Pain 2 Purpose: Part III

“We can’t move forward with all that baggage. Our old wounds can’t heal if we keep carrying around the remnants of the mess that caused them in the first place.” – #ToddCPittman

Yep, I Said It!

…and so did 1 John 1:9 (NIV) – If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.

”Turning pain to purpose, we’re on a roll, Day 3. Many times we end up feeling guilty about our painful situations. You know what I’m talking about, we start asking ourselves – “Maybe I should’ve . . .” or “What if . . .” Today is a good time to push back and reflect. The scriptures this morning are a good reminder that we shouldn’t govern or judge ourselves. When we do that it just makes the weight of our circumstances heavier while we’re trying to lighten the load. Let’s stop questioning ourselves and recreating the ”What if” scenario. Hey, if we messed up it’s a done deal, let it go. The bottom line is when we mess up, we’ve got to confess up, in order for us to rise up. We’ve got to know that we serve a merciful God and when we put our energy toward the confession of our sins instead of making excuses and feeling guilty, the weight causing us pain will be lifted and His forgiveness will give us the strength needed to move forward in our purpose. Get rid of the baggage man!” – #ToddCPittman
