Prayer for a Divided World


Forgiveness is a powerful expression. When we forgive, we begin with a simple desire to overcome resentment. Choose to let go of ill will or bitterness. Forgiveness does not condone or overlook the behavior that initiated the problem. It does, however, unshackle the forgiver from negativity. It also keeps us from living our lives in blame. Let’s set ourselves free. No longer justify the rationale to hold another liable for our pain. Replace seemingly justified resentment with forgiveness. Open hearts for the full expression of peace and love. ~ DailyWord (paraphrased)
