I forgive and I am forgiven. I have peace of mind and heart.
Saying “I’m sorry” isn’t always easy. It often takes courage to be the first to make amends. However, the first step toward forgiveness is the first step toward peace of mind.
If I have wronged another or there is a perception of wrongdoing, I begin the healing process of forgiveness through prayer. I open to the healing power of God. Once admitting the need for action, I clear the way for healing, restoration and peace.
The Holy Spirit works within me and within the situation to establish harmony, soothe emotions, and assure wholeness. Through the power of God within, I give and receive forgiveness. I am at peace with myself and others. I am whole and free.
Bear with one another and … forgive each other.–Colossians 3:13
Dear Lord help us to do proper self reflection to see if there is a need in our lives to forgive or receive forgiveness from someone else. We ask You to make the way for us to do this work that is often difficult, but so very important to have peace and mend relationships. Thank You Lord for the power and grace to forgive others as You have forgiven us. Amen.
