Be assured that when we truly repent and turn from our sinful ways that God forgives our wrongdoing and forgets about the awful things we have done.
As far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us.
Once you were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of your evil behaviour. But now He has reconciled you by Christ's physical body through death to present you Holy in His sight, without blemish and free from accusation - if you continue in your faith, established and firm, not moved from the hope held out in the gospel.
In the Book of Romans the eight chapter verse one says, there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ. This means that the guilt that looms over us when we have sinned has no place in our lives when we truly turn and ask for the Lord's forgiveness. Once we have repented, He cleanses and purifies our spirits and we get to start over...holy, pure and blameless in His sight.

No matter what, we must keep moving forward in God. Sin will come to discourage, people will disappoint us, and at times life will set itself against us, but we must never stop moving forward in our faith. When we expereince some sort of setback in life, which knocks us down or backward, we get up and take a step forward into the things of God.
"I press on towards the goal to win the prize of God calling me heavenward in Christ Jesus."
Here are a few small steps that can help us get moving forward if life has set us back a few steps or sin has taken us to places that we need to get out of.Pray
Turn toward God and repent from sin
Read and study the Bible
Meditate on His word
Memorise the Word
Picture the Word
Practice the Word
Fellowship with Christian friends
God is for us, not against us. His love endures forever and His faithfulness stretches to the sky. He will strengthen us when we are weak. We must trust Him.

How did we get off that path God had intended for our lives?
What is the way back to living with a life with the Lord Jesus Christ?
If you are travelling down a road heading towards our goal and we became uncertain as to which road to take and made the wrong choice, we would eventually end up lost. That's
what happens when we choose the path of sin in our lives we become lost.
"What do you think? If a man owns a hundred sheep, and one of them wanders away, will he not leave the ninety-nine on the hills and go to look for the one that wandered off? And if he finds it, I tell you the truth, he is happier about that one sheep than about the ninety-nine that did not wander off. In the same way your Father in heaven is not willing that any of these little ones should be lost."
When we become lost, God wants us to come back and join Him in the destination that He intended for our lives. It will be easier to meet Him if we turn away from the wrong way we are headed and turn back towards Him. If we continue in the wrong direction we will eventually leave our destination towards God far behind. make that decision today to turn back to God where He awaits you patiently to welcome you into His Kingdom.

Yet I hold this against you: You have forsaken your first love. Remember the height from which you have fallen! Repent and do the things you did at first. If you do not repent, I will come to you and remove your lamsptand from it's place.
There are many things to consider in this verse, but what caught my attention is the phrase, "remember the height from which you have fallen." When we commit our lives to the Lord and fall in love with Him, in His eyes we are in a high place. We do not have to strive to get there, we only have to love Him.
How do we love Him?
This verse indicates that we love Him less when He is less a part of our lives than He once was. Is the Lord more or less apart of your life today? When we fell in love with God He was included in everything in our lives. If you have fallen away, like many of us do, then make a decision today to put God first again. Ask for His forgiveness and He will meet with you in a special way.Try reading your Bible more, going for walks with just you and the Lord and spend time talking to Him. Let Jesus be a part of everything that you do, don't leave Him out of anything.
