Make peace with your brother while you have opportunity, for you don’t know what tomorrow will bring. Let us examine your heart together…
- Is there strife?
- Is there unforgiveness?
- Is there anger?
Or is it merely sorrow, for you have been unrelenting and kept the former in your heart for so long you no longer remember why? A bitter heart will rot the bones and eventually destroy your life. Whereas, forgiveness, takes a moment of humility that will deliver you from a lifetime of evil.
Make the decision today to open your heart to Me and allow Me to sort out what you have held tight, held captive and not trusted even yourself to examine. Together we can eradicate all you harbor that brings harm; irrigate the wound and let healing come. The weight that lifts off your shoulders will add years to your life–the sadness and anger will be gone.
When you forgive, I will forgive you and new life you will find. If only you would choose to forgive.

“You give your mouth free rein for evil, and your tongue frames deceit. You sit and speak against your brother; you slander your own mother’s son. These things you have done and I have been silent; you thought that I was one like yourself. But now I rebuke you, and lay the charge before you.” Ps. 50:19-21
“Let the words of my mouth and the mediation of my heart be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer.” Ps. 19:14
“Search me, O God, and know my heart! Try me and know my thoughts! And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting!” Ps. 139:23-24
“Create in me a clean heart, O God, and put a new and right spirit within me. Cast me not away from thy presence, and take not thy holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of thy salvation, and uphold me with a willing spirit.” Ps. 51:10-12
“Then Peter came up and said to him, ‘Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? As many as seven times?’ Jesus said to him, ‘I do not say to you seven times, but seventy times seven.'” Mt. 18:21
A “special” lady gave me your card and wrote your name on the back. She told me about your blog. She is proud of you, and I would be too. Especially, if she were my daughter.
Ah, you must be from Florida 🙂 Thank you
Lori, Are you in Florida?
No Michigan, but my parents go to Florida in the winter
OH! Snow birds, love them, wish I could fly north in the summer!
Yes Michigan is a wonderful place to spend summer, but at least your hot season is much shorter than our cold.
