White As Snow
One thing I really struggle with is guilt, and I see this often in other women as well. It seems sometimes that I’m prey to guilt more than I should be. I rehash things I should have done. I feel like a failure. The guilt comes back every hour to haunt me, to make my stomach feel like it’s full of lead.
I know we’re all human, we’re all imperfect. And yet I find myself striving to do absolutely everything right. When I fail, or when I fail someone I care about, it eats away at me. I don’t think about how I can learn from my mistakes; instead, I revisit what I did wrong, over and over again.
I’m starting to realize that when guilt keeps returning to me, it’s like a voice accusing me inside my head over and over. And Satan is the Accuser. Revelations 12:10 reminds us that Jesus, the Lamb of God, has triumphed over Satan, our enemy and accuser.
It doesn’t mean Satan doesn’t take potshots at us. But if I remember Jesus’ victory and love, the guilt and accusations melt away. I am covered by Jesus’ blood—it forgives and transforms me.
FAITH STEP: What guilt is plaguing you? Pray to God to be able to release it, to trust in Jesus’ blood that has washed you white as snow.
