When the past is playing in my head.... I am reminded

A song has been playing in my head today and the words not only speak to my soul but seem to be etched there….

Forgiven (by Sanctus Real)
Well the past is playing with my head
And failure knocks me down again
I’m reminded of the wrong
That I have said and done
And that devil just won’t let me forget

In this life
I know what I’ve been
But here in your arms
I know what I am
I’m forgiven
I’m forgiven
And I don’t have to carry
The weight of who I’ve been
Cause I’m forgiven

My mistakes are running through my mind
And I’ll relive my days, in the middle of the night
When I struggle with my pain, wrestle with my pride
Sometimes I feel alone, and I cry

In this life
I know what I’ve been
But here in your arms
I know what I am

When I don't fit in and I don’t feel like I belong anywhere
When I don’t measure up to much in this life
Oh, I’m a treasure in the arms of Christ ‘cause

I’m forgiven
I’m forgiven
And I don’t have to carry
The weight of who I’ve been
Cause I’m forgiven
I’m a treasure in the arms of Christ

Most often in my life, I am my own worst enemy. I make myself miserable much more often than others make me…. I am in need of the reminder that I not only measure up but that I am a true treasure to Jesus Christ. What a joy it is to be forgiven! What amazing grace and glory defined! Each and every day we should be totally and completely awestruck by this. Forgiven! Set Free!
His mercy and grace bring me to my knees….
Your sins have been forgiven
on account of Christ’s name.
1 John 2:12
