I hope that you have enjoyed my weekly devotional thus far and look forward to coming back each week. If you are just starting my devotional, then WELCOME! Feel free to go back to read the past weeks or continue on from here for a positive start to your week. Learn why I started these devotionals over on WEEK 1.
Each week will include a message, verse, question, and action to keep at the forefront of your mind and get you through the week on an uplifted note.
Forgiveness is necessary in order to heal and move forward from any circumstance in our life. With that said, it is also the most difficult thing to accept. Has there ever been a time where you forgave a friend that didn’t deserve it? Is there someone you have yet to forgive?
As human beings it is at times hard to soften our hearts and accept forgiveness from someone we may believe doesn’t deserve it. We may still be hurt by their actions, words or lack there of. Not only is it hard to accept forgiveness, it can be just as hard to ask for it from someone that may be upset with you.
It is to our benefit that God does not hold a grudge or retaliate in revenge but offers us His mercy and grace. God’s grace is so merciful and never ending. We never have to be afraid to ask Him for forgiveness because He will always grant it to us. His grace shows how much He loves you and His creation. He never hides from us and more than anything wants to be in our lives.
He wants to be there for his sons and daughters, no matter what we may have said or done. Healing and happiness will begin rushing in once we allow forgiveness to set in and begin to forgive those who may have hurt us.
Have a blessed Sunday and come back next Sunday for more of my devotional.
Verse: ‘For the Lord your God is gracious and merciful, and will not turn His face from you if you return to Him.”- 2 Chronicles 30:9 (NKJ)
Is there anyone I need to forgive? Is there anyone I need to ask for forgiveness?
Ask God to forgive you for all that you have done and for the courage to accept forgiveness from others.
