Scars remind us of where we’ve been, they don’t have to dictate where we’re going.
~ Sergeant Harrison Scott, Criminal Minds~
Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times? Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.
~ Matthew 18:21-22 ~
Hello friends. (smile) Hope all is well and you’re keeping the faith. (wink) Stuff is my metaphor for scars and yesterday represents the past.
Stuff can be invisible and heard through words spoken. Stuff can be seen through actions.
No one is immune to stuff life brings. Stuff gives experience. Stuff eventually heals yesterday’s wounds. Stuff becomes a testimony.
Sharing stuff is the most powerful way to help others and so is forgiveness.
Stuff is experiencing and getting victory over yesterday’s unnecessary stress; dysfunctional relationships; toxic circus environments; object of bullies, manipulators and gossipers; identity theft; betrayal; failing health; or _______________(fill in the blank).
Forgiveness liberates today from yesterday’s stuff. Forgiveness stops the replay. Forgiveness shows the presence of the Holy Spirit within. Thank you Lord, for equipping, the ability to forgive as you forgive.
Faith to understand different, forgiveness shows Jesus, as Lord and Saviour, in any situation and glorifies God every time.
Abundant blessings, my friends because the just does everything by faith. Praise The Lord.
As always, I welcome your thoughts. (smile)
