Faithful Friday - All About Forgiveness

Friday, July 8, 2016


Hi yall! I try to steer clear of talking about my beliefs and religion on my blog as much as possible just because I don’t want to sound like I’m preaching at all. However, Isaac and I have been reading the Bible a lot lately (20 chapters a day). Our goal is to completely read the Bible together before our wedding day and so far if we stay on track we should be done in about three months! I've been getting a lot of new understanding from reading the Bible and it's honestly changed my heart so much. Something I believe a lot of people struggle with including myself is forgiveness. From my own personal experience I’ve seen how damaging holding a grudge can be. The thing is holding a grudge and not forgiving someone is not damaging them it’s only damaging yourself. The question we need to ask ourselves is not “how do we forgive?” but “why should we forgive?” We need to forgive others in order to rid ourselves of the negative feelings.
