Forgiveness (As promised in todays previous blog)
I feel it right to mention what happened to me after I had the vision of a field and Father God wanting me to run into His arms. That night I went to bed and lay my head on the pillow, shut my eyes and began to pray. It was at this point that I began to see people that I needed to forgive come up. All the way back to my childhood, the bullies from school all the way up to the present day. As they came up I said out loud I forgive you! And the last person that I saw was myself, wow that was hard and I forgave myself. This was a powerful moment for me and I believe this has been part of the release that God gave me that evening.
Colossians 3:12-13 says ‘Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive.
Since then there have been times where the peace that God has given me could have been taken away. But I have been faced with a choice do I allow God or my circumstances to shape my response to life? So many times in the past I have allowed my circumstances shape my response. But with Gods help I want Him to shape my response.
