Many of us are givers by nature. We are at our best when we are giving unto others. We even feel more fulfilled to give than to receive. As I grew older I noticed that one reason why I felt more fulfilled when I gave was because I didn’t feel worthy enough to receive. I felt that if I gave then I didn’t expect anyone to give me anything and if I didn’t expect it I couldn’t be crushed by disappointment or rejection.
Due to this perception I found myself making bad choices, doing things for all the wrong reasons and not loving myself.
But then I discovered God’s forgiveness. When I finally forgave myself for my past and for my failed marriage I was set free. I found my joy and strength.
i had to forgive myself for my part in all the hurt that I endured for years. Forgiveness healed my broken heart and crushed spirit. Forgiveness is a powerful thing. Forgiveness will heal you physically and mentally, it will add years to your life and it will allow you to grow and transform into the best you you can be.
I encourage you today to forgive others and yourself. Know that your past served a purpose and that all things work together for the good of those who love the Lord. Walk in forgiveness and be free.
Forgiveness is the road that leads you to total freedom. You can’t even imagine the heights you will soar once you put down those bags of hurt. Fly free into your destiny.
Forgive, live, love and walk in peace.
