Guilt is one of the most debilitating emotions there is. It holds us hostage and keeps us locked up in room filled with shame and remorse and regret. What I'm about to teach you I can NOT stress enough. It can make the difference in moving on or staying stuck. Every decision that you made in the past you made with information you had at that current moment. Albeit it may have been misguided or misinformed but it was all you had to work with. The day you blew it, and I'm sure there's several days when you blew it, you didn't start your day off saying "I can't wait to begin this day and let everyone down. I just can't wait to fail today." You did the best you could with what you had.
I want you to know something REALLY important. God isn't mad at you. You're not being punished by Him. Now, you may be dealing with the consequences of your actions, that's cause and affect. But you're not being punished by the Creator of the universe. So, let go of the guilt. Drop the shame. Relinquish the remorse. Step out of the victim role. Holding onto the guild is your choice. Remember, guilt is ALWAYS from the enemy because it ALWAYS forces you to look backwards taking your focus away from your future.
