Guilt is not bad news

Guilt is not bad news
by Joel Howard

Contrition is a feeling of or expression of remorse. It is an expression of penitence. 
To be affected by guilt is not bad news.
Why? It is a sign - a seed of change. 
Guilt can be a good sign.
God dwells with the contrite. With those who are aware of our need. 
Blessed are the poor in spirit. 
Those in constant gratitude and awareness of our need for God's mercy. 
The quiet. The humble. The poor. The broken in spirit. 
He is near to the brokenhearted. He saves those who are crushed in spirit. 
He opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble. 
He teaches and leads the humble in what is right. 
He giveth more grace. 

Guilt? Ok
It's not bad news per se.
Give it to God. Live a life of contrition and penitence. 
Unpack your own negligence. 
God loves sinners who repent. 
God loves you, sinner! So repent!

This is good news! Be penitent. 
This is good news - take your guilt to him
