Colossians 3:13 New International Version (NIV)Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.
My daughter was only a teenager and taught me this. You must forgive a person, but it doesn't mean you need to let that person back into your life. That statement alone has helped me help others too. You might thinking forgiving is connecting back to them, but no. Sometimes forgiving is forgiving and then letting it go. We never want to let someone back into our lives who was a bad influence or brought us down in anyway. The actions of someone else can totally affect us, but our own action affects us even more. Be the one who wants what God wants for you.
BE THE ONE ~
Allow God to help you through situations of life with a better attitude.
It was years ago when I was so broken and lost inside. I felt like hope was a million miles away. Nobody understood me because I was all locked up on the inside. I forgot that I knew God who had the master key that could unlock a new beginning. It was time to let go of what I could not change and change the things I could. I stand strong today in God and I know who I am in him. It took time my friends, it took time to change me from the inside out.
I am so glad God turned my life around to be able to share hope daily with you. I know that life can just hit us hard and life can give us great things too. There are days I have experienced but good and hard things. My choice in leaning to God and believing big has made my day so much better. Through it all, I have learned to trust in the Lord with all my heart!
How about you? Need some hope today and time to reset your mind? Go ahead take a minute to take a deep breath and surrender your will to God's will. That changes everything because we learn to pray, praise and reach out. God puts people into our lives to share life with in a good way. Be that example you always wanted in your life. Be the one who just trust the Lord and will purpose to press forward. Going back only gives us reruns of life and sometimes it's not good to watch that rerun of life. It's a new day with a new beginning! I'm excited to see what is ahead in this day for you and me.
I pray today for those who need health, finances, job, prayers answers now and all circumstances of life. Only God truly knows your heart, your desires and will help from the inside. My prayers do continue for you, your family and friends.
