As humans we find it so much easier to blame than to forgive. Our nature and emotions jump on a rampage and want to blame everyone or anything for our discomfort or dissatisfaction. And usually we are talking about just forgiving one person. I can’t even imagine what it would feel like to forgive an entire human race. This is probably why it is such a miracle! Because the human physical makeup is just not as open as the spiritual genetic makeup is to forgiveness. You know we celebrate our Easter as the event of resurrection and life, but the bottom line is our Easter is all about forgiveness. Just imagine if every practicing Christian or spiritual person would forgive one person this Easter Sunday morning—how uplifting and resurrected this world really would be! So rise like God’s miracle and forgive!
When my selfish ways come out.
When I forget the sacrifice of You and others.
Please forgive me.
When I forget the moments that are heaven here.
When I forget Your love comes through others.
Forgive me, Lord.
When I take for granted Jesus and his pain.
When I forget the Spirit.
When the hope I desire is not You in my heart but hope in something else.
When I let the darkness overtake my joy.
Please dear Lord, forgive me.
When I deny You.
When I turn from You.
When I forget who You are.

I hope you find it in your heart to forgive someone this week. And most of all if you have not forgiven yourself, start there. True healing really happens when we start within.
Thank you for being with me this week. I pray for blessings upon you and your family at such an amazing season!
Happy Easter! Thank you God!
