Letting It Go–To God

“Forgiveness is not defined by a feeling, although it will ultimately change our feelings. . . .  Forgiveness is our determined and deliberate willingness to let something go.  To release it from our possession.  To be willing and ready for it to no longer occupy us.  God is not asking us to let ‘it’ go haphazardly into the black hole of nonexistence.  Forgiveness means letting it go to God.  Letting it go from our power to His.  Forgiveness is the ongoing act by which we agree with God over the matter, practice the mercy He’s extended to us, and surrender the situation, the repercussions, and the hurtful person to Him.”

— Beth Moore, Praying God’s Word
