Is Your Past Too Dark?
Is your past too dark? Is there anything in your past for which you have never forgiven yourself? Do you have painful regrets? If you believe that your past is too dark, or if you did something long ago of which you are still ashamed and you carry that load upon your heart, let it go! Go to God and, if you have not asked His forgiveness, do, He will abundantly pardon! And then, forgive yourself and go on, free!
