Word Filled Wednesday


For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, 
your heavenly Father will also forgive you.  
Matthew 6:14

It is easy to hold a grudge.  It is easy to let the sins of others sit on our hearts.  But the Word tells us if we forgive others, then God will forgive us.  I know that I need His forgiveness, His grace, so how can I possibly not offer it to others?

Are you holding onto bitterness, anger, unforgiveness?  Release it today.  Let go of that anger and bitterness.  Offer grace and love.

Sweet Blessings~

  2. I've been asking the Lord to search my heart for any unforgiveness in me. Create in me a clean heart... - Wonderful reminder!

  3. It is so easy to hold onto anger, bitterness and rage... much harder to let it go, but I want to offer forgiveness and grace and love... just as He has given it so freely to me! Great word, blessings!

  4. God has been so gracious to me, how can I not extend grace to others? Especially when I've been forgiven of so much more. Wonderful post!

  6. Amen! It's not good to hold on to things of the past. This is something I have to daily remind myself of. Forgiveness is so hard sometimes, but it's best. :)

  7. I'm not sure if you remember but months ago I solicited advice from other moms to include in my eBook "Devotions for the First Few Days" I wound up using yours, and I completely forgot to let you know, sorry : ( I'm keeping my eBook free for only one more day, because It's now in print too. If you'd like an eCopy please e-mail me @ lessonsfromivy at gmail dot com.
    And feel free to let your networks know that your mama advice is featured in my book : )
