The restorative love of God opens the way to forgiveness.
I know that forgiveness benefits myself first and foremost. If I face a situation that seems unforgivable, I remind myself to focus on the situation and not the person or people involved.
Forgiveness begins with me. Today I hold a mirror up to myself and find the cleansing, purifying gift of forgiveness that is mine to give, as well as receive. I understand that holding on to hurts or grudges only serves to weigh me down and diminish the light I share.
I visualize past wrongs immersed in the holy fire of Spirit. I see them cleansed and myself refined and blessed by the lessons they brought me. I forgive, I let go, and I am free to be the best I can be. The restorative love of God opens the way to forgiveness.
He looked, and the bush was blazing, yet it was not consumed.—Exodus 3:2
