Let’s be honest. Our definition of forgiveness usually means “I’m good as long as I don’t see them.” 😅
Some of our relationships aren’t forgiven, they’re just out of sight.
Hatred is premeditated. It follows the logic of “next time I see them I’m going to _____”. If you’ve already decided what you would do to get them back if you saw them again, their offense still controls you.
Before the New Year, let’s normalize taking back all peace from those who have robbed us, dead or living.
“…. Let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us.” Hebrews 12:1 NLT
