  1. I have often thought that it was too much for me… that God would ask me to be continually forgiving of the person who continually ‘sins’ against me…but now I see that is what I ask from Him, to forgive my sins continually. He will give me what I need to do what He asks me to do! Thank you for this reminder, I needed it today!

    • Oh, it is such a hard thing to do, isn’t it? I still have to remind myself that, because He forgave me, I CAN forgive others. Sometimes my head gets it, but my heart doesn’t want to listen. Praying for you, sweet Karen!

  2. Stephanie, I can’t thank you enough for this post. I have been struggling w/ forgiving someone who has hurt me immensely. This is exactly what I needed to hear. How can I not forgive when I have been completely forgiven?! Thank you. Thank you. Many blessings my sister in Christ.

    • Oh, I’m so glad these words spoke to your heart as much as they did to my own. It IS hard to forgive – sometimes my head gets it, but my heart doesn’t want to listen. Praying for you, sweet friend!

  3. Forgiveness is really for us…it helps us to live free in the most amazing way!

    Rich blessings, Stephanie, as your true-living speaks encouragement to others…

  4. Thank you Stephanie… I’m in a healing process and truly needed this. I solicit your agreement in prayer for discovery and recovery from a callous heart. That I never truly knew existed until my sister in Christ nonchalantly told me. Who knew…. and how long has this been here? I don’t have the answers to those questions but I do know that God has already begun to starring moving ne through it. Gotta love my Jesus!

  5. So over the last few months, I’ve really been praying about forgiveness, not because I have some big wrong I need to learn how to forgive, but because I simply have no idea how to forgive!

    And then, BAM! Everywhere I go, everywhere I click, everything I read has been focused on forgiveness. I’m starting to learn…s-l-o-w-l-y.
