A Word About Forgiveness

Happy Sunday!

Here’s your #hopenote for the week:

“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 also forgive.” Colossians 3:13 AMP

FRAGILEScripture Reading:
Matthew 18:21-22
2 Corinthians 2:10

Reflection and Journaling:
Think about a person that you need to forgive. What caused the offense?

What is it costing you (to stay offended)?

What action will you take to overcome your offense or perhaps reconcile? When will you do this?

Prayer for today:

Father, thank you for the beautiful gift forgiveness. At Calvary’s cross, Jesus redeemed me for every past, present and future sin. I confess that I have been hurt and really don’t want to forgive but I know it’s the right thing to do. I surrender my feelings to obey you. I release and forgive__________________ and choose not to rehearse what happened in the future. By your grace, I offer mercy, compassion, and grace. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Does this resonate with you? Is there anyone in your life that you need to forgive? Have you ever been forgiven? Please share your thoughts and comments. * Previously published on HOPE Builders blog. Excerpt from forthcoming devotional.

HOPE and MLK Day

Happy MLK Day!

Here’s your #hopenote for the week:

“Now we have this hope as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul. It cannot slip and it cannot break down under whoever steps out on it- a hope that reaches farther and enters into the very certainty of the Presence within the veil.” Hebrews 6:19 AMP

“There is surely a future hope for you, and your hope will not be cut off.”
Proverbs 23:18 NIV

“Unto You, O Lord, do I bring my life. O my God, I trust, lean on, and am confident in You. Let me not be put to shame or (my hope in You) be disappointed; let not my enemies triumph over me. Yes, let none who trust and wait hopefully and look for You be put to shame or be disappointed…” Psalm 25:1-3 AMP
#HOPE #MLK

Scripture Reading:
Psalm 71:1- 6

Reflection:
What presently appears to be hopeless?

Now read Psalm 71: 7-24 aloud. With God, what is possible?

Prayer:
F
ather, my faith needs hope to outlast life’s trials and circumstances. I declare that my hope is anchored in the Lord who never disappoints or fails. Help me to maintain my focus – which is confidence in you and not my own strength. Your word says this type of hope cannot break down under anyone who steps out on it. Thank you for hope today – Hunger Outlasting Problematic Encounters. In Jesus’ name. Amen. *Excerpt from forthcoming HOPE Notes devotional.

Keep The Proper Perspective

Happy Sunday!
Here’s your HOPE Note for the week:

“Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.” Hebrews 11:1 NIV

“This hope [this confident assurance] we have as an anchor of the soul [it cannot slip and it cannot break down under whatever pressure bears upon it…”
Hebrews 6:19 AMP

“…For God has said, “I will never fail you. I will never abandon you.”
Hebrews 13:5 NLT

No matter the storm or circumstance, keep your hope in the Lord. He is the only ONE that cannot and will not fail you.
