Let’s Challenge Ourselves: Forgive

Let’s challenge ourselves today:

Let’s take out our calenders, phones, planners, or a scrap sheet of paper. Whatever it is that keeps us somewhat organized or on a schedule. On that planning device, let’s mark these words: FORGIVE.

Let’s schedule this activity as a weekly occurrence. Although, daily is the goal that we aspire to.

Let’s take a moment of silence and sit still.

Let us calm our busy souls.

Let the Father or let your conscience speak to you.

Let’s ask the hard questions:

What is on my heart?

What is this heaviness?

What is hidden, inconspicuous to me?

Reveal to me my offense(s) and the offense(s) placed upon.

Let us the feel the weight of the pain, and the debt that has been accrued.

After we have felt the pain and acknowledge the damaged done, as much as we can from our end of offense:

Let’s let it go!

Let the person go!

Let the people go!

Let yourself go!

Remove the debt because your debt has already paid!

Let us take every opportunity to free ourselves and others from the bondage of unforgiveness, bitterness, hate, envy, anger, murder, and death.

Let us remember this simple [and yet complex] thing:

” If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you withhold forgiveness from any, it is withheld ”

Friar Francis

  1. Profound and beautiful. It would do the world so much good if we let go or our resentments, hurts, pain and forgave one another. Ghandi said “an eye for an eye ends up making the whole world blind.” Forgiveness starts at home, in our hearts and minds. I love your post, it resonates very deeply with me. Thank you xx

    • Yeah, I agree with Ghandi and with you! There are too many gauged out eyes! Too many are walking aimlessly, because we are unwilling to release ourselves and others from the bondage of unforgiveness.

      Thank you for stopping by and sharing. I appreciate you and your thoughts.

      Peace and healing to you today!
