No Condemnation

2B6665D1-0AAE-4274-9D7B-300368521767D907A43D-6D90-4ED4-ABC5-40105CE374B48E0DAF93-849D-4778-BE9C-1FDF58D6D256Do you ever plan to do or say one thing and the next thing you know, you are doing exactly what you were trying to avoid or saying what you know you shouldn’t?  That is me, a lot of the time, honestly.  And do you know you pushes my buttons the most and I react too quickly for my own spiritual good?  My spouse, of course!  After forty-five years together, he still knows how to upset me.  But I am figuring out that he can’t push my buttons unless I let him.  I sin because I am still a sinner, saved by God’s grace.  I am being saved from sin daily and sometimes I make wrong choices and have to turn around (again), repent, and then start moving forward.  I know that I belong to Jesus, so there is no condemnation.  There is, however, the Holy Spirit, nudging me to make things right and not to hold a grudge.  Sometimes I get so frustrated with myself because I can feel the anger or bitterness burning inside me, and I know that I should be talking to the Lord right then, not spouting off like an uncontrolled fountain at my spouse.  I am getting better, but I am not “there” yet.  I just know that I am God’s child and I don’t want Him to be disappointed in me.  So I keep going back to the altar of repentance.  Is that something you need to do today?  Salvation is only found in Jesus.  There is no condemnation to those who are His children.  Isn’t that good news?  Moving forward is much better than looking and going backwards…you make more progress in your Christian walk that way.

Have a blessed and forward-moving day!

  1. I think we’re soul sisters! I feel exactly the same as you. It’s so frustrating because I work, with God’s help, so hard to combat my self, but the slightest thing when I have a short fuse and I’m back to being what I hate. I am getting better. My husband says he has noticed marked improvement! Give all the credit to God!!! 😁

  2. Husbands ahhhhh!!! Lol
    I guess it’s so because we spend more time with them. Marriage shows us who we really are.
    With regards to sin, I have noticed that I sin more when I focus on not sinning as supposed to just pleasing God. Does that even make sense? I will try again haha! I sin more when I focus on the don’ts more than the dos.😊 So when I wake up everyday, I remind myself of what I should focus on for the day. I still slip but I do better😊
