#HealThySelf Challenge – Day 12
FORGIVE YOUR ACCUSERS
You may have noticed that these challenges are getting shorter and shorter… well, there’s a reason for that. You have laid your foundational work and now come the steps where you let go, face truth and move on in order for healing to be prevalent in your life. Today’s focus may be a hard one for some… forgiveness.
Step Twelve: FORGIVE them!
Let me keep this brief. In order to heal, you must fully forgive those that are responsible for hurting you. Use wisdom. No one said to forget or enter/continue a toxic relationship. Also note that you may never receive an apology or an explanation. The bottom line is that forgiveness is for YOU. Drop the baggage for good and turn these people over to God. Forgiveness is RIGHT and you can’t get healing without it. Know that it is a process, but it is also a choice.
So, on the twelfth day’s journey to #HealThySelf, your CHALLENGE is to:
– FORGIVE EVERYONE THAT HURT YOU. With God’s help, you can do it. It is better for you. Remember your ultimate goal is healing not vengeance. For vengeance is the Lord’s anyway.
#HealThySelf Prayer for the Angry
God, I have troubled forgiving (enter names here) because they hurt me so much and/or make me so angry. Your Word says that I can be angry, but I cannot sin. For Your Word also says that I must forgive in order to be forgiven. Again, Lord I need Your help. Help me to turn them over to You completely. Help me through my feelings. I am tired of how they affect me and I want to live freely. I may not know how to do so, so again I ask for Your help. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
