To truly forgive a deliberate injustice...is hard as hell...but hell is just where we are going...if we don't. Now, we of ourselves cannot do this, but through Christ we can do all things. When was the last time you earnestly examined yourself? Inspired by a message brought by our evangelist, Sunday morning, I examined my self and found that I came short. The seed of unforgiveness still lurked within me regarding an incident that occurred five years ago. The evangelist led the congregation in prayer...I thank God for that prayer for I thought such feelings had long been vanquished.
FORGIVENESS IS.....


F oraging thru the hidden gnarls of  animosity & resentment, it's

O pening bitter doors that creak & groan with stubborn resistance, it's

R eaching ever so deeply into the soul's abyss and

G iving consent for the filth to be cleansed by Calvary's Power, its

I nsistently pressing toward the shining 'prize' of God's light, which

V entilates, thru the Blood, the putridness of hate & leads us to 

E arnestly foster the pardoning of others, it's

N ever denying the task alone would be impossible, it's

E mbellishing His Love's presence and

S avouring the sweet, refreshing waters of 'release', while

S aluting reverently, Our Forgiver & Our Enabler... Jesus Christ.

Another inspiration Joyce. To forgive is to forget, to never bring up the hurt again. I love your writings. May God bless you every day of your life.

So moving, Joyce! If we can not forgive, how can we expect to be forgiven? It does take soul searching and faith. Another inspiring and worthwhile piece! ~Hugs, Elizabeth

Some things not even God can bring Himself to forgive, we can't expect ourselves to be better than Him.
