the mean girl….
When everything in you
screams in protest,
“They don’t deserve love!”
Love them even more.
Love always wins.
I am ready to meet God face to face tonight and look into those eyes of infinite holiness, for all my sins are covered by the atoning blood.
If we forgive other people, our hearts are made fit to receive forgiveness.
We learn, on the one hand, that we cannot trust ourselves even in our best moments, and, on the other, that we need not despair even in our worst, for our failures are forgiven. The only fatal thing is to sit down content with anything less than perfection.
Your neighbor may be a real, you know, donkey but you’ve gotta love him anyway. Or maybe most of all.
The only thing He forgets is our sins.
We need to forgive our brother seventy times seven not only for 490 offences but for one offence.
C. S. Lewis
The best thing we can do with the failures of the past is to let them be history.
