Scriptures: Matthew 6:12-15 Mark 11:25
Communicating forgiveness to yourself and others is vital for you to be able to embrace your future. Prayerfully consider the following three points as you take this important journey.
- Let people into your life. If you need to ask for help to help you forgive yourself and other then look for it. A few years ago I had to get that help as I could not forgive myself for things that had taken place in my past. I thank God that I did, because it untied the invisible chains of guilt and shame and released me into my God given future.
- Write forgiveness letters. In the past I have prayerfully written a list of people that I need to forgive. The list was so long I was embarrassed!!! Try it and then take the list to God in prayer and give each person to him and ask him to help you release them from you heart. Remember forgiveness is between you and God!
- Ask for forgiveness from others. If you feel that you have wronged someone ask them to forgive you. It can help to resolve issues and free you in the process.
My prayer for you is that as you take each of these steps that you will truly experience the freedom self forgiveness and forgiving others brings.
