Getting Past Your Failure
My guilt has overwhelmed me like a burden too heavy to bear.
- Psalms 38:4
Your biggest sins are not too big for God’s grace.
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.
- John 1:9
For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more.
- Jeremiah 31:34
You are not what you have done. You are who God says you are.
Anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!
- 2 Corinthians 5:17
You can’t change your past, but Christ can change your future.
I don’t mean to say that I have already achieved these things or that I have already reached perfection. But I press on to possess that perfection for which Christ Jesus first possessed me. 13 No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, 14 I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us.
- Philippians 3:12-15
