"Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean; wash me, and I will be whiter than snow". Psalm 51:7

I love emails. So much so, that in the past I have saved them for extended periods of time which results in my email box reaching capacity. If I was to be compared to an animal I am likened to a squirrel who stores their food for the winter; I store everything that comes in the house, and, via email. Just the other day I sat down to send an email and all of the 2007 emails had disappeared from my inbox. It was something I had planned to do eventually, however, the computer did it for me.

Albeit, there was a sense of loss for what information might be needed, there was an instant feeling of utter relief that I was now rid of something I had to been holding to and was hesitant to let go.

In an instant over a 1,000 emails vanished, so it was when God forgave me of all my sins. A girl birthed with a sinful nature was again born white as snow and forgiven. God washed all my sins away; they vanished and are gone for all eternity!


1. Is there sin in your past that are you having difficulty accepting forgiveness for? Pray and ask Jesus to give you peace and assurance so that you can let it go.

2. Is there someone that has wronged you that you have not forgiven? Pray that you will see them through God's eyes and request the strength to move past the hurt.

3. Is there sin in your life that needs to be confessed? Spend some time in prayer today asking God to reveal any area of your life that needs to be confessed.

4. Spend some time praising God for His forgiveness and grace.


Lord, thank you for washing me as white as snow and making me new again.

Thank you so much, Caroline, for your very sweet comment on my blog. It means so much to know that there are more prayers going up on behalf of my friend, Debbie. The news has not changed, she continues in her sedated state, her brain too fragile to emerge at this time. Your continued prayers are coveted! Bless you for offering your love and support to one you do not know!
I love your newest blog entry. Don't we all hang on to meaningless things at times? I have my "inbox" to empty out in the coming days!
