Choosing to forgive is hard, but the truth is it's good (and biblical) to extend forgiveness to those who have hurt us. Even when those roots go so deep, especially if the hurt is from someone we love or close to us, or you feel has treated you unfairly.

When we release the offense into the hands of God, we can begin to make room for healing in our hearts.
Forgiving someone is making the decision to choose mercy and grace over bitterness and resentment. To love God is to cooperate with His grace. Luke 6:36 says,

Here are 3 things to remember when forgiving others is the last thing we want to do:

We have an enemy, but it’s not each other.

Truth proclaimed and lived out is a fiercely accurate weapon against evil.

Forgiveness doesn’t justify them, it frees YOU! good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. — Luke 6:27b–Luke 6:28

Giving grace helps me. It sets me free.

Today I will:

Speak with honor in the midst of being dishonored.

Speak with peace in the midst of being threatened.

Speak of good things in the midst of a bad situation.

Forgiveness releases an offense into the hands of God so that you can heal.

Lift up your hurt and honest feelings to the Lord through prayer, whether it’s written or verbal.

Love & blessings!
