"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.
