READ: John 21:4-17; Rom. 8:1-4; Eph. 4:31-32; Phil. 3:7-16; 1 Thess. 5:9-11; 1 John 1:8-9. HEART ISSUE: What past failures are you still holding onto? What is inhibiting you from receiving God's grace? PRAYER FOCUS: Father, forgive me for keeping a record of my own wrongs. I give it to You now and choose to trust Jesus' sacrifice as sufficient to set me free. Amen. (PART 2) Many women struggle with self-hatred.
