Like many of you I love to chose a special word for the year. A word that might hold a special meaning for my life. I have had several in my mind but God has had a few in His too. Oh, He is persistent! I have struggled with Him because I didn't want to chose these words, not now, not yet. God knows best and I know that, so with much love in my heart I have chosen His words for my life.
Simple, yet meaningful and very necessary.
Forgive - an action word, something you do.
Forgiveness - an act, something that has been done.
I have struggled for many years with someone very close to me, and there are many bitter memories. I would love to see this situation healed. I have given forgiveness, I thought, obviously not because the wound still festers. This is why God kept putting these words on my heart. Thank You Lord.
My journey this year, with God's help and guidance is to act (forgive) and have closure (forgiveness).
