Forgiveness frees our hearts to care, to breathe, to relax and to make mistakes.
Jesus tells us to forgive those who hurt us - this includes ourselves. Will you give yourself the gift of forgiveness? You may need to start with yourself, then move on to your spouse, your parents, your children and your church.
The very choice to forgive (and you may have to make it numerous times pe...r day) brings with it the heart-sensation of standing on a mountain top, feeling a fresh breeze on your face, and realizing you can see for forever...
"Make a clean break with all cutting, backbiting, profane talk. Be gentle with one another, sensitive. Forgive one another as quickly and thoroughly as God in Christ forgave you." Eph 4:31-32
