What is an abomination to God? Are you an abomination, or is it just everyone else? Let's take a closer look and see what God is talking about.

WOW I don't know about you ladies, but that list is humbling. I am certain that all of us can see at least one area on that list wherein we struggle. Isn't that an interesting way to say it? "we struggle", "we fall short" We have so many ways to word it so that we don't sound as bad.

These are all SINS! All sin is an abomination to our Lord.


While we could possibly debate the severity of sins etc. IT IS AL SIN and God HATES it!!! Wherever you see yourself on this list, turn it over to our Lord. Cry out to Him for repentance, forgiveness and restoration.He promises that He WILL forgive you. Restore your fellowship if there is an area that you have been harboring. The Word is very clear that if we regard iniquity in our heart, the Lord WILL NOT hear us. To regard means that we are holding on to that area that we know to be sin.
Let us all focus on being pleasing to our Lord this week. Check yourself and recheck each day. It is so easy to slip.

Many blessings to you all.


In Him who cannot fail, Michelle
