Face it

Those who look to him for help will be radiant with joy; no shadow of shame will darken their faces. Ps. 34:5

It’s important to face our sin and receive forgiveness from Christ, but holding on to guilt after that keeps us tied to the past. Shame keeps us looking down and back while redemption allows us to look up and out. Face what Christ came to bring us to rather than what He came to help us escape from.

Lord, help me to keep looking up and moving forward.
