It’s ok to forgive yourself

“You’re allowed to forgive yourself for your biggest and smallest mistakes
and you’re allowed to be kind to yourself,
you’re allowed to look in the mirror and actually like the person you see.

You’re allowed to set yourself free
from your own expectations.”

– Rania Naim

Don’t blame yourself for the wrong choices of others
Even if the voices keep telling you, “this is all your fault”
For a season I believed these lies until my God spoke clearly
“After repentance is forgiveness
After forgiveness comes healing”

Over and over remind yourself that your faults
Do not chain you to the sins of others
They chose at their own free will
They acted with their own free hands
God has your case, He’ll bring forth your righteousness

It’s ok when reality knocks down your expectations
When pain has you pinned against the floor
In every disappointment, God is whispering,
“My child, I have something better for you”
