Why do we have such a hard time believing that we are forgiven? Often we it so hard to forget the mistakes we have made. So many people will carry this burden with them all their life. The bible tells us to throw off the weight that burdens us from running a race. Have you ever ran carrying a sand bag or a 20 lb. med ball. I guarantee you did not run as fast and it was a lot harder than if you were just running free from any weight. Ask God to help you so that you can run your race with perseverance.
“I, even I, am he who blots out your transgressions, for my own sake, and remembers your sins no more.
