Real forgiveness is taking place.

“The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” John 10:10

“I sought the Lord, and He heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.” Psalms 34:4

My youngest daughter, Faith, loves to ride her bike around the neighborhood. One day while going down a hill, she fell, and after that experience, every time we came to a hill of any kind, she refused to ride down. To help her with her fear, I took her to where she fell. I said, “Faith, bend down and feel the ground with your hands.” As she placed her hands on the concrete, I said, “Now say, I forgive you ground for hurting me, and I forgive you, Faith, for falling.” Well, it worked. The next time we came to a hill, she happily pointed her legs outward and rode down just as carefree as before.

Forgiveness is powerful, my sisters. It frees us. Sometimes we wonder why we feel stuck and unable to enjoy things we once enjoyed. It’s because unforgiveness can be in our hearts towards ourselves and others, and we don’t realize it. Until we are enjoying life again the same way as before, we have to ask ourselves if real forgiveness has taken place.

What have you chosen to no longer enjoy because you are afraid of getting hurt again? The enemy wants to steal your life away by causing you to hold on to past hurts. But your Father loves you too much to let that happen. His Holy Spirit is going to reveal areas you haven’t enjoyed because of unforgiveness, and you’re going to receive His help to forgive others and forgive yourself so you can truly live. He’s helping you release it and let it go.

Prayer: Father, the enemy wants to steal my life and things I enjoy because I’m holding on to hurts and choosing not to forgive. But thank you, Father. You deliver me from all my fears by helping me walk in forgiveness with myself and others. With your help, I forgive myself for falling, and I forgive every person who has ever hurt me. Thank you that I will live the abundant life you created me to live. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
