Amazing grace, how precious. I am so not worthy of the grace that has been shown to me through the years by my heavenly Father. His grace is a beautiful gift freely given to me. There is nothing I could ever do to earn His grace, yet He chooses to shine His grace upon me. Oh, how I love Him for that, and so much more. How could I do anything less, than give that gift away also, by forgiving those that would hurt me, or seek to bring unhappiness into my life? I have hurt for years over the fact that my two brothers, and my Dad do not love me, and they choose to not be a part of my life. I am releasing that deep hurt, and intense pain today. I am laying it at the feet of my heavenly Father, and I am not going to pick it back up. I am thankful for my brothers, and my Dad, and I will continue to lift them up in my prayers, and I will always love them. I forgive them for the hurtful things that they have said, and done to me over the years. May their hearts be softened, and the grace of God allowed to flow into their lives. But, as of today, I am no longer held captive, by their hate. By the grace of God, I have been set free, thank You Lord.
