Terrific Tuesday with May from Day & Night Devotions

Today's Terrific Tuesday guest is May Frank who writes at Day & Night Devotions.

May Frank is a spiritual mentor on a mission to join others in studying and spreading God’s word. She is married and the mother of two. In this post she wrote for today,
May stands ready to do the Lord’s will, whatever it may be:

Can God forgive us of our sinful acts? 1 John 1:19 tells us that if we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.

We all have done some sort of sinful act against one another at one time or another in our life. As a result, many of us carry guilt and hurt. Only God can rid and heal us from of those burdens. God is a generous forgiver, stand ready to forgive us the very moment we sinned. He has promise his children if we confess He will forgive us. His ways are not like ways. Sometimes we have a hard time forgiving each other, but never God.

Throughout the Bible, God demonstrates acts of forgiveness to some of the most dreadful sins; David’s adultery with Bathsheba, and the blasphemy and persecution of Paul. If he could forgive them, he can and will forgive us.

God and only God can forgive us of our sins. Once He forgives us He purposely will not remember our sins anymore. God doesn’t hold a grudge nor does he keep a record of our sins. Our forgiveness is total and complete by the Grace of God. God know that our forgiveness of sins is our greatest need.
