The Guilt Post

Are there things in your life that you know you should do, but you just can't bring yourself to do them? Either you are too busy, or too unmotivated or too bored with those things or you feel so bad for ignoring it for so long that it's hard to muster up the courage/motivation/effort to do it again?

Me too.

But then when you finally do it.  There is relief. There is comfort.  There is the joy that you had all those other times you exercised, did your devotions, went to church or Bible study, made dinner for your wife, gave her a massage, cleaned...anything.  Guilt can be a good thing.  It's just when we let it linger for too long it becomes bad.  When we still feel bad today about not exercising that one day last month.  God wants us to forget what is behind and strain toward what lies ahead.  Here's to another post.  Maybe even soon.
