I normally don’t do “spiritual” posts on here but my Jesus has been working in my heart and I feel led to share it with y’all.
When seeking spiritual healing from bad situations I’m learning one of the keys is grace, giving it and accepting it. Forgiveness is up there too but I want to talk about my buddy, Grace.
Sometimes bad things happen or bad choices are made and you can spend your whole life regretting things and wishing you could turn back time. That is definitely an option, but it’s not one that will lead to peace or happyness.
Grace means to get something you do not deserve, Unmerited favor. Forgiveness is definitely something that requires grace because rarely does someone deserve forgiveness. I know that I don’t deserve it.
But God gives it to us anyway and He wants us to give it to others. Why? It’s not because it will make others feel better, although that is a benefit, but because it frees you. To be happy, To laugh again, To be free from the crushing weight of guilt, and anger.
“Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.” -Heb. 4:16
God gives us grace to help us get through this life. For me, giving out forgiveness isn’t something I particularly struggle with, It’s thereceiving that’s hard. But God wants us to accept forgiveness just as much as we give it out. If we are being held back by shame, or guilt, then we’re unable to love and minister to others. You never know when someone needs a helping hand, and I know it helps to hear I’mnot the only one who struggles in certain areas. We are not alone in this life. God has given us Christians each other to lean on, to encourage, to love, and to pray for.
Move on from whatever bad things lie in your past, and move forward. Learn from every situation and grow. It’s what makes us who we are. :o)
