There are many who walk around with "things" hanging around their necks like a 200 lb weight. Many do not realize how much wear and tear on the mind, body and soul this is. I myself had to come to realize that if I wanted to live the rest of my life in peace, I had to let go of the past. I had to realize that God provided a way for all of us to do this. Jesus walked this earth teaching men and women how to be better persons. How to live a life free of burden, free of guilt, free of pain. Imagine what Peter felt the night they took Jesus away. During their supper (Jesus and his disciples including Mary Magdelan) Jesus leaned over and told Peter Matthew 26:34 I tell you the truth, "this very night, before the rooster crows, you will disown me three times." Of course Peter thought and said no I won't. But he did. And guilt and shame haunted him until Jesus came back to visit them. He forgave Peter and he(Peter) was finally able to let go of all that he was feeling. Jesus is the light, he died for all of our sins. We have to let go and live the Godly life the best we can in honor of him.
