    Isn’t it good that we ask and He forgives. As far as the east is from the west, so far hath He removed our transgressions from us.–Psalms 103:12
    Micah 7: 18 Who is a God like unto thee, that pardoneth iniquity, and passeth by the transgression of the remnant of His heritage? He retainith not His anger for ever, because He delighteth in mercy.
    19. He will turn again, He will have compassion upon us; He will subdue our iniquities; and thou will cast all their sins into the depths ot the sea.
    The Cadtherdals sing a song ” No fishing in the deep dark sea.”
    Time to stop fishing if He has forgiven us.
    Happy Easter and have a great day.

    Well Jeff, here I go again. I must agree with you about my sin that involved my children.
    I have many regrets. My guilt assults me about my being such a perfectionist Mother.
    My two sons are gone, and I do grieve that even now I can’t appologize to them. My daughter of course is still with us and that has also effected her personality somewhat. I am so thankful that now, since I am not only saved but have found that I can approach my Lord begging
    forgiveness and have been forgiven, guilt still raises his ugly head and tells me how I failed, and I am responsible for my sons deaths. (They had a very poor self image). Thank God that I can not only stop knitting the noose but desltroy it altogether. I just do have to keep very short accounts with God. Thank you for your message…there is hope!

    I’m won’t dispute you on your theology/doctrine about grace, forgiveness or the enemy. But another possibility regarding guilt is that the Lord leaves you with a strong sense of regret to further burn His hatred of sin, not into your theology/doctrine, but into your psyche. I speak from painful experience, both past and present. Just a thought.

      “i’m won’t”?? Make that “I won’t”

    Ironically, I have to declare…. Guilty! The Evil One uses guilt to try to wedge into my faith and I have to continuously remind myself that much stronger men of faith have struggled just as I do. And while that is not a crutch to stay in that pool of guilt, it is comforting to know that I am not alone and when I turn the guilt over, that too is forgiven. Cannot describe the calmness of mind and spirit when THAT happens!! Peace
