Job 10:15 - If I am guilty--woe to me! Even if I am innocent, I cannot lift my head, for I am full of shame and drowned in my affliction.
We sometimes feel guilty when our life is going well and think we don’t deserve to be happy. Do you believe eventually something bad is going to happen even when good things are happening? It takes courage to be happy because maybe you believe you don’t deserve to be happy. Sometimes we’ve had ourselves wrapped up so tightly in guilt from the past that we forget what it feels like to just enjoy the moment. Don’t be afraid. Let go of your guilt and learn to be happy once more. Do you feel guilty when good things happen? Are you wrapped up in guilt? I’d love to hear from you.
