Forgiving ourselves — 4 Comments

  1. Been fighting cancer for 13 years. Have prayed for healing for 13 years. Recently got another bad report. Doctors are not very encouraging. I keep feeling like it must be my fault. God has answered so many prayers. Trying to understand. This hurts the most.

    • Oh, Dave I am so sorry! Please remember that we live in a fallen world and our bodies deal with all sorts of illness. God loves you! No matter what the doctors say or what your body does. You are a child of the King of kings and eternally loved by God. Good people get sick. Good people fight cancer. Your illness isn’t a punishment. You are fighting a battle and God promises to never leave or forsake you. Jesus said in this world we will have trouble and those troubles come in various ways. Please, please remember you are loved an cared for by God. A friend of mine who has fought a disease for years, said she was crying out to God one day because she couldn’t feel Him and didn’t believe He was with her. She said she felt His reply that He was holding her so close against His chest that she couldn’t see Him. Oh, Dave God is with you. He loves you and He’s holding you close. Please remember, no matter what happens, He is holding you close and you are eternally safe in His hands. I’m praying for you, dear brother. Praying!

  2. Amen, sister! No sin is too big for God to forgive. I’m so thankful that our Lord is so merciful and full of grace. Hallelujah! XOXOX
