Get rid of the weight

I m not a poet, but I wrote this while I was blogging on this subject of Forgiveness.

A hard topic, but much needed in this world.

Apologizing or saying sorry is the hardest thing to do.

To seem vulnerable, and small is bravest thing I have to do.

To lay down my differences, and admit that I am wrong.

Takes the guts, humility and everything I own

But I lay down my life, to be trampled upon

For his love and his grace, covered me endlessly

On the cross, pass my humiliation, shame and condemnation

For a life of eternity.

Be kind when you want to be hurtful.

Speak love, when you want to spit hate.

Be merciful when you feel like cutting,

Treat your enemies with kindness and respect.

by yours truly

My friend,

Saying “Sorry” or admitting our mistakes may be the hardest thing we have to do, but it’s the very thing that hinders our spiritual growth, and development, it’s the very thing that blocks us from the blessing of God.

Easier said than done right?

I know its not easy, I have first hand faced these struggles, and I cannot sit here and tell you, that it’s going to be easy. IT’S NOT! It’s going to be the hardest thing you have to do!

But a MUST DO!

You are to let your guard down, and personally humble yourself. Jesus was all about humility and kindness. He extended his hand, to anyone that needed help. You are to get down from your high horse, and offer up a sacrifice of your ego. You are to personally, publically admit that you not perfect, and have weaknesses! Oh yes, it’s gut wrenching, I know, it’s unfamiliar and very hurtful, to your ego. But is it worth it? YES, every bit is worth it!

You CANNOT and WILL NOT go to the next level, until you face your struggles head on! Until you face those giants face on!

When you want to rise up, and go to the next level, bitterness, and hate will hold you back. The weight of anger, wpipl constantly pull you down.

Get rid of the weight!

When you cannot forgive you are carrying the weight of un-forgiveness on your shoulders.

What does unforgiveness feel like? It’s that bitter feeling you get that makes you want to avoid that person. It’s that gut wrenching feeling, you get every time you think about seeing, talking to them. It’s spot on wrong! In God’s eyes! It divides the body of Christ! Body cannot work in unity, the body cannot work to it’s full potential ! It cannot fullfill it’s mission, it cannot rise up to its full potential.

Unforgiveness is deadly, not only are you hurting yourself but you are hurting the entire body! Think about it!

If you are harboring unforgiveness in your heart, and you can’t find yourself to approach the issue, start with kindness. Be kind when you want to be unkind. Speak love, when you want to spit hate. Be merciful when you feel unmerciful, treat your enemies with respect. Our father is kind, and even when conflict arises, we have to choose to be kind. Choosing to be kind opens the doors to forgiveness, love and mercy. And aren’t you waiting for God to bless you? Aren’t you waiting for God to prosper you?

Rise up to your full potential by canceling the accusations of the enemy. Walk blamelessly before men, so that the father may reward you

Oh it’s such a hard topic, but it’s not talked about is it?

Start today! Choose to be kind!
