Stop Beating Yourself Up

DAILY VERSE

“Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert”

Isaiah 43:18–19

DEVOTION

How many of us haven’t made mistakes or bad decisions? Everyone falls short, it’s how we learn. The problem arrises when we continue to look back, not as a learned lesson, but beating ourselves up for things we cannot change. True repentance comes when we know we’ve done wrong and we ask God for forgiveness, turning away from that sin and moving forward. God doesn’t hold that past sin against you, so why should you?
