Like a lot of people, I grew up with an image of God always frowning down on me when I was bad and just waiting for me to screw up when I wasn't. But the more I have learned about the concept of grace, the more I realize that He's not eternally ticked off. He simply wants more for and from me, just like a loving parent, a great coach or a wise mentor would.
This paradigm shift in thinking has freed me from having to carry guilt around - and watching the sky for lightning bolts. :-)
So if you are struggling with always trying to be perfect to please God, you can set that burden down. And if you need help with that, get into a church, associate with friends, read books and listen to resources that are all about grace, compassion, forgiveness, love, clean slates and fresh starts. You'll find that you - and He - are much happier.
