The promise of forgiveness.
14 “For if you forgive others their sins, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15 But if you do not forgive others, your Father will not forgive you your sins." Matthew 6:14-15
Forgiveness is not a feeling, it is a choice, a decision, I must forgive and I must choose forgiveness. If you don't forgive you are chained to the past, bound up in bitterness. Letting go of anger and hatred, means you can be free of the burden of bitterness!
Forgiveness is not easy, it is very hard. I want to talk about the hurt, ask why, and dwell on my pain. But that just means I am chained to the person who I perceive hurt me. When I let go of the bitterness and give it to God, I can experience His forgiveness and I am free!
Being free is much better than being chained.
Technique- just love this months technique! Read this post for how I created the pages for the rest of the month. This week I continued the collage technique and the horizontal band and stamped forgiveness with the same stamp set. I colored in the lettering with a brush tipped into the Funky Fuchsia spray ink- did you know you can paint with spray inks?????
