Forgiveness

I dreamed our phone was ringing but each time I answered it continued to ring until I realized it wasn’t a dream. I would soon wish that it were.

The call was about the passing of a loved and cherished family member and completely unexpected.

In the days and weeks that followed I struggled to understand why. And while I didn’t understand why this happened to our family I knew deep within me I needed to extend forgiveness to the one responsible.

As I read this passage this verse is nestled in Holy Spirit reminded me of this life event so many years ago.

Forgiveness can often be a hard act of kindness to offer toward the person(s) who have hurt or betrayed us.

But not forgiving has many spiritual and physical ramifications.

I think about Jesus who died a horrific death because of my sins and yet He still forgives me.

If you are having a hard time forgiving someone please take a first step and ask Holy Spirit to help you. You’re not betraying yourself by letting go and asking for help. It’s quite the opposite. He’ll set you free.
