"Clear the Way"
Clear the Way!
Good morning! . Today's power scripture comes from Colossians 3:13 (NIV): “Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.”
Today’s message is short, sweet and to the point. You must forgive. Over the past few months God has placed this subject at the tip of my pen and on lips because it is so important. It is often not easy to forgive, but oh is it necessary. Will you feel better right away once you open the lines of communication and start the forgiveness process? Maybe so and maybe not. Some of us might have to let some time go by between the act of forgiveness and the release of feelings associated with the person we forgave. Others of us will start to experience a newness of life just from the throught of clearing the way for healing past hurts. Whether your forgiveness will require major surgery or just a simple bandage will for the most part be dependent on how open you are to total surrender in Christ. Even as Christ hung on the cross for our sins he first spoke of forgiveness. You show true power when you give others the chance to be shown the love of Jesus through the act of forgiveness. Holding grudges only holds you captive. Forgive, forget and move on in victorious freedom. God will be your vindication. You have a destiny to get to – do not let the chains of unforgiveness hold you back. Shake off old burdens that might try to linger. Don’t let the cares of worrying about what others did or did not do consume your energy or time. You are much too precious and God has much work for you to do. Be about your Father’s business. Forgive and push on.
Every day is a good day; it is up to us to make it a power-packed GREAT day! Be blessed! Dr. JoAnn
