Each time I forgive, my heart opens.

Opening my heart to love, I find the strength to forgive. In some circumstances, I may find forgiveness nearly impossible. Holding on to feelings of resentment or judgment may feel safer. I may want people to change before I forgive them. But there is another answer: Allowing the indwelling Christ Spirit to open my heart to love.

Through the power of Christ in me, I have the strength to release the weight of unforgiveness. Christ love is stronger than any perceived injury or harm. Another person's unkindness toward me has no power to hurt me. To forgive is to love, and to love is to let the Christ Spirit heal my heart and my life.

Whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone; so that your Father in heaven may also forgive you your trespasses.--Mark 11:25
