Guilt is an emotion that keeps us stuck in a circle of regrets. Sometimes we do things to ourselves or others without  understanding the effects it has on our lives or their lives.

Guilt keeps us in bondage and it takes a long time to get free.

We have to become aware that something is not right and find a way to fix it. If we say or do something to others the only way we can be free is by forgiving and apologizing for our behavior.

When we hurt others, we hurt ourselves. We feel so bad inside. Then,  we have a need to get rid of all the stuff that’s going on inside of us.

My story: I didn’t know I was walking around with guilt on the inside of me. Until, it got to a point I was having a nervous breakdown. God led me to a book and it’s called The Child Within.

It gives you a warning  before you start reading.It warns that when you’re reading the book and you have an emotional reaction you should stop reading immediately and feel what you’re feeling. The book helped me identify the root cause of my guilt.

So, I was sexually molested as a child and I used to pray that my molester would die and he would leave me alone. My thinking was that if he died he couldn’t touch me again. He died when I was 13 years old and I totally forgot all about it, until I was about 40 years old when I was reading this book.

It was talking about the guilt we walked around with, and we don’t even know that it’s causing a lot of chaos in our lives. I remember the day that he died and I didn’t even grief for him  because I hated him so bad. That’s when I broke down and cried, and let it all out — the guilt, the shame, the hate, the grief and the anger I had toward him. All those years of pains I was walking around in was gone when I was finished crying. The  little girl inside of me was trapped in a grown up body for so long  and I was breathing  for the first time.

3 Tips To Live Free of Guilt:

You can live free from blame and guilt. Living free from blame means removing guilt and shame.

1. Jesus died to remove our sins and free us from Guilt. Guilt keeps us separated from God because the weight of our shame causes us to run away from God. Just like Adam and Eve, they covered their shame from God. And it removed the beauty of vulnerability they had with God.

2. Confess. If you know you’ve done something that is not right, confess your faults one to another.

3. Forgive.  God is able to forgive you as you let him fix it for you. Also, you must forgive others as well. The Bible states he will forgive us as we forgive others. “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” 1 John 1:9

Please don’t walk through life suffering for the things you did in the past .

No more masks.  My book gives my testimony of how I overcame trauma  and started living in the light. I hope it encourages you to let go and let God.
