As I read the 14th chapter of Hosea this morning, it reminded me of how easy God has made it for us to be forgiven. I think that we sometimes wonder if it is too easy. The ease contradicts what the world teaches us which is that you have to work for anything you receive. In my own life, I have accepted that I have been forgiven for the sins I commited before I became a Christian. But sometimes I have a hard time forgiving myself for the sins I have commited after I became a Christian. I know that Jesus' death on cross covered all my sins, but now I know better and my sins frustrate me. Just something else that God is working on in my heart. We'll add it to the very long list. I'm just so glad He never gives up on me!

Have a great day as we are servants to all

Yes! It is harder for me to forgive myself than to receive His forgiveness. It seems I can encourage others in this area, but at times I don't believe it for my own life. I'm still a work in progress, I know. Praise the Lord He is still working on me.
