Saturated in Guilt

Guilt: Primarily a state of being at fault, often accompanied by a feeling of being in the wrong. Scripture affirms that human guilt arises from sin before God, and can only be purged through accepting the forgiveness offered through the death of Jesus Christ.
Through the death of Jesus Christ, God has provided a means of removing guilt, thus opening the way for believers to know the blessings of a right relationship with him.
Guilt is How we Feel About our Actions.

Guilt 284
In Fearfully and Wonderfully Made, Dr. Paul Brand and Philip Yancey write:
Amputees often experience some sensation of a phantom limb. Somewhere, locked in their brains, a memory lingers of the nonexistent hand or leg. Invisible toes curl, imaginary hands grasp things, a “leg” feels so sturdy a patient may try to stand on it.
For a few, the experience includes pain. Doctors watch helplessly, for the part of the body screaming for attention does not exist.
One such patient was my medical school administrator, Mr. Barwick, who had a serious and painful circulation problem in his leg but refused to allow the recommended amputation.
As the pain grew worse, Barwick grew bitter.
“I hate it! I hate it!” he would mutter about the leg. At last he relented and told the doctor, “I can’t stand it anymore. I’m through with that leg. Take it off.” Surgery was scheduled immediately.
Before the operation, however, Barwick asked the doctor, “What do you do with legs after they’re removed?”
“We may take a biopsy or explore them a bit, but afterwards we incinerate them,” the doctor replied.
Barwick proceeded with a bizarre request: “I would like you to preserve my leg in a pickling jar. I will install it on my mantle shelf. Then, as I sit in my armchair, I will taunt that leg,
Shame
An uncomfortable feeling of guilt and humiliation, usually arising from sin or failure.
Guilt and Has a way of making us Hide
Genesis 3:7 ESV
Then the eyes of both were opened, and they knew that they were naked. And they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves loincloths.
:
Genesis 3:8 ESV
And they heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God among the trees of the garden.
Genesis 3:9 ESV
But the Lord God called to the man and said to him, “Where are you?”
Because of their disobedience to what God had said, it caused them to flee from His presence
That’s exactly what the Devil does
No No No don't you pick up that Bible
No No No don't you go to church you hypocrite
That’s Called Condemnation Pushes us away from the presence of God.

*We experience 5 hours a week of guilty feelings. One study found that if you add up all the moments you spend feeling mildly or moderately guilty, it adds up to a pretty significant chunk of time.
*Constantly being Late
*Not Sticking With Diet
*Not spending enough time with your children
found 76% of working mothers feel guilty about not seeing enough of their children.
*Spending money on yourself
*Disappointing Spouse
*You could have stood by the bed side of a love one that was dying steped away for a moment and they slipped away now your stuck with that guilt
*Taking some me time
* Saying ‘no’!
*Avoiding certain people or situations because they trigger shame memories.
*Saying no to opportunities because you believe you don’t deserve them.
*Quickly clamming up or getting defensive.
*Rationalize or make excuses, even when no one’s challenging you.
5. When you play (and replay) the guilty act in your head, it kills your mood and energy levels — and takes you a good long while to reset.

7. This is especially important because while guilt can be useful in small doses...
*Unresolved guilt is like having a snooze alarm in your head that won't shut off. If you had a snooze alarm that never shut off it would be hard to concentrate, as your attention would be constantly hogged by bursts of guilty feelings. Indeed, it is not uncommon for guilt to persist over lengthy periods of time. Having unresolved guilt can have an extremely detrimental effect because...

*Guilty feelings make it difficult to think straight. When guilty feelings compete for your attention with the demands of work, school, and life in general, guilt usually wins. Studies have found that concentration, productivity, creativity, and efficiency are all significantly lower when you're feeling actively guilty. It’s not only that guilt makes it hard to function, but...
*Guilt makes us reluctant to enjoy life. Even mild guilt can make you hesitant to embrace the joys of life.
*Guilty feelings might make you choose to skip a party, not celebrate your birthday, or mope around during your vacation without being able to enjoy it. But for some people, guilt can do even worse damage:
*Guilt can make you self-punish. The Dobby Effect—a phenomenon named after the head-banging elf in the Harry Potter books—refers to a psychological tendency for people to employ self-punishment to ward off feelings of guilt.
13. Guilt trips make you feel guilty but also resentful. People who give guilt trips to others do so in order to control or manipulate their behavior, but they rarely consider the amount of resentment the guilt trip provokes in the other person. So while saying, “You never call me!” might get a person to call you in that moment, it will also make them less likely to want to call you in the future. This is why guilt trips are more harmful to relationships than most guilt-trippers realize. However, some people don’t need a guilt trip...

*Guilt-prone people assume they’ve harmed others when they haven’t. When your trigger for feeling guilty feelings is set too low, your guilt alarm goes off when it shouldn’t. As a result, you end up feeling guilty about impacting others adversely, when you actually haven’t. This is no minor issue; by over-interpreting people’s disapproval when it’s not there, you’re exposing yourself to constant and unnecessary stress and impacting your own quality of life. Indeed, guilt is a "burden" in more ways than we imagine...
Guilty feelings make you feel literally heavier and more belabored.Studies found that feeling guilty makes people assess their weight as being significantly heavier than it actually is, and physical activities as requiring significantly more effort, than non-guilty people do.

Now Joshua was standing before the angel, clothed with filthy garments.

Time does not cover sin
Sin Grows in the Dark
Bruce Narramore has described the two kinds of remorse: “Two people are chatting over coffee. Reaching for the sugar, one of them accidentally knocks his cup in the other’s lap. A typical guilt reaction would be, ‘How stupid of me. I should have known better. Look at the mess I’ve made. I’m sorry.’ The offender continues to berate himself and his misdeed. Constructive sorrow is very different. The offender might say, ‘I’m so sorry. Here are some napkins. I’ll get the table cleaned up.’ And later he might offer to pay the cleaning bill.”
Godly sorrow is constructive.

The Stripping Off

Jesus Bore Our Shame
All human beings are guilty in the sight of God, and all require forgiveness and expiation of their sin. Guilt can arise through failing to know what is right, through failing to do what is right and through giving in to temptation to do wrong
Through the death of Jesus Christ, God has provided a means of removing guilt, thus opening the way for believers to know the blessings of a right relationship with him.

I recall hearing a doctor say, “So long as a diseased appendix hurts there is hope for a safe removal. The danger period is when it stops hurting. It may mean the appendix has burst, spreading poison throughout the entire body.” So be glad that when you sin, your conscience still hurts and leads you toward repentance.
