What a wonderful word!
The idea of our past mistakes being forgiven absolutely.
Are there still consequences for our actions? You bet.
But now we are not stuck in the past,
having instead been given a new way truth and life in which we can walk,
a future of promise.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the LORD,
“plans to prosper you and not to harm you.
Plans to give you hope and a future.”
