Forgiveness Friday

Are you ready to forgive?

One of the greatest reasons why I extend forgiveness to the people around me is because I am honest about how flawed I am.

When I was younger, I would battle with the idea that I do so many things wrong. I always had a reason or logical explanation as to why I made a mistake or let someone down. I would never admit that I had messed up or did something wrong. For example:

“if the person driving in front of me would go faster, I wouldn’t be late”

“if you would just mature, I would be able to be honest with you”

If you make a mistake, no matter what the explanation is that follows, you must ask for forgiveness. The word of God is says to ask for forgiveness every day.

We serve a God who wants us to come to Him with our troubles and our problem so that He can exchange our issues with His provision and grace.

If we do not learn how to acknowledge our wrong doings, then we are saying that there is no need for a savior. Everyone makes mistakes, its time we learn to turn those mistakes over to the only one who can fix them. God.

Forgiveness Friday

Forgiveness is not saying you accept the person who wronged you. Instead, forgiveness is choosing to accept what happened as it happened rather than what could or should have happened. (psychology.com)

There are things that we can control in life, but a person’s personality is not one of them. If you are on this planet then there has been some instance where you did not get what you deserved, been lied to or worse.

I am here to tell you that holding on to the unforgiveness is punishing you and not the person who wronged you. Its time to understand what has happened and choose to forgive yourself and forgive the one who wronged you.

You are not able to change what has happened, but you can change the burden it carries.

Forgiveness Prayer:

Heavenly Father, I forgive anyone who has ever wronged me or hurt me
or cursed me or lied to me or prayed witchcraft prayers over me and I
bless them in the Name of Jesus Christ. Heavenly Father I ask You to
forgive me for any unforgiveness, any bitterness, any anger, any strife,
any animosity, and any resentment that I have in my heart toward anyone
at this time, in Jesus Name I pray. Amen.

Forgiveness Friday

As we journey into 2019 we must acknowledge the past highs and lows of 2018.

It’s time to say Bon voyage to past mistakes, relationships, and failures. It’s 2019 and the first person we will forgive this year is ourselves! While society tells us to throw away the negative things I say welcome them. Use them as a building block to say either ” I will not do that again” or ” I will not be that again.” Do not leave the unsettled attributes of a past year around for the dog to pick up and bring to you later. Sweep up the smiles, tears, laughs, and pain and put them up appropriately. You deserve to be forgiven, choose today to forgive yourself for last year! SLiM

Ok, guys its that time again. It’s time to learn the power of forgiveness!

What is there to gain by learning how to forgive? Here are some benefits of forgivenesss:

  • Healthier relationships.
  • Improved mental health.
  • Less anxiety, stress, and hostility.

When you are able to move past a mistake someone has made against you, you then open a new door that is elevated past the experience and welcomes you into a world of development and maturity. You are now saying to the world that you can not be held captive to past pains and circumstance.

This New Freedom exudes love not only in your work relationships, or school, but in your personal relationships as well. You no longer have to be stressed by things that happened to you or feel hostile about the things that happened around you. You now become a person who holds the key to every door you wish to walk through. Instead of feeling like you’re being dragged through every door that life throws at you.

Remember. Forgiveness equals freedom. Stop by next week and learn the steps of forgiveness.
