Oh Lord, help us learn to forgive. Many things are to hard to get over, especially when someone purposely hurts us, and so we build up walls and hold different grudges. This is very sad, but all so true. I know how easy this can happen with me and people in my family. Although I have forgiven my sister and my other family members for saying I have I have a mental disability, being around them now is still difficult. They say these things because of how bold I am in sharing Your gospel message with people. They see it as pushy and that I must have some sort of mental issue for doing it. If they just knew that I tell people about You because of my great love for You and them. You have raised me up from death to life and I am so grateful. You have blessed my life like no other and placed me in the beloved. I wish that people could see the relationship we have made together. Then, they would want to know more and stop coitizing me for being Your witness on earth. As for my life, I will never stop telling people about You, Jesus, even until my last breath. I love You more than all things. Persecution will come, and in the same way, I will forgive these people for what they are doing. I trust in You, Lord. Amen.
Genesis 44:15,16 (KJV)
15 And Joseph said unto them, What deed is this that ye have done? wot ye not that such a man as I can certainly divine?
16 And Judah said, What shall we say unto my lord? what shall we speak? or how shall we clear ourselves? God hath found out the iniquity of thy servants: behold, we are my lord’s servants, both we, and he also with whom the cup is found.
It is never good to get back at people when they have hurt us, but to forgive them in the same way God does.
