The last thing I need to be doing is blogging...

I have so much to do even as I type but I just felt the need to sit and think.

So here are a few random things from me this week:

1. Rod and Morgan have an issue with allowing spoons, forks, and etc to go down into the garbage disposal. Even if we have a cover, it always seems to get moved. Well, tonight I was cleaning the kitchen and I had to stick my down the disposal (which is a big production followed by gagging...and yes I wear gloves) and get a part out of the disposal. Morgan wanted me to buy some spreaders for her to put her cream cheese on her bagels in the mornings and little did I know that one of them fell down the disposal. So, it jammed it and I reached my hand down there (with a Lysol wipe) and got it out. Y'all I FORGOT TO TURN THE DISPOSAL OFF!!!! Fortunately, it jammed or my hand would have been mangled once I got the spreader out. I thought I broke the thing then I realized that there is a reset button and I pushed it and it started back. I got chills all over me when I realized what could have happened to my hand. Thank you LORD for not allowing that.

1 John 1:9
9If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.

Rods parents surprised us and showed up at our front door this morning. They came from Pell City and asked if we wanted to get lunch and go to the thrift store. Well, I can not pass on the thrift store. I found some cute things for Morgan and her and her pop were in the store playing. He was getting her good telling her that he was going to take her dresses and etc. Well, she would laugh and try to grab the dresses and hold on to them. No big deal. Well, tonight Morgan set on the couch and said Mommy I need to call Pop and tell him I am sorry about the dresses. She said it over and over and over. Rod called Pop and Morgan apologized SEVERAL times. First off, she did not do anything wrong. It broke all of our hearts because she thought she had hurt her Pops feelings.

My first words to Rod were, "Rod, oh no she is getting this from me." I will beat the dead horse apologizing over stuff. Especially with the Lord. I got a message loud and clear tonight that I needed to let some things go and accept His forgiveness for my sins instead of constantly fretting over them and telling God how sorry I am. I seriously can think up things that happened two years ago or more and keep on bringing them up when He has already removed my sins as far as the east is to the west. I know it hurts Gods heart when we continue in unbelief and He has already forgiven us yet we keep beating ourselves up. That is such a tool of the enemy. Yes, we have consequences and we won't forget where He has brought us from....but we have got to accept the forgiveness He gave us on the cross and move on. It puts us in bondage to guilt and shame when we continually do this. Godly sorrow leads to repentance and if we have confessed and repented we are forgiven, no matter what anyone says.

I am so out of time because I REALLY need to read my bible and go to bed.

I so identified with this post. For years I would confess the same sins of my past over and over to God. I was so broken-hearted over them. I just didn't see how He could have forgiven me. You are right when you say it is a tool of the enemy. Praise the Lord He opened my eyes to His truth.
