10 Reasons you should forgive yourself.

Reason 7


It enables you to fulfill ALL God has for you.


Perfect love keeps no record of wrong doings. When Jesus Christ forgives you of a sin, it’s gone! Nothing... not one thing remains. When we have forgiven someone for an indiscretion, we no longer bring up that incident, we do not dwell on it, because it is forgiven. We must do the same with ourselves. When the Lord forgives you — don’t ever bring it up again because He doesn’t remember it. It’s not that He can’t remember it, He CHOOSES not to remember it and you need to do the same. If someone else reminds you of your past, “don’t receive it” and if they are throwing it in your face, then REBUKE them! That is Satan working through them.


The reason to leave the past in the past is exactly the same reason for it’s name… it’s the PAST! You’re are at a point where you need to build yourself up in the Lord by reading His Word daily. The gifts and callings the Lord placed on your life will “always remain in place”. They will always belong to YOU. No one else can do your ministry. No one else can have your purpose or your promises. What is yours, is yours. You are one of a kind. You are now free to become what God intended for your life and to fulfill the purpose for which you were created. What an amazing feeling! Don’t allow a single person to stop you from fulfilling your God-given purpose, for you will find a level of happiness and true contentment when you are being obedient to His call.

10 Reasons you should forgive yourself.

Reason 6


You will be happier, and others will like you more. When you are consumed with guilt, you are more abrasive with others, and you will drive family and friends away. Proverbs 18:24, “A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.” Forgiving yourself frees you to like yourself. Your attitude towards yourself will improve as well as toward others.


Having guilt, regret and condemnation off our shoulders releases us to be free. Freedom to “be and do” whatever the Lord asks of me puts a smile on my face and my future feels bright and hopeful. I feel good inside and I finally have some contentment in my heart and that makes me a happier person.

10 Reasons you should forgive yourself.

Reason 5


Forgiving helps you love others. A possible reason you do not forgive yourself is because you are so disappointed in what you did. Sin is the only thing that brings about self-hatred. It is normal to love yourself, and when you love yourself, it’s easier to love others.


There is a certain level of gratification you receive when you know you have been forgiven and when you know you have forgiven others. You feel “clean, washed in the blood of the Lamb”. That’s such a good feeling and when that weight is no longer there, the freedom that rushes into our soul breathes new life into our hearts and minds. You look at others through a new lens of compassion and love because the Lord extended that to you so graciously.


Your eyes are opened to truly see others and the hurt they are bound in. Your heart gives way to compassion on a level you didn’t have before. Your love for them has increased and now you pray for them, encourage them and lift them up during the storms of their lives. Before you know it, you have birthed a ministry out of the messes of your past.


God is so good. He’s like that you know… to take a bad and horrible situation and turn it around for your good. What you came out of is now the platform for ministry to aid others when you see them going through the same thing you experienced and overcame. Praise the Lord!
