Once you have asked God into your heart and accepted Him as your Savior, Don’t second-guess yourself and look back on your sin and shame. I am sure I am no different than a lot of women. I tell myself over and over again that I am not worthy of God’s love. How can I possibly expect him to love and accept me after all the things I have done wrong in my life? Jeremiah 29:11 says, "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
It’s not always an easy thing to do, as the devil continually wants us to second-guess ourselves and take us away from God’s plan for our lives. But I have resolved not to look back on my sin and shame. God has redeemed me from my past life of faults and failures. He has taken all that guilt away. If I continue to dwell on the past, I will only destroy my future. I can’t afford to let that happen because I know God has a wonderful future for me. He has a purpose for my life that He is revealing to me on a daily basis. God is not done with me yet!
