It’s my prayer that you received what you needed to fill your soul with goodness and you heard what God needed you to hear. Since forgiving is such an essential part of life, I have an experiment for you.
Ok, so I know you’re thinking what in the world does she want me to do?
Lent is coming up and instead of giving up chocolate or your favorite t.v. series, I want you to give up talking and/or thinking negativelyabout that one person who you need to forgive, you are trying to forgive but the hurt it still there or that person who for whatever reason you just don’t like. When the thoughts creep into your mind or you are just dying to talk about it…. I want you to pray for that person every time.
Part of the forgiving process requires us to pray for the person who hurt us. Yes, you read that right. You need to pray for that person.
Lent starts February 14th and will end on March 29th. This will give you a few days to pray about doing this and to prepare. Set reminders in your calendar. I will send out emails or text you myself (please ask me, seriously) but let’s do this! If you feel like you need support, find our group Facebook page. Let’s melt walls around our hearts and let’s watch what God does! I want you to add this to your story and I want to hear what God does for you & your person during this time.

Forgiveness is a hallmark of Christianity. Christ forgave those who nailed Him to a cross FOR OUR SINS! He asked His Father in Heaven to “forgive them for they no not what they do”. Carrying anger & hatred in our hearts hurts US, not THEM. That doesn’t mean we have to like it or them, but rather, we do need to love them because they are children of the Most High God as are we.
