I felt an unction to move this up the board. As we move into the holiday season, I pray that whatever happens that we find time to forgive ourselves. Practice mindfulness during this time of year and learn to love you at best. Much love today - Jacki

Yesterday messages at church moved me into such a better place. I thank God, that I am on the path to forgiveness and knowing that God has me in His hands. I am thanking and praising God for release!

Sweetlips, Just remember it's under the blood, God has forgiven you so don't remind Him ;-) and yes I know it's easier said than done but oh how sweet when we walk in His forgiveness towards others and ourselves - and He does love you!

Justme2 - I am also in the midst of a storm and I have to forgive myself for something really asinine that I did.

Wow, I haven't been on for awhile, starting a new business, part-time job, daughter getting married lol...enough excuses
but when I saw this thread - awesome!
I have a youtube video on forgiveness and I can tell you first hand, you are the one held captive by the one you are not forgiving. There is freedom in letting them go, forgiving them and praying for them! God does change your heart if you just ask and keep asking until it's in your spirit! Thanks for sharing.

Pearl, yes, there is so much freedom - to wake up in the morning and not thinking about pain, but being grateful to plan another day. The elimination of pain involved in hriting because of a broken heart and a broken spirit. I do hope people choose freedom in Christ.

Great thread. It really is important to keep the channels open by being in forgiveness all the time. Thanks~ I have a harder time forgiving me than anyone else. I love the scriptures and will definitely check my heart to make sure I am in forgiveness to others.

Philippians 4:8; Finally, brothers, whatever things are true, whatever things are honorable, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report; if there is any virtue, and if there is any praise, think about these things.

Teach 41, I don't know what the relationship is with the ex-wife or why the anger. Ask God to forgive you of any wrongs real or perceived. We can not change or be responsible how others feel, but we can be responsible for how we feel, and how we react to the situations. Here are some facts as I see them:

Your husband loves his children and you love them as well.
His ex-wife is angry about something, and believe it or not, that can be a typical experience.
The children are integral in your lives
His brother and sister-in-law have taken sides on whatever else has occurred.

Hatred is a strong strong word precious and one we need to release from our vocabulary. We have to forgive 7x70 - that is your responsibility in the journey to be obedient to God. Pray and ask God to create in you a clean heart and request right thinking. I often have to ask for revelation and for God to show me where I am out of order. For peace, understanding and forgiveness , turn this over to the Lord. Allow God to change your mind and heart about it.

Today, not really knowing, our son was at family dinner, and we had a wonderful time. I turned this 5 year old situation over to God. While he is not my natural son, he is my son, nonetheless and I love him. Try to love the brother, sister -in-law and ex-wife. Love them no matter what the situation and then let God do God. Blessings to you. emoticon

Thank you SO much for creating this topic. It really made me think. I am experiencing a rough time with family members and WOW! Forgiveness isn't coming. My husband's ex-wife is so angry and hateful towards us both and my husband's brother and his wife have chosen her. They had 2 children together who are both athletes. We attend games and my husband's brother and his wife don't even look at us...they go and sit with his ex wife. I am having a tough time with all of this and am caught up in anger, hatred and unforgiveness.

Seeking peace and forgiveness.

Thanks Debbie. Charkim, one thing I know that if you are purposed to forgive, and you ask God to assist you, guide you and release you, it will happen, just as you have asked for prayer that today go well. Just as you have purposed for your niece. It is hurtful when a family member is angry - we have an older son like that. I have turned the relationship over to God for God's intercession.

We know familial relationships are difficult, because they are made up of people, and Jesus was no exception. It was the family of humankind that hung him on the cross; the same people who said they followed with him, stood and denied him, His words, Father, forgive them for they know not what they do. I will stand you for your niece and I ask that you pray ' the love of God in your heart for her. I hope today went well.

I am creating this thread so we can post about forgiveness. Even if you are having a difficult time forgiving, yourself or someone else, post it here. I will be praying for the information here daily and of course anyone else who cares to join.

Wash me thoroughly [and repeatedly] from my iniquity and guilt and cleanse me and make me wholly pure from my sin! Psalm 51: 2

Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right, persevering, and steadfast spirit within me. Cast me not away from Your presence and take not Your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of Your salvation and uphold me with a willing spirit.
Psalm 51: 10-12

He who covers and forgives an offense seeks love, but he who repeats or harps on a matter separates even close friends. Proverbs 17: 9


If My people, who are called by My name, shall humble themselves, pray, seek, crave, and require of necessity My face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7: 14

O Lord, hear! O Lord, forgive! O Lord, give heed and act! Do not delay, for Your own sake, O my God, because Your city and Your people are called by Your name. Daniel 9: 19

For if you forgive people their trespasses [their reckless and willful sins, leaving them, letting them go, and giving up resentment], your heavenly Father will also forgive you. Matthew 6: 14

If we [freely] admit that we have sinned and confess our sins, He is faithful and just (true to His own nature and promises) and will forgive our sins [dismiss our lawlessness] and [continuously] cleanse us from all unrighteousness [everything not in conformity to His will in purpose, thought, and action].
1 John 1: 9


Behold my affliction and my pain and forgive all my sins [of thinking and doing].
Psalm 25: 18


Then Peter came up to Him and said, Lord, how many times may my brother sin against me and I forgive him and let it go? [As many as] up to seven times? Jesus answered him, I tell you, not up to seven times, but seventy times seven! Matthew 18: 21-22


So also My heavenly Father will deal with every one of you if you do not freely forgive your brother from your heart his offenses. Matthew 18: 35


For I will be merciful and gracious toward their sins and I will remember their deeds of unrighteousness no more.
Hebrews 8: 12


He then goes on to say, And their sins and their lawbreaking I will remember no more. Now where there is absolute remission (forgiveness and cancellation of the penalty) of these [sins and lawbreaking], there is no longer any offering made to atone for sin. Hebrews 10: 17-18


Be gentle and forbearing with one another and, if one has a difference (a grievance or complaint) against another, readily pardoning each other; even as the Lord has [freely] forgiven you, so must you also [forgive]. Colossians 3: 13


For You, O Lord, are good, and ready to forgive [our trespasses, sending them away, letting them go completely and forever]; and You are abundant in mercy and loving-kindness to all those who call upon You.
Psalm 86: 5


In Him we have redemption (deliverance and salvation) through His blood, the remission (forgiveness) of our offenses (shortcomings and trespasses), in accordance with the riches and the generosity of His gracious favor. Ephesians 1: 7


So let it be clearly known and understood by you, brethren, that through this Man forgiveness and removal of sins is now proclaimed to you. Acts 13: 38
