Love and Forgiveness

Just because you’ve made mistakes doesn’t mean your mistakes get to make you. Take notice of your inner critic, forgive yourself and move on.
~ Unknown Author ~

And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the Lord: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.
~ Jeremiah 31:34~

And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing. Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails.
~ 1 Corinthians 13:3-8 (NKJV) ~

Hello friends. (smile) Love and forgiveness is needed to keep us from being stuck. Remember, things and stuff will be different for each of us. In life, we will make mistakes. In life, we will stumble. In life, we get hurt. Love and forgiveness heals.

Love ourself enough to forgive because God does. He does not withhold His love or remind us of our mistakes.

The past, to include challenges from yesterday should be forgiven.

The past does not define who we are today, unless we allow it.

Here’s the thing, sometimes, we make poor choices. Repent and forgive ourself. Those who love us will help us move forward because love never fails.

Love and forgiveness, with pure motives, is a beautiful thing to give and receive.

Love and forgiveness will trump angst.

Love and forgiveness helps us make better choices.

Love and forgiveness will renew the mind.

Love and forgiveness strengthens relationships.

Love and forgiveness frees us to live and enjoy life.

I have a few awesome friends that I am praying, by faith, are able to forgive and move forward with life because God and I care for them.

Love and forgiveness is a beautiful thing when we know that someone cares.

Blessings, my friends, as you enjoy your day! (smile)
