Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer, and Reflection for 11.7.18

Scripture

“If you forgive those who sin against you, your heavenly Father will forgive you. But if you refuse to forgive others, your Father will not forgive your sins.

Matthew 6:14-15

Reflection

Carrying around the anger and resentment from what someone did to you will only make their issues your own. That is dead weight that you don’t need in your life. That is time you are wasting fixated on them, when if you really thought about it—they most likely are so far-removed from that situation that it is no longer of concern to them; some may not even remember the incident or simply don’t care.

If we say that God takes care of our battles, then why don’t we release these trespasses to Him and allow Him to handle our grievances?

We must let go and free ourselves from that darkness. We must forgive and move on. Honestly, can you expect something you’re not willing to give in return? Can you expect forgiveness from our Father although you’re still holding grudges, causing havoc, and seeking revenge upon one of His children? Let the healing begin starting today, by first forgiving those who hurt you.

It’s a new day and you are blessed to be reading this, to be living, breathing, blinking and thinking. Enjoy your day and your blessings.

Prayer

Father I pray for Your forgiveness. I have worked at freeing myself to forgive others who have sinned against me so that I no longer carry around the dead weight from a cold heart and closed mind. I know that I can’t ask for and expect forgiveness from You if I can’t find it in my heart to forgive Your children. In Your name I pray. Amen.

Love,

Natasha
