"Enlarge the place of your tent, stretch your tent curtains wide, do not hold back; lengthen your cords, strengthen your stakes. For you will spread out to the right and to the left; your descendants will dispossess nations and settle in their desolate cities.
Do not be afraid; you will not suffer shame.
Do not fear disgrace; you will not be humiliated.
You will forget the shame of your youth and remember no more the reproach of your widowhood."
Understand that the redemption that God promises is not one in which one must continually wallow in grief over one's sins, or one in which one will be constantly reminded of one's former shame. For there are relationships - and many have experienced them - in which "forgiveness" is granted but not without constantly reminding the person of their past faults. That is not the kind of forgiveness that God offers. For it is written, "their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more." Heb 8:12 For God forgets our sins and so also "you will forget the shame of your youth." Thus "God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying." Rev 21:4
