I am supported by the unconditional love of God.

Mistakes are a natural part of learning--just as falling down is a natural part of learning to walk. But when I make a serious mistake, I may find it hard to forgive myself for what I have said or done.
I cannot make amends if I remain stuck in a cycle of self-blame or criticism. Instead, I remember that God loves me unconditionally. I take responsibility for my actions, and with God's grace, I do my best to resolve the situation. This may require a heartfelt apology, a change in my behavior or another step. I trust God to guide me to the best response.

As I open to the grace of God, I am able to forgive myself and accept God's unconditional love.

Now I commend you to God and to the message of his grace, a message that is able to build you up.--Acts 20:32.Inspired by this message? Want to talk to friends about it? Share your thoughts here.
