Aug.24: Forgiveness is the greatest expression of love

Forgiveness

Want to scratch the surface for hope? Colossians 3:13- “bearing with one another, and forgiving each other, whoever has a complaint against anyone: just as the Lord forgave you, so also should you.”(NAS)

Have you ever thought you had forgiven someone for a past hurt only to have it rear it’s ugly head again? I have. During my college years I had a close friend break a confidence in public. Well I hung onto that hurt too long and all it did was rob my peace. It was my pride that got in the way until He convicted me and I finally let go and forgave. The enemy would like us to be in a constant role of worry, anger, self doubt, and frustration. Sometimes it takes a lot of sorting, lots of prayers, and time, but God forgives us when we confess with sincere hearts. Take it to Him in prayer and have a load lifted from your shoulders.

About bshiveofhope

I have worn different hats and travelled down many bunny trails in life- custodian, writer, florist, grandma, community nurse, mom, wife, Jesus Girl. With these vocations have come many stories and life experiences that I want to share with you. They're not all warm and fuzzy, and are sprinkled with humility, and sadness. That's life. We were made for community so let's build each other up with hope and encouragment.
