Romans 8

Romans 8:1 "Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus"
Isn't this a powerful verse? I've been meditating on Romans 8 for the past month or so, and am really trying to take this verse (and the rest of the passage) to heart. We are completely forgiven and free in Christ. I struggle so much with condemning myself for every little thing I do (or don't do), that I often fail to experience Christ's acceptance and grace. I feel like it's a balance though, between being conscious of my sin and yet not weighing myself down with guilt. I am already completely acceptable and pleasing to God, because of Christ's death on the cross and forgiveness for my sin. Now I just have to figure out how to accept myself...

Well, from what I have read about you and what I have learned thus far, you are a beautiful, intelligent woman whose heart is full of kindness for others AND of the Lord- and this is from someone who has really just starting learning about you! You are a Bright Lamp and Witness for the Lord and I am thankful I've gotten the opportunity to "meet" you!
