My Struggle with Guilt

My Struggle with Guilt

I recently attended a women’s retreat at my church where the topic was Joy.  More specifically, it was about having joy in the Lord.  One of the things that robs believers of joy is guilt.  I began thinking about my own struggle with guilt. Experiencing guilt isn’t always bad, but how do I know when guilt is from the Lord or from Satan?  How do I discern guilt that is the Holy Spirit convicting me to confess and repent, and when Satan is heaping shame on me?
