Because of relationships with

acquaintances, friends and families,

we often find ourselves in conflict.

There are just certain words, habits,

or comments that irritate us.

Irritations can lead to

unforgiveness. As Christians,

unforgiveness is an unacceptable

quality. As Christians, we simply

keep our feelings inside.

Unforgiveness damages us as a person,

creates self-bondage, carries guilt,

self anger and rebellion against God.

Unforgiveness leads to

destruction of our prayer life,

worship, witnessing, giving, blocks

spiritual growth, and often leads to

physical problems. When irritations

cause us to be unforgiving, we must

quickly acknowledge it, take

responsibility for it, confess it to

God, and ask Him to forgive us. We

must ask God to enable us to

forgive. We should pray for the

person that we havenít forgiven and

seek out what we can do for them.

Evidence that we have forgiven

the person comes when we vow we wonít

feel the same way toward them. We

must have a new attitude toward

them. We need to accept the person

the way they are and understand why

they act the way they act. It is

only through true forgiveness that

irritations are dissolved and peace is

restored. We are no longer irritated

when we have Godís peace.

This is like the third story in a row where I feel like God had the author pen it especially for me. Your words are just what I need at this exact moment as the day has been hard on my heart and self-esteem.

The only red ink I might mention is you repeated the word forgiveness and irritant quite often. Part of the repetition was a great point to help drive the message home but you may want to substitute forgiveness sometimes for absolution, mercy, respite, or even compassion.

But even that tiny bit of red ink did not distract me from your mission. You did a nice job of tackling the topic while delivering just the exact words I needed to read at this exact moment in time. I'm grateful God chose you as His obedient servant to deliver a message to my hurting heart. Your words mean more than you will ever know.
