“If you forgive those who sin against you, Your Heavenly Father, will forgive You, But if you refuse to forgive others, Your Father will not forgive Your sins…”
Pretty straight forward, right?!
Forgiveness is for our sake… It releases our hearts and hands the situation over to our Heavenly Father.
Forgiveness does not mean we have to restore a relationship… it just means you are tired of the pain, the endless thinking… You want to stop trying to make sense of something that we can’t control… You want to stop the anger and the feeling of helplessness that wants to take over your heart…
You want peace… :)
It is a heart attitude..
To let go of the pain and step into the light, is to stop letting yourself be a victim.. It puts you back in the light of living Your best life for God!
The life of love, hope and goodness you so deeply desire is in our control…
Forgiveness and healing is God’s specialty…
“Come now, let us reason together,” says the Lord. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool”
Let God’s mercy and forgiveness cover your wounded heart.. Let Him give you the strength to be better person..
Letting go of the past and living for today…
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for Your words that so pierce my heart with straight forward truth… You said we need to forgive, so You will forgive us, how I pray this truth in my life… I want to forgive. I want to live in the light of what is good and right and true. I so want to be free to live the abundant life You have to offer.. to be an example to my family, my children, my husband, my friends… of what living in You… Living in Love looks like.
I am not a victim.. I am a child of the Most High…
“Then I acknowledged my sin to You and did not cover up my iniquity. I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord” and You forgave the quilt of my sin..”
Please help me to look at how short life really is… Help me to not take for granted all the love and forgiveness You have so richly poured into my heart…
You forgave me, that I would be free…
“Blessed is he whose transgressions are forgiven, whose sins are covered. Blessed is the man whose sin the Lord does not count against him and in whose spirit is not deceit..”
Psalm 32: 1-2
You have made me beautiful in Your eyes, full of hope and how I want to exhibit that truth in my days…
Oh, Lord, how I pray I would be a light of love for others who are struggling with forgiveness. .Help me to take the focus off of myself; and Help me to draw others into Your presence that they too would be set free from the bondage and darkness of an unforgiving heart..
You are our justice… and we can trust in You…
In Jesus Name, I pray..
Live in Love,
“Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: ‘It is mine to avenge; I will repay,’ says the Lord.”
“..And forgive us our sins, just as we have forgiven those who have sinned against us..”
