There is great power in forgiveness. Relief from the pain and suffering of being hurt is something we all need. It’s hard to forgive because it means having to let go of grudges and the things others have done to us. Pain is personal and it’s not easy to give grace to others sometimes. There is a saying that you can forgive but it’s hard to forget. Memory is powerful but forgiveness is more powerful.
To be truly happy you need love and forgiveness
No one is perfect. Everyone should be given a chance to change and to be forgiven of past mistakes. It’s called grace.
Even important people betray you but you still need and want them in your life….so there’s the rub. Grace and reconciliation are key.
Everyone should have the grace of redemption and the gift of forgiveness. A second chance done right can bring good things to our world. Lord have mercy on each of us.
I’m a flawed, imperfect person. I have no doubt that I’ve said and done things to hurt feelings. My heart and mouth can get the best of me. I ask for forgiveness and reconciliation to all. God loves me and everyone no matter what. I hope to do better.
I am grateful for the grace that has been given to me in abundance throughout my life. Lately its been demonstrated in a very big way. Grace is freely given, we don’t always deserve it, but when its there be grateful. Right now I am grateful for the ability to learn from mistakes in life I have made but because of the grace of others I can go on to live life anew. I do have to learn from it all though. Grace is truly amazing.
I think we all need more peace, joy and grace in our lives. Recognizing many are suffering so its hard to feel any peace, have any joy or experience grace in ones life. The chaos we are exposed to daily makes it hard to be positive when negative events surround us. Many want to hide from reality but its not the way to go though.
All we can do is keep our heads up and hope things will get better. Don’t let the drama of external things keep you from taking care of the important things internally. Work for peace in your lives, have some joy that can keep you going and experience the grace of forgiveness and mercy from a higher power or from others in your life.
I want to say that Christians screw up, say things we shouldn’t and hurt people we love and like. In short we make the same mistakes as non-believers. Yes good Christian people are imperfect just like anyone. No matter what you hear everyone is a hypocrite about something. I know fellow Christians who say four-letter words out of no better word to say, sheer frustration and being hurt. Just because I am a follower of Jesus doen’t mean giving up my human card. We all have to seek forgiveness for the things we do wrong right, believer or not.
If God forgives us we must forgive ourselves otherwise its like setting up ourselves as a higher tribunal than Him.
