FORGIVENESS & MERCY


If everything in my day seems to fall apart, I want to make sure it ends with everyone loving each other, and each of us choosing to forgive and asking to be forgiven.

 

Everything can fall apart, but I never want to end my day without my family showing love to one another other. We might argue, disagree, and be angry at one another other, but we can never allow ourselves to stop loving one another.

 

I try not go to bed with resentments anymore. I don’t like to carry them much at all, but it can happen if I don’t watch myself. I try not to hold onto things, because I regularly ask God to show mercy toward me and my transgressions. He has done this, and I feel that I should also do the same for others, as best as I can! It is important to right my wrongs and to ask for forgiveness if I harm someone.

 

These are just a few things I reaaallly really try my best to make happen when I see a bad day getting uglier. It doesn’t always work the way I would like it to, but it is very important to maintain these practices in my life.

 

Get what matters!

 

Have a great week!
