Joining The Challenge (sort of) // Day 8

Wednesday, May 8, 2013

 Today I'm joining Jenni in her challenge to Blog Every Day in May.  I'm joining a little late - yes.  And I am going to be sporadic in when I join this month.  But hey, I'm jumping on the bandwagon for this topic.  So here goes:

Day 8 Challenge:  Advice for anyone.

My advice for anyone and everyone is something that is extremely hard for me to do sometimes.  Something that hurts my pride.  Something that goes against what the world tells us at times.  But it is something that can truly set you free – forgiveness.  Forgive those who have hurt you, lied to you or stolen from you.  Forgive those who’ve taken advantage of you or judged you.  Forgive those who have repeatedly done you wrong because in the end, forgiveness isn’t about the person who needs it.  It’s about the person that gives it.  And it will set you free.  It will free your heart for better things to take shape – like love and happiness.  So that is my advice.  Give forgiveness freely.  And now I’ll leave you with a quote from one of my favorite songs by Matthew West, aptly named “Forgiveness.”
"So, let it go and be amazed
By what you see through eyes of grace
The prisoner that it really frees is you… Forgiveness."
-Matthew West

Awesome quote. I saw her linkup a few days too late, I wish I could have joined the bandwagon as well, but time is not on my side this month. ;)
