Attitude of Gratitude

day 4: i am grateful for forgiveness.

i am truly grateful for the power of forgiveness.  not only to forgive others but also myself.  it's hard to forgive but we are commanded to.  when i allow myself to forgive others i feel a huge load lifted off my shoulders.  i feel as though i can breathe easier, life seems simpler and i am much happier.  now forgiving myself...that is still a daily challenge.  though when i finally do...i can let go and move forward.  without forgiveness you are at a stand still.  stuck in a time or place that brings you much pain and heartache.  this is not how we are to live.  we are to forgive all.

"For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins".  ~Matther 6:14-15

is there someone {or yourself}
 that you need to forgive today?
