Inspirational Mondays - "Have No Fear"
Have you ever felt ashamed or fearful of something you've done or the person you've become?
My pastor preached a very poignant message recently about the fact that we tend to let fear or shame take such control over our lives that we block out all the positives and blessings God may have in store for us.
If that's you then I want you to just "LET GO AND LET GOD!"
God says that no matter what you've done and who you think you are, he will forgive, restore, protect and bless you. He wants you to repent and bring your troubles to him for him to fix. It's what he loves to do. He wants us to be able to live our lives filled with joy and not with fear or shame.
Letting go allows God to work in tremendous ways. Don't stay stuck in your fear/shame. Pray about it, let it go. Ask God for forgiveness then forgive yourself and truly leave whatever it is that had such a strong hold on your life behind.
This week's Inspirational Quote is:
1 John 1:9, "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from ALL unrighteousness."
I wish you all a blessed and prosperous week.
Happy Monday Ohana! :)
