… We thought he brought it on himself, that God was punishing him for his own failures. But it was our sins that did that to him, that ripped and tore and crushed him— our sins!

He took the punishment, and that made us whole. Through his bruises we get healed. We’re all like sheep who’ve wandered off and gotten lost. We’ve all done our own thing, gone our own way. And GOD has piled all our sins, everything we’ve done wrong, on him, on him. (‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭53:2)

There was a time when I couldn’t ‘get over’ the fact that I had made a mistake.The cloud of recrimination wouldn’t leave me. Toxic self-doubt entered my life and I constantly carried the painful thoughts of ‘if only I had done it this way ..!’

I knew (in my head) that Jesus had been tasked by GOD to carry all my failures, but that truth just never sank properly down from my hardening head to my breaking heart.

Then one day a guy at our church (that I didn’t particularly like), approached me and said, “I was praying for you and believe GOD told me to tell you to write down all your failings on one side of a piece of paper, and on the opposite side write down all the good that you’ve learnt from your mistakes. When you’ve done it, then burn the paper and give it all to the Lord! You will then be free “

As I didn’t particularly like the guy, I didn’t tell my wife what he’d said, but on the way home she just came out and said, “Whatever that guy has just told you to do, I believe you should do it!”

I did, and to see all my hurts, pains and failures being taken from me into my beloved Jesus, the Holy Christ of GOD, was the most saddening and yet freeing experiences ever!

Thank You Lord for your Gift of Freedom. ❤️

If we boast that we have no sin, we’re only fooling ourselves and are strangers to the truth. But if we freely admit our sins when his light uncovers them, he will be faithful to forgive us every time
