Don’t be so aware of your guilt, that you are unaware of your freedom! Therefore, there is now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit (Romans 8:1). Sometimes we can become so riddled with guilt that we lose all sense of freedom. You have to forgive yourself and let it go. Don’t incarcerate yourself with your own guilt. Forgiveness is the key that sets the captives free. Once you repent, God forgives you, and so should you. There is liberty in Christ Jesus! —Stand firm therefore in the liberty that Christ has made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage. (Galatians 5:1)

The path isn’t a straight line; it’s a spiral. You continually come back to things you thought you understood and see deeper truths.

Where does your security lie? Is God your refuge, your hiding place, your stronghold, your shepherd, your counselor, your friend, your redeemer, your savior, your guide? If He is, you don’t need to search any further for security.
— Elisabeth Elliot
no matter how sad I am this never fails to make me laugh
I cannot stop watching!
We know that in September, we will wander through the warm winds of summer’s wreckage. We will welcome summer’s ghost.
