Forgiving One Another

Just a few days ago we, as believers in Christ, were celebrating His resurrection. We were rejoicing that Our God forgave us of all sin if we believed that his Son, Jesus – was truly the Christ; Our Redeemer. Forgiveness!!! We have shown ourselves to be so grateful!

If we have truly received the gift of grace given at Calvary – then it should not be a stretch for us to forgive others. We must always remember the great mercy shown us in the death of Christ and we must always endeavor to show that mercy in the world. We know what we have been saved from!! We know what state we were in when Christ redeemed us! We are required to be merciful as our brothers and sisters ask our forgiveness. This is not to say that we become doormats — but expressly that when someone offends us or enters into debt with us and asks for mercy — we cannot deny them.

An unwillingness to forgive one another places us in a position to pay the debt that Christ has already paid for us!

Father, I thank You for forgiving my sins and for taking away my sin debt. Give me a heart like Yours, so that I may have compassion and show mercy to those who ask for it. May the love of Christ dwell in me richly!!

Leaving on a jet plane …

Guess what? I’m sitting in the Nairobi, Kenya airport right now!!! It has been 9 months since I have been approved to travel to Africa, and now I’m back to work fully. Friday morning I had my 6 month follow-up with the neurosurgeon, Dr. Tandon. He says that the MRI is Perfect!! EEG is Normal!! Dr. Tandon and the entire team was overjoyed that I was getting ready to travel. They found it so funny – and in line with my new personality – that the flight was leaving just hours after I left the office. 🙂 AND … they have freed me! I don’t have to visit the neurosurgeon’s office again!!!! I do have more followups with the neurologist, Dr. Hope, and with the neuropsychologist, Dr. Brier. But I Am Feeling Healed and Delivered!

Y’all … God is So Amazing!!! Amazing Healer! Amazing Way Maker! I have not sang in almost two years because I wasn’t able to remember lyrics, but I’ve been singing and worshipping even on the plane! I’ve been singing this song most …

Lord, I thank You for Your mercy; and I thank You for Your grace; for all You’ve done for me – I could never repay! But here’s all I am, please use me! I’ve been created for Your glory. And with my whole heart I’ll worship You all of my days. For You are Faithful! So Faithful! All my needs You never fail to provide! So underserving, You still adore me! So with my whole heart I’ll worship You all of my days!!

Pray with & for me. I’m out of of the USA from April 6th – May 11th. Back just in time for Mother’s Day!

O, Lord, I know that I am blessed because I have learned to praise you with passion and strong reality. I walk in the light of Your presence, desiring to feel you with me each and every day. I rejoice in Your name, O God, every day and all of the day. I exalt in Your righteousness. Through Jesus, Your son, I will continually offer to You a true sacrifice of praise with my own lips, so that my thanks, yes my gratefulness, will lift You up in a way that everyone can see!
