Letting Go, Looking Upward

We have all been offended at one time or another I am sure, but as Joyce Meyers points out in her book Power Thoughts "Believing the best of people is very helpful in the process of forgiving people who offended us."

Let's face it we all make mistakes we say things that are said in the heat of the moment, but that doesn't mean we have to hold on to the bitterness and anger. As Joyce Meyers points out once again in the same above mentioned book, "when we hold on to anger, we are not hurting the person we are angry at, but at ourselves."

That can be hard to comprehend sometimes, because so often our flesh gets in the way and our emotions get the best of us, but we can try and let things go and allow ourselves to heal, and though it may happen at a different pace for everyone, it should happen if we give it to the Lord.

God Bless
