Release Expectations

Guilt haunts us all. Some of it is deserved—we’ve messed up and we need to confess, apologize, and do what we can to make amends. A lot of our guilty feelings, however, are self-imposed and unnecessary. We sometimes feel guilty for things that are beyond our control or not our fault. We feel guilty because of expectations we have about what we ought to be doing or not doing during a particular season of our lives. Or we still feel guilty about things we’ve confessed and for which we’ve already received forgiveness. If we can learn how to release these false feelings of guilt, we can live more peaceful and productive lives.
