Well, today I had some things cast up to me. Some things I have apologized for about a dozen times, with tears, but the person wronged has not been willing to forgive me, and indeed has cast the worst possible interpretation on the things I said.
But you know what? God forgives me! And I honestly can say that, though it hurts to have someone I love so angry with me, God is giving me forgiveness — and freedom — about it.
Then tonight, I was listening to The Best of Avalon, and their song, “A New Day,” so beautifully sums up how I feel.
Forgiveness feels GOOD — both receiving it from God for yourself and for others.
Here’s a link to “A New Day” with lyrics:
It’s nice that you feel forgiven even though the person you have
wronged does not forgive you. That shows strength beyond human
power which only comes from God.
