Day 4

Today's Truth Topic: 
Day 04 → Something you have to forgive someone for.

Forgiveness... For the most part, forgiveness comes easily for me {with time}.  I've forgiven everyone that I can think of for things that have happened in the past.  But, what hangs me up {each and every time} is when that person {people} does the exact same thing that I've already forgiven them for.  THAT makes it harder for me to forgive them.  But, when you think about it, we do the same thing to God and yet, we expect forgiveness from Him.  We constantly repeat our sins, but He forgives us each and every time.  Right?

So, I guess while I forgive people for things in the past... I need to work on the repeat offenders. 

P.S.  One year ago today, we lost a great woman in our lives.  My Grammy fought a huge battle with cancer {multiple times} and went to Heaven one year ago today.  I know she's smiling down on us today {and everyday}.  Please pray for my family.  We all miss her, but I think it's hardest today for my aunt.  My aunt is the youngest child {of my grandmothers} and today is not only the day she lost her mother, but it's also her birthday.  If you could, say a little prayer for her.

Forgiveness is so messy. Even when I think about what it took for God to forgive us - that was messy. Jesus was broken and beat and bleeding. He was sticky with blood and sweat. Yes, forgiveness is messy. There are places in my life where forgiveness feels the same way and definitely doesn't come easy or without cost.

Remembering your Grandmother. I remember reading a year ago when you lost her. Thinking of you today friend and remembering your loss.

These are some great topics... I might have to snatch a couple or so this month for topics..

I am sorry for the loss of your family a year ago. I lost my grandma last winter, and am still grieving. I will pray for you and your family.
