Forgiveness

God has been teaching me about true forgiveness. I believe this is the start to healing, if not healing itself. I keep going back to the verse “By His stripes, we are healed”. He died for the sins of the world. He died for me. He died for anyone who wronged me. We have healing and Jesus paid the ultimate price for that.

This is what changed for me. Understanding the love of God at such a level that goes deeper and deeper daily it seems like.

He’s teaching me to forgive myself and others because how can He forgive me when I can’t do these things? They may not deserve it, I don’t either, but the love of God is worth it.

If I had a child who was hurting and struggling, I would want them to come to me. I would let them know that they have a safe place to go to each time when they feel confused and hurt. This is the same with God. He is a wonderful Father who wants to help His children. When my body and emotions are so confused, that’s when I reach out to my Father. He loves me no matter what and wants to help me with any issue I have.

When I started doing this, I felt so free. I received so much clarity and comfort just from running to my Father. I cry out in pain because I know only He can handle it. He provides the comfort I need that no one else can provide.

All I did was to go into the Word and seek Him above anything else. My life is changing because of this. He has taught me so much about forgiveness. To anyone who has wronged me, I honestly don’t care anymore because I have learned to love and see them the way God sees them. I love them all. Again, they may not deserve it but I don’t deserve God’s love either yet He still does each time and that will always be worth it to me.

Today’s challenge: forgive often, love daily, and bring it all to God. He’s a good Father who wants nothing but the best for His children.
