To The One Who Feels Ashamed and Condemned

To The One Who Feels Ashamed and Condemned

There came a time when I silenced God’s voice. When I stepped out of His will and followed my own desires. It began as discontentment, progressed to lying and secrets, and finally ended in depression.  Sin is like that, only showing you the pleasure, never revealing the consequence and pain.
