Dear Younger Me, 

You are forgiven. The guilt that ravages your mind, body, and heart? You have the freedom to lay it down because Jesus took the weight off you when He died on the cross. He didn’t die for you to continue to live in guilt. You can rest in His peace and rejoice in Him for taking your burden from you, and you can trust Him. Your mistakes don’t make Him love you less or turn His face away. He invites you in with your brokenness, loves you in compassion, and covers you. Not only does He know all your mess-ups and mistakes, but He knows how to work it all out, too. He knows how this will all work for your good and for His glory. Let Jesus take you by the hand and walk with Him, forgiven and free.
