It’s Time to Forgive Yourself

Kathi Pelton

As I awoke this morning I saw our good Father breaking chains of regret, shame, humiliation and bitterness off of His sons and daughters. Then I saw Him lift their heads and say,

“It’s time to forgive yourself.”

There was such love and kindness in His touch and in His eyes. He then removed heavily weighted backpacks that each one was carrying that were packed with regrets. They were regrets about decisions that they had made, sins they had repeatedly done, relationships they had violated and pain they had caused. I knew that these sons and daughters had opened these backpacks many times and look through them which caused them to hold onto unforgiveness against themselves.

As the Father removed the weight of regrets off of their backs angels came with jars of water and oil to wash and anoint their feet, their hands and their heads. The Father then lifted them to their feet and presented them to His Son, who had His hand outstretched to them. As they took His hand He began to dance with them as a bridegroom would dance with his bride.

As they allowed Jesus to embrace them He whispered in their ear the words from Song of Songs 4:7,

“You are altogether beautiful, my darling; there is no flaw in you.”

God is removing the regrets that have caused His sons and daughters to be weighed down. He is saying, “It is now time to forgive yourself.” Exchange that pack of regrets for the beauty of redemption. Take the hand of your Beloved Jesus and let Him whisper in your ear the words that you’ve longed to hear and that He’s longed to say,

“You are altogether beautiful, my darling; there is no flaw in you.”

Today is the day and now is the time to let all regrets go and allow the beauty that He sees to wash over you.
