I would be embarrassed if you knew what I did when I was 12. Or 19, or 21. Or 30. Especially 30.
Thank the Lord that Jesus has wiped the slate clean and I needn't be fearful of standing before Him!
He has removed our sin as far from us as the east is from the west. (Ps. 103:12, NLT)
I can imagine Jesus, seated next to the Father, sadly shaking His head at our lack of understanding. After all, didn't He tell us it's so?
My offenses will be sealed up in a bag; you will cover over my sin. (Job 14:17, NIV)So ... Oh, the stories I could tell!
You will again have compassion on us; you will tread our sins underfoot and hurl all our iniquities into the depths of the sea. (Micah 7:19, NIV)
Let me tell you how the Lord rescued me from the depths of depression.
Let me tell you how He's given me joy even in the midst of trials.
Let me tell you how He knows my every thought and loves me in spite of it all.
Let me tell you my story.
