the truth about forgiveness day 4

Oops! i skipped yesterday : O 
i guess  i was too busy enjoying my weekend with Silas :)
So, i'll have to do two today!

Something you have to forgive someone else for.

I hate to say this, but i am a HORRIBLE forgiver.  I'm bad about holding grudges and when someone does me wrong it takes me a long time to get over it.  Especially if i've already had to forgive them for that same thing before...
Which is really really hypocritical because my Savior has forgiven me for every wrong, even the ones i do over and over again (1 John 1:9).
I can't say that there is one person that i need to forgive.  Every time i feel an old anger rising up i have to pray and forgive that person again.  For me it's not a one time deal, forgive, and i'm done.  I have to keep forgiving every time i think about it...


  1. I must agree that it is hard to forgive, but I think its admirable that you try. It might be hypocritical, but we aren't perfect only Jesus is. That's what I have to remind myself. Its wonderful to know that His forgiveness is always there as long as we ask for it.

    Take care beautiful friend!

  2. Thank you :)
    You're right! While we're supposed to strive to be like Jesus, we are still human, and will never reach His perfection!
    Thank you for all your sweet words :)

  3. I'm with you on this one, I'm not good with the forgiving and it never popping up again.there's one person in my life that I need to forgive and I do but then it all comes back again and I have to forgive them again but like you i'm trying and lately a lot harder than I ever have before.

  4. @Joanne: It's nice to know i'm not alone :) It's good to hear your working on it... never give up! "Unforgiveness is a poison you drink yourself."
