FORGIVENESS…

God is so gracious. In Psalm 145 we are advised, “The Lord is near to all who call upon Him, to all who call upon Him in truth. He will fulfill the desire of those who fear Him; He will also hear their cry and will save them” (vv. 18–19).

In Corinthians 13, there is a beautiful passage that speaks about love. It describes that “love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs” (v. 4–5). The portion of the sentence that says love “keeps no record of wrongs” is something we should all imprint on our hearts.

God has said that once we have asked for forgiveness, that’s it. Our wrongs are erased from His mind. In fact, in Micah 7:19, God says He will “throw away all our sins into the deepest part of the sea”.

About Noelene

I am a child of God's. I am also a writer. Mother Teresa once said "I am a little pencil in the hand of a writing God who is sending a love letter to the world". My objective is to be one of God's love letters to the world. I can only achieve this through His grace at work in my life.
