How often do we hold grudges for the many hurts in our lives each day? There is another way to walk through life: Forgiving.
Forgiveness is life changing it frees us from a prison of annoyance, bitterness, and even hate.
Let me share these lyrics I read on Forgiveness
It’s the hardest thing to give away
And the last thing on your mind today
It always goes to those who don’t deserve
It’s the opposite of how you feel
When the pain they caused is just too real
Takes everything you have to say the word
It’s always angers own worst enemy
Even when the jury and the judge
Say you’ve got a right to hold a grudge
It’s the whisper in your ear saying, “set it free”
Lord, show me how to love the unlovable
Teach me how to reach the unreachable
Help me now to do the impossible
It can clear the bitterness away
It can even set a prisoner free
There is no end to what its power can do
So, let it go and be amazed
By what you see through eyes of Grace
The prisoner that it really frees is you
Matthew 6:14-15 NIV
For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.
Ephesians 4: 32 NIV
Be kind and Compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God Forgave you.
