Forgiveness....


I chose to find God. And I experienced freedom like I never knew before. Spoken forgiveness, no matter how heartfelt, works best when we do not demand the response we want. Forgiveness brings freedom - freedom from being controlled by the past, freedom from the emotional ties to the offender. Forgiveness doesn't make the other person right, it makes you free. Forgiveness is the only way to break the cycle of blame and pain in a relationship. So choose to forgive someone today and release that burden. Love is an act of endless forgiveness. God forgave us with out any merit on our part, therefore we must forgive others.

  2. This is something I definitely needed to read today. We often find it so hard to forgive those that have hurt us, forgetting that God forgave us even when we didn't deserve it. Great post.
