Scripture for the day

Unfinished work..

The subject was brought up innocently enough and just like that, I was right back at a moment in my life when I was put through three days of the worst fear and anxiety I have ever experienced.

White, hot, searing anger was lurking in the folds of that memory.  I was sure I had forgiven the person responsible..but maybe I hadn’t.

Forgiveness is tough, complicated work. But if the job isn’t completed, we remain forever vulnerable to a passing thought or random recollection.  Clearly, I’ve still got work to do..and it starts today with earnest prayer and a request to be forgiven myself.

  1. I have had to forgive people who were the hardest to forgive, and it is a huge challenge to say the least, but in doing so, it has freed me. it is very. hard.

    • I couldn’t agree more. I actually thought I was done with this particular issue..that I had it all squared away in my head..clearly though, I haven’t resolved it all. 😕

  2. Sometimes it takes a long time to fully let go of something that has hurt us very deeply. At least, that’s been my personal experience. This is beautiful, thanks for sharing.

  4. This has also happened to me recently. I was talking about something and found myself saying things that indicated I still was carrying a lot of resentment around. I’ve momentarily forgotten what it was, even though it was only in the last 3 or 4 days that this came up. Short term memory problems are not fun. I will pray though and ask God to bring it to mind, because I clearly have more work to do in this area. It’s not pretty, but we have to rid ourselves of these hindrances to our communion with God. Thanks Cindy!

    • It’s the old forgive and forget thing..At my age the forget part is naturally occurring 😉I can’t take credit for that-haha..but every so often a memory pops up reminding me that the forgiving part wasn’t accomplished..and the forgetting part wasn’t permanent.
