I’ve made a lot of mistakes in my life .. I’ve hurt people along the way ..  where possible I have asked for forgiveness .. from some I’ve gotten it and we’ve moved on to a better place and understanding ..  and .. from others .. I have been alienated and still am today ..  but what God has shown me and continues to show me daily is simple ..  “hurt people hurt people” ..  it’s a constant circle .. the truth is .. we are all a little broken somewhere .. there’s none of us that are not fighting some sort of battle ..  so when I find myself trying to justify my wrongs .. I remind myself .. there is no justification for wrong  .. there’s only grace and forgiveness ..  for when we admit our wrongs and we do what we can to make them right .. we’ve done our job .. it’s  no longer on us .. however .. we can’t leave out the key ingredient … we must also “forgive ourselves” .. we can’t continue to beat ourselves up .. we have to move forward and not dwell on it anymore .. for friends .. until we do this .. we cannot use the mistakes of our past to benefit those who need help today  .. for just like us ..  they hurt and they need to know ..  God is good .. He is faithful .. He is forgiving .. and .. He is Love .. it’s when we truly realize and believe this  ..  we’ll begin to live in true freedom .. and .. God will get the glory each step of the way  ..  oh yeah ..  Love Wins Period

“For as the heavens are high above the earth .. so great is His mercy toward those who fear Him .. as far as the east is from the west ..  so far has He removed our transgressions from us.”
