I Forgive Me!
I have been on vacation this past week and had some times to think about what this week blog post should be about. I began writing one night in my hotel room but my mind completely shifted and of course it was vacation so I wasn’t really as focused!
After returning home this Saturday night I picked up where I left off with writing but for some reason I could never complete my post. Sunday morning, bright and early, I was headed down the road and listening to “I forgive me” by James Fortune (check it out by the way if you haven’t already). I begin to think on the words to the song as it rained and my girls where quietly resting in the back seat. My mind drifted off into how we forgive others, and how the bible speaks on the way our God forgives us and throw them into the sea of forgiveness but it hit me that even after all of that we are still burden down because for some reason we can’t forgive the very person starring back at us when we look in the mirror.
I thought about the time where I was so anger with my father for not being in my life and how I felt things would be different if he had. I got to a point in my life where I was truly able to forgive him.
I thought about the time at 16 years old when a man decided he’d take from me what didn’t belongs to him (you catch my drift) and over the years I was able to forgive him.
I even thought about the wrong things I have done in my own life (nope! I’m not prefect either), and how God so easy forgive me and continue to love on me in spite of because I was his child.
I thought about the time where I was in a place where I couldn’t forgive myself.
I would think I forgave myself and try to move pass it but somehow those things resurfaced and I battled with my own forgiveness.
I listened to my pastor on numerous occasions making the statement the “Satan is the accuser of the brethren” but still didn’t click…. But, God makes things plain for us and now I understand.
What I’m saying here is no matter what you may do in life, what a person may do to you, you have to learn how to forgive and forgiveness states with you!!! You have to forgive yourself and move on!!!
· Read your bible
· Build a prayer life ( not depend on others prayers… been there)
· Ask for help! (I used to be afraid to ask for help but now I wouldn’t even hesitate)
· And forgive yourself as God has forgiving you!!!
· Remember it NO MORE!!!!
