Since we are still in the land of the living that assures us we have another chance to get it right! All our disappointments, let-downs, and [or] painful moments can be transformed. Today those moments can be replaced with peace, love, happiness, and joy.
It all starts with FORGIVENESS.
We want people to forgive us of things we have done, not done, or said that was inappropriate to them. This being said, we need to do the same but first we have to release ourselves and others of things we are holding on to (that lie, that break-up, that whipping, etc.) and then forgive ourselves and others for those transgressions that have been committed.
Let not your heart be troubled (John 14:1a). Yes, our sorrows are REAL, but the VICTORY is ours through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Do not focus on the problems, issues, or situations but FOCUS on the One who can give you peace through it all!
