“Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.  And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.”

Colossians 3:13-14

Why do we struggle when this word pops up in our minds?

…our hearts harden on the idea of acceptance.

…we cleave and harbor bitterness, lose the essence of God’s love in us, and allow the enemy to take over our hearts.

Our human heart is so vulnerable that we overlook the essence and the significance of forgiveness in our lives.

…breaks barriers to receive inner peace that brings us joy and sets us free from the chains of anxiety and worries of life.

…opens our hearts to new possibilities where God may lead us next.

Why do we allow pain to linger just to bind us in misery? When God’s true love is always there ready to entangle us.

I could count the times when my life has been shredded into pieces by people around me throughout the years; deceived, betrayed, and abandoned.

I chose to live my life according to where God leads me. I chose to forgive. I chose to live free from bitterness and allow myself to be released from the barriers of attaining inner peace. I chose to accept and love others unconditionally.  For I know that God’s love and mercy will lead me to His kingdom.
