis suggests here? That to not forgive ourselves is setting ourselves above God?
If you've sat at his feet and asked for forgiveness, no matter what it was for, he's forgiven you.
Now it's time to stop playing God and forgive yourself.
Let it go.
And move on.
In complete freedom. Yes, there are consequences to our sin and poor choices, but there's also freedom when we release them.
I challenge you to lay it all at his feet and live in that freedom today:)
The Son, though, has an established position, the run of the house. So if the Son sets you free, you are free through and through. John 8:36 (MSG)
