Yesterday I had MOHS Surgery to remove a Basal Cell Carcinoma spot just over my right eye brow - skin cancer. Surgery went well - but had a lot of pain and right now I can't sleep! It is 4AM! They took 45 minutes just to close it up with stitches! I no longer have that pretty face!! LOL! Only time will tell what kind of scar I have - but I will have one and probably see it every time I look in the mirror. That's what I get for laying in the sun as a foolish kid years ago. I really abused my body with the sun and now I am paying for it - very dumb choice wasn't it?
Sin is like that. Most sin catches up with us. The good news is that Christ will quickly forgive us of our sin if we but repent. He wipes the slate clean - and remembers them no more. Aren't you glad that when our sins are forgiven that we also remember them no more?? WRONG!! Not only are they in our memory banks, but many of the scars we take through life - I know I have some of those as well.
Why not today repent of any sin you have in your life? Get them forgiven and correct the mistakes you can and then move on. The memories? Scars? Let them be reminders that God forgives and will help us to make the right choices now if we follow Him.
