There’s a reason the windshield is bigger than the rear view mirror.  Your future matters more than your past!  God’s grace is greater than your sin.  You thought the problem was your calendar, your marriage, your job.  In reality, it’s this unresolved guilt!  Don’t indulge it.  Don’t drown in the bilge of your own condemnation.  What you did was not good.  But your God is good.  And He will forgive you.

He is ready to write a new chapter in your life.  Say with Paul, “Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I strain to reach the end of the race and receive the prize for which God is calling us” (Philippians 3:13-14). Your salvation has nothing to do with your work and everything to do with the finished work of Christ on the  cross.  Rejoice in the Lord’s mercy!
