Forgiveness

I don’t have a whole lot to say today…

We had our office THANKSGIVING LUNCH today! It was awesome. I took Jude! 🙂  And Broccoli Casserole! Jude had a hard day. LOL! The chairs were the fold up ones and he was too light for it.. He fell through with a full cup of tea.. Poor thing.. Then fell two more times.. He derfinitely got my “grace”…. LOL! The food was delicious! We had a good time!

There is a song that I just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!!!  It’s by Matthew West, called FORGIVENESS….  This subject can be a sore spot with me. It’s so easy to want to hold on to your hurts, regrets, and all the crap other people have done to you.  But really, by not forgiving, you aren’t hurting the other people.  You’re hurting yourself. It will eat you up like a cancer! Trust me.. I KNOW! This song is just awesome… I’m going to post the lyrics, then the video… 🙂  Listen to it!

“Forgiveness”

It’s the hardest thing to give away
And the last thing on your mind today
It always goes to those that don’t deserveIt’s the opposite of how you feel
When the pain they caused is just too real
It takes everything you have just to say the word…Forgiveness
ForgivenessIt flies in the face of all your pride
It moves away the mad inside
It’s always anger’s own worst enemy
Even when the jury and the judge
Say you gotta right to hold a grudge
It’s the whisper in your ear saying ‘Set It Free’Forgiveness, Forgiveness
Forgiveness, ForgivenessShow me how to love the unlovable
Show me how to reach the unreachable
Help me now to do the impossible

Forgiveness, Forgiveness

Help me now to do the impossible
Forgiveness

It’ll clear the bitterness away
It can even set a prisoner free
There is no end to what it’s power can do
So, let it go and be amazed
By what you see through eyes of grace
The prisoner that it really frees is you

Forgiveness, Forgiveness
Forgiveness, Forgiveness

Show me how to love the unlovable
Show me how to reach the unreachable
Help me now to do the impossible
Forgiveness

I want to finally set it free
So show me how to see what Your mercy sees
Help me now to give what You gave to me
Forgiveness, Forgiveness

 The Words in Bold is how I feel most of the time.  I concentrate on what others have done TO ME that has hurt me, then decided they just don’t deserve to  be forgiven… In reality, I am just as bad…. I am a sinner. But Christ has forgiven me. Who am I to decide THEY are unworthy of forgiveness?  It’s a conscious decision. One I have to make every day… One I DON’T always make EVERY DAY.  I forgive, take it back. Forgive, take it back.  What would we do if Jesus forgave us, then decided to take it back when we hurt Him? EEEEEEK! I definitely don’t want to think about that!  The Bible ACTUALLY says we MUST forgive those who have hurt us, or he won’t forgive us… Ummmm, HELLO!!!!! That’s a scary thought!  Just for reference it’s Matthew 6:15 
But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.
So.. No matter how badly someone has hurt you.. No matter how hurt you are inside AND out… It’s not too much that you can’t forgive. Because you can.  But you can’t do it on your own. You have to ask Jesus to help you. DAILY. That’s what I am going to do. Anytime anything happens.. Anything Satan tries to remind you of it, rebuke him, and forgive.. Rebuke, forgive.. A trillion times if you have to. The good thing is, it keeps you in prayer.. Which is what We’re supposed to do anyways. 🙂
Okay… Enough of my rambling.. Here’s the video…
if this link doesn’t work.. Just YOUTUBE it.. For some reason it’s acting weird!
ENJOY! And remember…. FORGIVE someone today!  Set yourself free from the chains that Satan would LOVE to keep  you in….

  1. GREAT post. I was actually talking about forgiveness and what it means/doesn’t mean with someone today. For me, many years ago, it was a life changing moment when I grasped the concept that forgiveness was NOT saying what they did was ok…or that it meant it was ok if they did it again. It wasn’t forgetting w/o wisdom…and God is still a God of boundaries. Suddenly the decision to forgive became a concept that was much easier to grab a hold of….and I was able to walk in that freedom. ♥

  2. Thank you so much. Kinda creepily timely for me to read this TODAY. I’ve been really struggling with the back and forth forgiveness with a “difficult” family member. I forgive, and then she re-offends and I’m back in the angry grudge mode. I’ve been anguishing over Thanksgiving, possibly having to break bread at the same table,etc., We have not spoke in over a year and the ripples affect our whole family, and that breaks my heart. So, I said all that to say thank you for being obedient to share, you weren’t rambling, God probably had you write this JUST for ME! haha, no seriously THANK YOU. 🙂

    • That’s the hardest part.. When they continue to reoffend.. :-/ Makes it VERY difficult to continue to choose to forgive.. I have the same problem.. Glad this helped you, Debbie! THank you for your comment!
