Deciding to Forgive

It’s one of the hardest decisions of all. The one that brings the deepest healing.


That’s why the enemy hates it so much.


The decision to forgive.


We don’t always like to talk about it. It makes us uncomfortable, because it’s super easy for me to sit on this side of the computer screen and tell you to forgive that person.

You know the one.

I haven’t been in your situation. I don’t know what you’re feeling. But if we can all remember that we each have a story - a time in our life where someone caused unimaginable pain - then maybe we can come together and encourage one another through this whole forgiveness thing.


Are you willing?


It’s a big decision. And once we choose, we need to stick to it for real progress to happen. Unforgiveness keeps a closed door to our hearts. But if we are willing, we will see miracles in our lives, and in the lives of others too.


When we decide to forgive, we open a door, allowing Jesus to whisper peace to our hearts. (Click to tweet.)


I’ve written a Scripture prayer for forgiving someone who hurt you. A Scripture prayer walks through a specific passage in God’s Word and helps us apply those words to our circumstances. It’s like speaking God’s Word into our lives.


Let’s take a powerful step today. Let’s read this prayer together. Can you imagine what God will do when He hears all our prayers to forgive?
