AS I RELEASE RESENTMENTS, I AM RELEASED.
“I may feel justified in withholding forgiveness, especially if someone’s words or actions have caused me lasting anguish or pain. Yet, deep within, I believe I should forgive. The emotional exertion of holding on to upset blocks me from the peace and happiness I wish to feel.
Today I choose forgiveness to free myself from the weight of resentment. When I forgive, I free myself from any encumbrances that weigh me down. My spirit is lifted, and my heart feels warm and full of love.
I am becoming patient, understanding, and compassionate. As I forgive others, it becomes easier to forgive myself. I feel lighter and more likely to see the positive in my life. I am truly grateful for the spiritual gift of forgiveness.”
From Unity Daily Word
Anyone whom you forgive, I also forgive. What I have forgiven, if I have forgiven anything, has been for your sake in the presence of Christ.—2 Corinthians 2:10
