Forgiveness is Trust...
I can hear the Lord saying,
Lord: Do You Trust Me?
Me: Yes Lord!
Him: Then I need you to forgive them
Me: Them? All of them
Him: Yes, All of them
Me: But do you remember what "they" did, playing each offense in my head.
Him: Yes, Do you trust me?
Me: Yes, then I need you to forgive them.
Him: Forgiveness, says you Trust Me (see Romans 12: 17-21), it says you will not try to manage your hurts and disappointments on your own.
Me: (sigh) Abba Father, I trust you, so I will forgive them
Learning to forgive others because I trust God,
