Guilt

Guilt can weigh us down, and if we feel guilty, most of us automatically assume that we are guilty. But like every part of our human nature, our consciences are flawed and imperfect. Sometimes we will feel guilty when we aren’t. We hope that you find encouragement and endurance for your journey here.
