Struggling with forgiving myself. Praying for all those who struggle with the burden of their past. Let's be kind to ourselves today. We are human, we are forgiven and we are loved.

Today is the 1st day of my “summit”, and this was a great verse for me. Been weighing on my mind to forgive ALL my foes, and those who have bad intentions for myself and family and pray for them, encourage them, and live a Christ filled life to be a shining beacon for a life in Jesus. God Bless brothers

Amen, guys. Forgiveness is to truly wish someone well - from your heart.

If you won’t forgive yourself brother, you have a standard higher than Gods.

Brene Brown gives a good insight in her book Rising Strong, where she asks tons of people "do you believe that others are generally doing their best?" A few weeks ago, I would have been on the "no" side, but one of her responders said "maybe not, but I find everything gets much easier when I assume they are." I came to a few very difficult truths, especially that I can't read a person's heart, and I'd be playing God if I assumed I could. Assuming the other person had the best intentions may not be the best way to handle it, but it's surely a better default than assuming the worst.

I pray that I can let it go but it's not that easy

Something that is a constant struggle. I don't want the Lord to forgive my trespasses as I forgive others...I would be in deep trouble.

DAY 134: A Time To Forgive

Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.  ~ Ephesians 4:32

It's hard keeping peace with people who get under your skin.  We  are plainly advised to forgive our brothers and sisters just as Christ forgave us.   

Find a way to forgive those who spin you out of control. Remember that forgiveness is about freeing you - not the person who wronged you.

Are you holding back forgiveness? It's time to let it go.
