Forgiveness isn’t easy

but it is possible.

And I’m not sure there’s another doorway into freedom.

Go deep… really chew on God’s forgiveness of you. Stew on it. Marinate in it. Bask in it.

Then as you pray, ‘as we forgive others…’ park there for as long as you need to.  Return again and again as much as is necessary.  Cry out, “Lord, I do forgive, please help my unforgiveness”.  Don’t gloss over,or rush on. Don’t be discouraged by needing to re-forgive old wrongs. Burying things normally isn’t a good strategy if you want to bring life.

Forgiveness is one of the key characteristics the Lord is looking to develop in us, and He’s an expert in doing so.

It isn’t easy, but it is possible.
