for my sake,
I will not remember your sins.' (Isaiah 43:25)
I will not remember, eh? What a statement! So no matter how often I say to God, 'oops I did it again,' the big boss of the universe will dig deep into his memory bank ... and find no recolection of any past slip-ups.
Forgiven AND forgotten. It's dealt with. Love keeps no record of wrongs. End of. Kapow.
Now that's a fresh start. A proper releasing fresh start. And that enables me to smile today.
