I can be hopeful today because I have been forgiven much; as a consequence, I am able to extend that forgiveness to others. Notice that I said I am able to forgive those who hurt me – I did not say that this necessarily was easy or immediate. Sometimes, it’s a process.

I’ve learned that when I keep the channels the forgiveness open, I tend to be in better alignment with the Lord. When I hold onto things and let resentment built up in my heart and mind, then a misalignment begins to form in my relationship with God. And I don’t want that.

What about you?

      1. I know what you mean my friend. It has to grieve His heart watching lots of things that I do, not only to myself but in lots of situations. He says though when I am weak, He is strong. And I know He uses those weaknesses to teach me, and make me into the person He wants me to be :):)
