Forgiveness starts with a tiny seed and grows from pain to peace .

Day Eight –  lent challenge – forgive  

Over lent I will be praying for those that have have hurt us and finding it somewhere in my heart to forgive them.

Forgiveness starts with a tiny seed.

True forgiveness is not just words
It Starts with little thoughts
That become bigger thoughts
Thoughts become that painful words
Words that won’t form without being full of anger
Words that bound us to our pain
Repeating words, over and over
Slowly they don’t hurt
You can say them .
Stepping stones of emotions , stepping stones of pain
Words no longer form in you mouth but in your heart
They move  from anger and pain to peace .

Colossians 3:13 says, “Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others.”
