It was my turn in the prayer room.
I was handed all the cards and divided them equally among the four of us.
It was God who made sure I received this one.
No name was on the card.
Nothing to indicate who it was from.
I don't know if they wanted forgiveness for themselves.
Or, were they asking for prayer for them to find it in their hearts to forgive another?
Forgiveness is a funny thing.
We want others to grant it to us,
but we often won't show that grace to others.
We nurse the grudge.
We ponder on it and talk about it to anyone who will listen.
It becomes that poison we drink expecting the other person to die.
I've come to realize (age and experience and wisdom),
that it's best to take the "easy way out".....
To take the path that's easier on my heart.....
and my sanity.
To listen to the voice that says.....
(sing it with me......♫♪Let it go.....Let it go♫♪)
As I held this card between my hands and prayed for the unknown person,
I asked God to let them go to their car in peace.
Either the peace of accepting His prompting to invite Him into their heart.....
or the peace of forgiving another!
