"You're eating yourself up with guilt and worry, Carolyn, and it's got to stop."
She stopped and jabbed the stick into the moist sand.
"Write down every sin you've committed right here in the sand. Let it all out."
She walked up the beach onto the dry sand, spread the blanket, and sat.
"Take your time!" she called out.
She lay back, arms beneath her head, and crossed her ankles.
She tossed the stick into the surf and watched it carried out.
"I listen to the sea and hear the Lord, Carolyn.
Jesus said He came to save us, not condemn us.
He took our sins upon Himself.
He paid the price to set you free.
God is like those waves, honey.
He washes away your sins."
~Francine Rivers, Her Daughter's Dream
So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.
