Luke 23:34a - "And Jesus said, Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing." The Lord was able to ask the Father to forgive those who crucified and mocked Him when He was dying on the cross, because to Him those ppl didn't know what they were doing. This is our Lord. In the whole universe, only He has the right to be offended, and we don't. If He's not offended, why should we? #forgivingothers #Godforgives #donotbeoffended #Hediedforall

Ouch.
Pain. Hurt. Betrayal. Disbelief.
These are some of the words that come to mind after another human being has wronged you.
How do you react? What do you do?
If you're like me, then most of the time you respond first in a defensive manner and then resort to seeking revenge.

You have a right to be upset. But let me ask you this: When all that anger and rage and frustration runs out, what will you do? - (Jesus says, you must forgive)
Forgiving others is hard. I never bought into that whole "forgive and forget" mantra. I struggle with my own inability to let go of the past and default to holding grudges. But what I've found is all the energy put into hating someone for one simple act of wrong is wasted. By focusing on the pain, hurt, betrayal, and disbelief you are only living In the past, and that will lead to a life that is dark and hopeless.
In order to move forward in life forgiveness is key. Forgiveness of others is seeing past their mistakes and viewing them as an imperfect creation of God. Look past what the Devil wants you to see, hate their sin not the sinner. You don't have to forgive and forget the action that was done to you, but forgive the person who made a mistake in committing it.
Ephesians 4:32 says, "forgive each other, just as in Christ forgave you" by forgiving us first, Christ equipped us with the power of forgiving others.
In addition, Matthew 6:14-15 reminds us that "if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your Heavenly Father will also forgive you." Ultimately forgiveness is meant to strengthen you and give you power over your life. Forgiveness was designed by God so that we would need Jesus. Forgiveness comes from the Son, in Him you will find answers and peace. By emulating Him you will see positive changes in current and broken relationships and will be enabled to forgive others because He first forgave you.

I shared something on Facebook a year ago, about forgiving others and I feel like sharing it with all of you.
It was about Radical Forgiveness and how we should forgive others, just like Christ has forgiven us.
I haven't truly been faithful to this, but also I talked about how the Lord convicted me to forgive and renew our friendship with someone, even though she forgave me, I couldn't except it. The same event from a year ago, happen again and I feel that ny love for her overcame our friendship and broke it, and now I feel I have lost the friendship, because of love and I have a hard time excepting forgiveness, even though she wants to stay friends. Now I just feel like I do not know what to do except the forgiveness and stay friends, or just break the friendship off. She is someone special to me, as I do not want to tag her or mention her, but I just do not know what to do now. Maybe forgive myself and forgive her, I do not know, but I just want to leave it here.
My Special Prayer is for All of us, especially me to learn how to Radically Forgive, like Christ forgave us, because when we Forgive others, just like Christ has forgiven us, we can see a Change in our lives and those around us. As well as learning to forgive ourselves too.
I hope you all have a Beautiful Weekend. You are All in my Heart, my Mind, and my Prayers. So God Bless Everyone with Love from the Bottom of My Heart. Amen! #Encouragement #RadicalForgiveness #ForgivingOthers #ForgivingOurselves

It takes a certain level of selflessness to be able to forgive someone who has wronged you. To be able to swallow the hurt and anger in your heart and have the strength to go the extra mile and forgive them. And mostly, to have the compassion to give them another chance. 
The Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) was beaten and humiliated, starved and persecuted, almost killed and driven out of his town by some of his own family members and tribe, and yet he didn’t think twice when it came to forgiving them and giving them a second chance. 
The beautiful thing about Islam is that no deed done for the pleasure of Allah ever goes unrewarded. The one who is patient is promised a reward beyond measure. And the one who forgives others increases their own chances of being forgiven their sins by Allah. 
Allah says in the Qur’an: “Let them pardon and overlook. Would you not love for Allah to forgive you? Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.” [Qur’an; 24:22]

Today's #donotfear verse is found in Psalm 130, which is titled My Soul Waits for the Lord. "Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord! O Lord, hear my voice! Let your ears be attentive to the voice of my pleas for mercy! If you, O Lord, should mark iniquities, O Lord, who could stand? But with you there is forgiveness, that you may be feared. I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in his word I hope; my soul waits for the Lord..." (Psalm 139:1-6a, ESV).

On busy mornings like these I am grateful that I am able to glean from other quiet times to supplement the few minutes I get today. That's why every morning my mom taught me growing up to start my day with Jesus. Some days I get a few minutes and other days I get few hours. When I wrote "Forgiving Others, Forgiving Me" I spent 10 years, 4 revisions, and 2 publishers to share what God put on my heart as well as allowing me to live...so when I see that today's verse on fear is centered on the hope of forgiveness my ❤️ swells! These are my favorite two quotes from my book that I hope brighten your day. There is no stain of sin that cannot be cleansed and made beautiful by a loving Savior.

"Sometimes God uses sin to force us to start over."

"FORGIVENESS IS NOT THE END OF YOUR STORY."

Talking to my big sis tonight made me remind myself, I just want to die empty. I want the absolute last thing on life's agenda to be my heavenly crowning ceremony.

Tonight is the last night of the Heart Pulling series on forgiveness. There will also be a very special announcement at the end of the call. It may or may not include, "Lights, camera, ACTION!" I hope you can join us. Please share this with others who are struggling in this area or who want to find ways to encourage those who are. Thank you!

🙏🏻Grace & Mercy ... are mysteriously thing yet we are extended that every day from our Father. How can we be so blind?? He does this although we don't deserve it, he loves us and forgives us and expects us to turn from sin, from hatred, from bitterness, and contempt. He expects us to extend the same grace & mercy he extends to us because no human is perfect. We all need it, and I am so thankful my Father loved me enough to not leave me where I was & gave me enough grace and mercy to rise above and move forward! Thank you Lord!!! He said, "Sondra, I love you too much to leave you here. I have great plans, let's move forward". ~God. He forgave me, gave me grace and mercy although undeserving, and loved me enough to lead me forward. *

"Forgiving yourself is as important as forgiving others. Guilt is toxic, reliving the mistake over and over. Love yourself. Forgive yourself."
