We Are Not Defined By Our Mistakes

Mistakes

Somedays we need this written out for us! We are not defined by our mistakes or sins.

Psalm 103: 8-12 says,

The Lord is compassionate and merciful,
    slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love.
He will not constantly accuse us,
    nor remain angry forever.
He does not punish us for all our sins;
    he does not deal harshly with us, as we deserve.
For his unfailing love toward those who fear him
    is as great as the height of the heavens above the earth.
He has removed our sins as far from us
    as the east is from the west.

Rejoice today knowing that you are forgiven!

Have a blessed day!

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 2 Corinthians 12:9 (ESV)

Sometimes Satan rears his ugly head and tries to remind me of all my failures, my weaknesses, and my mistakes.

Satan whispers to me, “Cyndi, you’re not good enough”.

You’re not a good enough

  • wife
  • mother
  • pastor’s wife
  • daughter/sister
  • friend~just fill in the blank.

Thankfully scripture reminds me that in my weaknesses Christ is strong!

No, on my own I’m not good enough, but with Jesus Christ and his sacrifice on the cross, I am!

So I will boast in my weaknesses.

Today if you’re feeling like you’re not good enough, let me remind you~~

because of the cross of Christ, You Are!

  • You are forgiven!
  • You have been set free!
  • You are loved!

But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved— Ephesians 2:4-5 (ESV)

Have a wonderful Sabbath!
