Colossians 3:13 New International Version (NIV)
13 Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you
In all your running around and buying for everyone in the office to every niece, nephew and new baby cousin. Have you considered giving yourself a gift that keeps on giving.
I’m talking about the gift of forgiveness. It’s the one gift that will make everyday feel like the best part of the holidays.
You know the old saying Forgive and Forget- well it’s impossible to forget but it is possible to forgive.
The grudge you are holding is only affecting you, even the hostage you are holding against your own past- (the decisions you have made)
Take a line from the movie “FROZEN”…LET IT GO!
Forgiveness isn’t for them, its for you
Having someone say they are sorry doesn’t change the circumstance; forgiveness does. That is the only thing that will make the time-consuming, mind draining, heart aching pain go away.
Don’t you deserve peace in your life? Unforgiveness robs you of that.
Stop right now and think of how you have let the actions of others affect your well being
It’s not worth it…they aren’t worth it, your past isn’t worth it. BUT you are worth it. This gift is free but takes some searching to find. Once you find it, snatch it up quick. Keep it somewhere safe and use it often. Forgiveness never runs out, it last forever but you must use it.
Give yourself the best gift of all; one money can’t buy.
