    "Yet guilt that is inappropriate or not dealt with quickly “robs us of our joy and all the delight we should be feeling in this life..."

    1) It was wrong to try to change my innate being.

    2) I felt extreme sorrow for trying to change my innate being.

    3) I gave up trying to change my innate being.

    4) I accepted God's forgiveness for trying to change my innate being.

    5) I forgave myself for trying to change my innate being.

    6) I made restitution for trying to change my innate being and accepted myself for being who/what I am.

    All the guilt went away - immediately. Cecily has this right; it is wrong to feel guilt over being who and what you were created to be.

    It's amazing . . . no, it's terrible how our guilt over something little that we've done, or have't done, can keep us from coming to church when forgiveness is just a prayer away. Thanks for the reminder, Cecily.
