“Get back up.
Stop wasting time.
Stop dwelling on the past; that is the worst kind of idolatry.
Get back up in the presence of God. Shake it off and come back to Him.
He is your father.
He has made the way.
Come back to Him. Why? Because your guilt has been removed and your sins are forgiven and there is only One who is truly holy.
That is how it’s always been and that’s how it’s always going to be so you don’t have a lot of pressure there—to be holy—because there’s only One and there is no one like Him and His favor on your life and His willingness to use you is not dependant nor contingent on your perfectly flawless moral record.
