Forgive Yourself

Greetings My Friends;
Years ago, when I was still working, one of the men I worked with was a real mess. He was divorced, hated his job, and if there was one chance in 1 million to make a mistake, he found it. We worked nights. If he was having a tough day, he would yell at the top of his voice that God hates him, but that was okay because he hated God.
At that time, I wasn't born again yet, but it still gave me chills to hear that. I tried to tell him that God did love him, but he didn't want to hear about it. His life was so messed up, that he lost his job because of a number of things he really messed up on. I believe that the devil blinded him to the truth.
Since then I have run across a couple more people that are convinced that God hates them too. I don't know the particulars in these cases, but it is obvious they carry a deep guilt about something.
If anyone has the slightest clue about how much Jesus loves them, they would have a good starting point. Jesus died for our sins. His death forgave past, present, and future sins. It doesn't matter how bad we messed up, how horrible our deeds, Jesus blood covered it all.
The only thing we need to know is that His love saved us, If we accept Him and what He did for us. If all of the mistakes that are on your conscience are so bad that you hate God, you can have all of them erased. I believe that a lot of people who say they hate God, are actually crying out for help, because they think they are too far gone for forgiveness.
Well my friends, let me say this. Jesus does not see things the way we do. He looks at us with love in His heart. He sees us as people that were created for heaven. The catch is, we have to accept what He has done for us.
Remember the story about one lost sheep and how the 99 were Left in the pasture, while the good shepherd went after the lost one? He put that one on His shoulders and brought it back. So you see, you can never be so lost, that Jesus cannot find you.
Don't waste another day of your life. There is absolutely nothing that you can do that is so bad you will not be forgiven,. There is one sin that cannot be forgiven, and remember this, it is willfully rejecting Jesus and his works.
So forgive yourself, truly repent, accept Jesus as Savior, and spend the rest of your stay on Earth with peace and joy, and the love of God.
God Bless You And Remember
Jesus Loves You
Prayer of Salvation;
"Oh God in Heaven, I believe with all of my heart that Jesus has been raised from the dead. I receive your Word, and I repent of sin. I renounce the past. Come into my heart, Lord Jesus. I receive my forgiveness. I receive the new birth, cleansed and washed in the Word and in the precious blood of Jesus. Fill me with Your Spirit, in Jesus name amen".
