Choosing Forgiveness

Thursday, September 27, 2012

By Reverend Stacy Amara

Choosing Forgiveness

Thank you for being goodness, grace, mercy and my Divine inspiration, God.

I recognize that one of your greatest gifts is that of forgiveness, yet it is one that often times I struggle with.

At times, I can speak the words yet the pain still lingers on in my heart.

Move me from a place of denial and avoidance to a place of deep healing and true forgiveness.

I release all people, situations and circumstances, real or perceived in my conscious and sub-conscious mind that need healing and forgiveness.

I surrender all thoughts, memories, beliefs, actions and activities that I'm holding on to that keep me from loving myself and others fully and completely.

I offer up any and all experiences of anger,
jealousy, resentment and rage and I lovingly choose forgiveness for myself and all others involved.

I love You, Father God, for lifting me up even when I can't seem to do that for myself.

Thank You for showing me that when I hang on to things other than Your love, I'm only punishing myself and that goes against everything You want for me.

Thank You for giving me the courage to forgive myself for all the lies and stories I've been hanging on to as a way to keep myself in a self-imposed prison.

Thank You, Father, for teaching me that in forgiveness comes freedom. I am eternally
grateful for Your wisdom, knowledge and teachings, God.

Amen & Ashe!

Reverend Stacy Amara

Lord I thank you that for today I have a greater awareness of the areas of my life I have not surrendered. The areas of my life I need to remove more of me so that you may enter in. The places I've numbed, hidden, run from, and the places I have held onto too tightly, waved as a banner, and used dry. Lord fill my cup. Amen.

I hope all is well your way.

Prayer by Rev. Heather Mizell

Sunday, September 23, 2012

From Reverend Heather Mizell:
It is my deepest and most heartfelt intention to be a better me today.

I desire to be more of what and who You created me to be today.

I desire to create a life that complements who You are in me.

Today, I set my hands to do Your work. I allow my heart and mind to align so that I may focus on what matters in Your eyes.

I come present to each moment, allowing the possibilities to unfold in a manner that honors You.

I release all personal judgment and complaints and embrace the beauty and newness of each experience.

I AM a better me today.

I give myself permission to do things differently, in a more loving way.

I claim authority over my old habits and patterns and awaken to a new way of living.

I forgive all things, people, and experiences of the past.

As I move throughout the day, I focus on the goodness and newness of each moment.

I take a few moments each hour to give thanks to You for allowing a better me to emerge today.

It is my deepest and most heartfelt intention to be a better me today.

Today was the first official day of my journey back toward wellness. Yesterday I found this site and joined. For many years I have lived in shame and pain alongside of joy and laughter. Yet, today I can let down my fears and let others into my journey. Not that anyone who looks at me can't see things are out of balance as I weigh over 120 lbs over my goal weight. My body does not hide what my smile often does. Today I cried. It was healing, powerful, and hard. Today I decided I am worth being the focus as a empty dry vessel is not useful for new wine. I want to hold God's best and have it overflow to all those around me. Being a dry cracked vessel doesn't create an environment for that. So for today I want to surrender myself and say I am THANKFUL. Peace in the journey...
