If you have a good friend that will tell you when you have something in between your teeth and something wrong in you life, be very thankful.
Like today's Encouraging Word says, "As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend." -Proverbs 27:17
I have a friend that's helping me like that right now, walking me through forgiveness.
Brand new song from Tenth Avenue North called “Losing” about forgiveness…
“Why do we think that hate’s gonna change their heart
We’re up in arms over wars, don’t need to be fought
Pride won’t let us lay weapons on the ground
We build the bridges up, but just to build ‘em down.
As a someone who believes in complete grace and mercy from God…for myself…sometimes I forget it also applies to other people.
Maybe there’s someone in your life that you need to let off the hook. If you'd like you can share it here, just share their initials if you'd like. It's a start.
I was talking to my best friend about that yesterday, we were complaining a bit about what other people had done to us…
She said, she heard this saying that well it was so shocking…that it worked.
“Refusing to forgive is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die.” –Dr. Jim Dincalci
Like Tenth Avenue North said…
“Oh Father give me grace to forgive them cuz I feel like the one losin’”
Who could you extend grace to? And get freedom for yourself?
