|Releasing May 3rd from Multnomah.|
I have felt dirty and unworthy of a clean slate with God ever since my experience, ever since that meeting with Mrs. H---, this feeling has plagued me for years.... The struggle that has lingered from my TM days is guilt.
--Anna (on Recovering Alumni)
Everybody’s felt that.
You feel dirty.
You feel unclean.
You feel unworthy.
You feel guilty.
And all the religious people in the world decide they agree with you.
That’s the part that hurts the most, maybe.
You are loved.
You are known.
And you aren't left helpless. Regardless of the hurts you've given or sustained, the mistakes you've made or the wounds you bear, whether you're allowed in or shut out, the Most High has not left you fatherless or barren. There is something you can do, no matter who you are or what responsibilities are yours. Where to begin? Paul gives us a hint in 1 Corinthians 13. And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; he says, but the greatest of these is love.
