Before *Nelson Mandela* left prison he said, “as I stand before the door to my freedom, I realise that if I do not leave my pain, anger and bitterness behind me, I will still be in prison”.
Self imprisonment is worse than that imposed. How many of us have imprisoned ourselves inside the walls of hate, anger, bitterness, holding grudges, etc.
This too shall pass,
Forgiveness sets you free.
*Get out of your prison today.*
And stay blessed forever.
7/8/20, 7:46 AM – *Forgiveness*
It is monsoon time again & when we use our car, we use our car windshield wipers.
I will never forget this conversation I had with my son.
One rainy afternoon I was driving along one of the main streets of town, taking those extra precautions necessary when the roads are wet and slick.
Suddenly, my son, spoke up from his relaxed position in his seat. “Dad, I’m thinking of something.”
This announcement usually meant he had been pondering some fact for a while, and was now ready to expound all that his eight-year-old mind had discovered. I was eager to hear.
“What are you thinking?” I asked.
“The rain!” he began, “is like sin, and the windshield wipers are like God wiping our sins away.”
After the chill bumps raced up my arms I was able to respond.
“That’s really good, son.”
Then my curiosity broke in. How far would this little guy take
this revelation? So I asked, “Do you notice how the rain
keeps on coming? What does that tell you?”
He didn’t hesitate one moment with his answer:
“We keep on sinning, and God just keeps on forgiving us.”
What a profound thought & one which I will always remember whenever I turn my wipers on.
God teaches us, always forgive those who have sinned against you.
Forgiveness is pure happiness. Pure happiness is achieved because when you forgive a person who has done you harm, you detoxify yourself of all negative energy, free your mind and purify your soul and body.
As long as we don’t forgive people who hurt us, they occupy a rent free space in our mind.
This too shall pass,
Forgive and forget and stay blessed forever.
