|As I continue thinking of what I'm thankful for, I was reminded of God's forgiveness, and what it has meant to me. When my children were taken away, I found myself in a really bad place. Guilt overwhelmed me, and I truly believed that what I had done was unforgivable.|
I would beg God for forgiveness, and yet I didn't feel forgiven. As I read scripture I kept going back to the book of Psalm, as I felt I could relate to David. I kept hoping that if God forgave David then He could forgive me.
God brought me to the point of realizing that it was Satan who wanted me to feel unforgiven. It was Satan who wanted me to doubt God's word. So today I choose to believe God's promise of forgiveness no matter how I feel.
1 John 1:9
"If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness."
"As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us."
