Ann – A Friend of Jesus 2013

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. ~ Romans 8:28 ~

Forgiveness Brings…

Matthew 18:21-22 – Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times? 22 Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.

Hello friends (smile) I’ve been walking through stuff! No worries, all is right in my world because I’m leaning on God and my faith to get me through this season. (smile)

Recently, I mentioned, the beauty of aha moments. (cheesy smile) Forgiveness. Seventy times seven.

The quote below speaks to me. It illustrates free will to choose how I react to walking through things and stuff; trials and tribulations; and my all time favorite, X, Y and Z situations. (wink and a smile) Attitude is key.

Forgiveness brings freedom to move on by faith that if The Lord says the same, I live to fight another day. Forgiveness brings more spiritual fruit. Forgiveness is about releasing every single thing and every X, Y and Z or fill in the blank _____________ to God by praying the solution by faith. To be honest, I’ve been praying like nobody’s business and the break through is coming, by faith.

Like most things, in life, forgiveness is a choice. I refuse to carry any thing or stuff, X, Y or Z in my head or making my heart heavy. The Word of God is so powerful that our choice to speak it, live it, want it and share it keeps us walking in the spirit and denying our flesh. Glory to God for maturity and spiritual fruit!

It always comes down to choosing a better attitude. I choose forgiveness because it helps with the woulda, coulda, shoulda thoughts. Forgiveness frees me from the replaying it over and over again. Thank you Lord for helping me let it go.

I decided to post my thoughts since it may help someone else walking though something similar. It’s helping me these days and I’m sleeping better! (smile) Praise The Lord.

Be blessed and smile, it helps keep a positive attitude so roll with it! (smile)

As always, your comments are welcome. (smile)

Ann, I love what you said about the fact that it is not what happens or what people do to us but how we react to things is what matters. May we continue to grow in the grace to love as God loves. A lovely post. Bless you! 🙂
