No Guilt, No Shame

Cindricka Arrington


“For as the heavens are high above the earth, so great is His mercy toward those who fear him. (12) As far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us.” Psalms 103:11-12 NKJV

Often it can feel that our faults and shortcomings are so overwhelming that we may never see the promises of God within our lives.  As moms, wives, and girlfriends we often forgive others but not ourselves. The scriptures above remind us that God’s mercy toward us is limitless when we reverence and honor him.

There is no quota of mercy or love with God.

Unlike baseball, we as Christians don’t operate under the three strikes then you’re out of the game rule. We don’t have to be perfect, flawless, the best cook, the best looking or the tidiest.  When we come to God broken, weak, vulnerable and ready to forfeit our own doubts and insecurities, He’s ever ready like the energizer bunny to remove every defeating thought or action.  It’s comforting to know that as far as the California shores are from the African Saharan desert, God has removed every offense. Therefore, we have no guilt or shame because He has graced us for every moment.

BIBLICAL TRUTH

“For as the heavens are high above the earth, so great is His mercy toward those who fear him. (12) As far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us.” Psalms 103:11-12 NKJV

STAY GLAMOROUS

Walk with your head high, your shoulders back, and your arms outstretched. Receive others just as God has received you. Just as you are. You have limitless opportunities to receive everything God has spoken.
