Thought for today – 03/04/2011

“Given enough time, the small roots of bitterness in our own hearts can grow so strong and so powerful, they can destroy our lives. You and I must choose to forgive those offenders that hurt us. We must choose forgiveness over bitterness. Otherwise, we incarcerate our hearts in self-made prisons-dark, deserted, and desolate. Pulling up the weeds of bitterness might take a long time. Remember, forgiveness is a process, a journey. But you and I can start the process with the willful decision to forgive. God will help us along our journey to complete forgiveness, one step and one day at a time.”
~Denise George, Cultivating a Forgiving Heart
