Today, I am pondering the subject of forgiveness.
I remember a time when I was in Iowa, and Ray, my fiance, went to domestic violence to see what was going on. In the confrontation, he was stabbed several times in the brain, and this changed my life that night. I stayed in the ICU in the can notl so I could see Ray when I could. On the third day, in my prayer, I told God I forgive Mario, who was the one who stabbed Ray. The Lord had shown me if I can not forgive him (Mario) and be able to sit across from him at the marriage supper of the lamb (Revelation 19:7-9). Maybe I won’t be there.
From that day on, I chose to walk in forgiveness. It can be challenging to do. Not to stay mad at something or someone did to me. I pray for the Lord to help me to be willing.
In the example prayer Jesus gave his disciples, there is a line in Matthew 6:12 that states, “And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.” The question is, how much forgiveness are you walking in?
