Burn it away

Oh, what joy for those whose disobedience is forgiven, whose sin is put out of sight!
Psalms 32:1 NLT

On Dec 30 my husband and I wrote down everything we were feeling guilty about and read them out loud. This wasn’t necessarily a confession but more of a let’s get this off your chest. It also wasn’t something that had anything to do with each other. One of mine was not calling my friends and mom more. After we read each other’s list.I set them on fire and watched them burn in the snow. Fun fact: I love setting things on fire lol. It was theraputic to watch them burn though. Never to be brought up again. No condemnation, no judgement, no nothing. Remember that as you are working on your new self in 2018.

as far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us.
Psalm 103:12 NIV

Read this whole Psalm. It is really good. One of my favorites. Sometimes we put too much pressure on ourselves when we mess up but God doesn’t. He gives us new mercies everyday
