forgive and forget

“Blessed are they whose transgressions are forgiven, whose sins are covered. Blessed is the man whose sin the Lord will never count against him.” Romans 4:7-8

What does forgiveness mean to you?

If you forgive someone do you forget it? OR do you find yourself digging in the shadows when you want to prove a point?

I’ve heard it said as human’s we can’t forget but God can and does – Jesus died for that purpose.

Psalm 103 says, “As far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us.”

Unfortunately, I think of several I have forgiven but I don’t want to put myself in the line of fire again.

Lingering memories affect relationships – people get separated, friendships cease, marriages are torn.

Can we find a way to let God’s love and light fill the darkness waiting to destroy?

Yes – some weeks I have deep topics I wrestle with.
