Sweet Forgiveness

today's reading.
Psalms 130    Out of the depths I cry to you, O LORD...

the blog.
Do you ever get into a mode where you feel lousy and start thinking I'm such a terrible person, how could God really forgive me? I go there sometimes, especially if I slip up and sin in an area in which I really know better (like with my tongue). So Psalm 130:3-4 hit me powerfully. "If you, O Lord, should mark iniquities, O Lord, who could stand? But with you there is forgiveness, that you may be feared." These verses gave me encouragement to keep up the good fight and were an excellent reminder that I need to be thanking God continually for His forgiveness.

So what did Psalm 130 convey to you about forgiveness? How often do you thank the Lord for His forgiveness? Tami W.
