Letting go of offenses
It’s hard to stay offended when I remember everything I have received through grace!
It’s hard to stay offended when I know how much God has forgiven me, and how he still keeps on forgiving me, healing me, teaching me, and having mercy on me!
It’s hard to stay offended when I think about God’s sacrifice!
It’s hard to stay offended when I think about God’s unfailing love!
It’s hard to stay offended when I think about all God has done, and all that He is still yet to do!
It’s hard to stay offended when I think about all the priceless blessings God has generously bestowed upon my life! Undeserving as I am!
It’s hard to stay offended when I THINK!
It’s hard to stay offended when I REFLECT!
It’s hard to stay offended when my heart is overflowing with GRATITUDE!!!
As I write this post this morning, I remember this song… allow me to share it with you today:
“When I think about the Lord,
How He saved me, how He raised me,
How He filled me, with the Holy Ghost;
How He healed me, to the uttermost…
When I think about the Lord,
How He picked me up and turned me around,
How He placed my feet on solid ground…
It makes me want to shout,
Hallelujah, Thank you Jesus,
LORD, you’re worthy, of all the glory, and all the honor, and all the praise…”

Dear Lord, please help us to be quick to listen, and slow to become angry. When we do get offended, help us to let go of offenses quickly! Help us to STOP, THINK, and REFLECT! May our hearts be filled with gratitude, NOT offense! Thank you God because we know you will always help us. May we always rely on you!
