Do you ever just have days where you need a do-over? Man, sometimes I want to kick my own booty for reacting or acting in a way that I know is not right.
Pardon me if I’m not completely forthright about what I’ve done…but it’s not something I want to spell out for the whole internet world to read. I just know that I did something that I knew was wrong and as soon as I did it I had that gut feeling that said “Liz, what are you doing?”
Don’t worry it’s not about harming my kids…it’s just about me making a bad decision and realizing that it was selfish and ultimately hurtful to others close to me.
I’m not even sure if I should post this or not.
The one thing I know is that even when I mess up big time God’s grace meets me in my emotional pit. I know that this feeling I have in my gut is the Holy Spirit gently telling me what I did was wrong. In fact I’ve realized the difference between guilt & condemnation in my life. Guilt is a realization of the wrong and feeling remorse for it. Condemnation is more accusatory and can come from the enemy of our souls and even from ourselves. I’m thankful that I can walk in God’s grace and forgiveness today. Yet I also need to do a self-inventory of what’s going on in my life and steps I need to take to make better decisions in the future.
I’m forever a student, always learning about living out my christianity.
