Today I was not feeling in the church going mood. But sometimes you just have to drag yourself there. I'm glad I did. A man in our church gave a talk on the Atonment. All of his thoughts were deep and humble and feeled with gratitude. One part that touched my heart was about guilt. He said that guilt is a tool to be used to call you to repentance. After you repent you need to allow yourself to release that guilt. And when you feel guilt over things that there is no reason for guilt it is of Satan. This was a powerful moment for me. So many times in my everyday life I feel guilt about the laundry not done, the meals no one likes, or the things I don't get accomplished. These are things that do not require repentance. So I allow the guilt to overcome my life and I don't have room to receive His blessings. The more I think of it the less burdened I feel.
So, there's my Sunday devotion for you! Now I'm going to go eat a bag of Milano cookies and feel no guilt when I polish off the entire bag! :)
