November...30 Days Of Thankfulness, Day Twenty- Nine

Day twenty-nine of #30daysofThankfulness:


Forgiveness is so hard to get and to give! Forgiveness is something that we all need and we all have trouble giving.

To me forgiveness is something God gave us so we should strive to give it to others. I feel like forgiveness is important. Forgiveness is something God has commanded for everyone. I have people in my life that I need to forgive, people that have wronged me in ways you can't even imagine but even though they have done AWFUL things, God has commanded me to forgive them.

Forgiveness is great! Forgiveness is something that we take for granted sometimes. We tend to forget that forgiveness is a gift, one that we all need! Forgiveness is something God helps us do, we can't go at it alone and if we try, we will fail. God helps us forgive the people who have done little things and the people who have done the biggest, worst things we could ever imagine. God helps us forgive, no matter what the person has done, He always helps us forgive.

Forgiveness is something I have struggled with for a long time. I have had a lot of trouble forgiving some people but I know that God is going to help me. He is going to help me forgive, I don't know when but I do know that I will someday be able to forgive these people...with God's help.

Someone once told me "you might forgive them tomorrow, you might forgive them next week or you might never forgive them". I think that that is wise but I also think that to some extent it is not true. Because if you ask God to help you with something and you truly want help with it, He will help you. He will give you the help that you need to forgive.

I believe that God is going to help me forgive the people who have wronged me, because I truly want to forgive them.

Not forgiving doesn't just hurt the people that you're not forgiving, it also hurts you. A lot of people think that it's just hurting the people they're not forgiving, but in reality the people they're not forgiving aren't really the ones that they are hurting.

God has given us the gift of forgiveness, so we need to give it to others! It may be one of the hardest things you've ever done but it is SO rewarding! SO worth it! SUCH an amazing feeling!

Thank you God for forgiving us. Please help us forgive others.

Let it be all for you, Lord. Here I am.

It's a scary thing to not know if you're dying from a terrible illness. It's a scary thing to look at life with the perspective ...
