Forgiving has nothing to do with to person I forgive. They don’t have to and won’t change. I just release myself to live without blaming, without needing them to be anything for me. It’s choosing to live in the present instead of blaming my present on my past. It’s a continual choice – not a one time decision. I choose to forgive in circumstance and events for the rest of my life. I choose forgiveness. I choose to take responsibility for my life. I choose not to blame. I choose to love without holding back. I choose to give grace. I choose not to use people as my enemy.
This morning I was reading Brennen Mannings book ‘Abba’s Child. This book is becoming a gentle poke when I’m wondering off trail. This morning was no different. 🙂
“The recovery of passion begins with the recovery of my true self as the beloved. If I find Christ I will find myself and if I find my true self I will find Him.”
