Psalm 103:10 this verse brings me such joy! It reminds me that He does not smite us just because we did something wrong one day. We don't have to live in constant fear and guilt and shame because of our sin-- we have been redeemed & HE LOVES US!
"But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect," ~ 1 Peter 3:15 http://www.biblestudytools.com/1-peter/3-15.html
