WHEN I FORGIVE, I RELEASE THE PAST AND EMBODY THE PRESENT.
A closed heart cannot receive love and joy. A clenched fist cannot accept an outstretched hand. Today I give myself the gift of forgiveness, as I open my heart— myself—to living in love.
I can cling to hurtful experiences from the past or surrender them for a better life now. As I release attachment to a painful memory, I allow myself to replace pain with peace, hurt with joy.
Forgiving does not mean condoning hurtful actions. Forgiveness means releasing the pain and reclaiming my life. When I forgive, I am freed to move beyond the unchangeable past into a new experience of divine possibilities.
Bear with one another and, if anyone has a complaint against another, forgive each other; just as the Lord has forgiven you.—Colossians 3:13
