Forgiveness

Standard

     The Bible speaks to us over and over about forgiveness. It also gives us numerous examples of forgiveness in action.When we open our hearts to forgive,  the more grace is given to us.
     Not only am I called to forgive others, but I also have to forgive myself. As much as I like to think I am, I’m not perfect.  Sometimes I jump the gun and when I think I’m right, I hold onto my rightness with a tight grip. It doesn’t take much to forgive, just a little bit of taking down pride and ego.
     Yesterday someone that I had started to care about did just that. I had tried a few times to let him know my plans and that I usually don’t give people second chances. He apologized to me. He told me that he admires how I stick to my guns.  Now I know it took a lot. He told me how he felt and he can’t wait to see me again.  I’m excited to see him too. So we shall see how God continues to lead.
     Today I am attending a women’s conference at church.  I always love gathering to grow in the word. It looks like it is going to be a jam packed day filled with fun and faith.
       I hope that you have a blessed day!
Shalom

Dear God, Help Me To Be More Like You

Standard

     So, I got a bit of a reality check today. Basically I like people who like me and I hate people who hate me. Yes, I know its not the best attitude to have. Even though I do pray for my enemies, I have to ask God to give me the strength to forgive them. How can I be mad at someone for rubbing me the wrong way, when I rub people the wrong way all of the time? 

     This(along with my yummy dinner thanks wheat belly) are really weighing heavily on me tonight. Yeah, I can’t really show people God’s love when I am being a total jerk. Even though I think that the world works better when I am nice to people who are nice to me, this sadly is not quite reality. Its just me enjoying my unicorn. So tonight I’m praying hard for my enemies and myself. I am no better than anyone else(no matter how special I think I am). So I am thankful for old and new friends who can tell me the truth about myself. 

Shalom and blessings

30 Days Of Truth(4)Something You Have To Forgive Someone For

Standard

Wow! This is a huge one for me. So I will keep it easy and say I have forgiven my exes for being just who they are. Forgiveness only helps us move forward. So the sooner I forgave them, the sooner I became free to walk in my own light. The journey is long and can only be taken with as little baggage as possible. I think forgiveness helps both parties.

30 Days Of Truth(3)Something You Have To Forgive Yourself For

Standard

Forgiveness: easy word, hard to do.

Sometimes the hardest thing to do is to forgive yourself. Sometimes I do and then I take it back and have to do it all over again.

I have to forgive myself for chasing after losers and just stop. I think I’m doing a better job of it. I am worthy of a good man and the more that I believe it, the more that it will be likely to happen 🙂

I have to forgive myself for not being perfect. Oh how I wish I were. But I’m not. I’m just human. So the easier that I am on myself(on some things), the easier it is to get through them.

What can you forgive yourself for today?
