Good morning blog family -
I would like to ask if you could please pray for my family. Something happened over the summer that has caused some anger and resentment in my family. It has truly made my heart sad and I've been asking the Lord to fix it. Yesterday, I cried about it and resolved the fact that I can't fix it on my own.
I know that forgiveness is a very difficult thing to do, especially when "you" feel so wronged. I heard an awesome sermon yesterday on the way home from the doctors. It was one of those ones that you wished the person going through "it" could have heard because if you tried to repeat "it" to "them", you'd leave something out.
Well anyway, the Pastor was talking about how we carry around "stuff" from our past and when someone hurts us, we automatically return to that hurtful place and it's not necessarily about the current thing that has hurt us, but the memory or memories that we're still carrying around from those past wounds.
I use to be one of those people until Jesus found me sitting in my family room on a beautiful sunny day. He asked me to turn all those past hurts and burdens over to Him and I did. WOW - what an incredible feeling that was. It was like finally dropping a 20 pound bag of potatoes right there on the floor and never having to pick it up again. The freedom that it gave me is something I cannot put into words, because the feeling lives inside my heart.
Thank you and may the Lord continue to keep and bless you.
