“Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.” (Colossians 3:13)

We have all sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. Who would we be had we not been forgiven by God and left alone to suffer in our consequences?

God never turns His back on those that plead for His mercy and lay their burdens at His feet. His love covers hurt so that our pain is released unto Him. No longer a heavy burden but just a thought to remind you of how much you’ve grown while in the Father’s care. 

One sin is no greater than another for it’s all an act against the Father’s compassionate love for us. There is rejection of His righteousness but ability to overcome all the sadness that our painful circumstances can cause. 

Trust that God can make it all good. Tust that His love can bring light to your darkness and be the soothing comfort that brings peace. It is in that peace that you can grow and move forward with full confidence, knowing that you can overcome the difficulties in life. May you  find the means to advance and become the person that God meant for you to be.

Find your purpose as you forgive those that hurt you. Know your worth and allow God to show you what real love looks like and how free you can feel when you release all. You’ve carried this on your shoulders for so long so give in to His love and let go of your resentment and anger. They serve no purpose but to keep you from being close to God. 

Give in to love, forgive, and God will pour into you His peace and refreshing waters.
