Forgive/Scripture Word challenge #14

I really am enjoying these challenges that Patter offers on her site "Triple the Scraps."  She is a very talented person and a very talented writer.  You need to check out her page she did for the word "Forgive."  She has a wonderful devotion on it.  You can see it by clicking here

When I was doing my word challenge today, I thought how much grace our Father in heaven shows us everyday by forgiving us of our many sins and how little grace we show other individuals when they wrong us.  I realized just how much my daughter was growing in Christ yesterday when she said something to me about something I had said in regards to "if this does not happen then I am not going to do this."  I looked at her and said, "I don't know why I always say that, because God always deals with me and I wind up having to ask forgiveness for being so unforgiving.  That is why I used the first verse on this page. 

"And whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him, that your Father in heaven may also forgive you your trespasses." Mark 11:25

I pray that God always opens my eyes to the sin in my life so that I can always honor Him and glorify Him in all I do.  He is my Saviour and all I need to live a life of fulfillment.  Which leads to my second verse.

"If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." 1 John 1:9

He will cleanse us!  How great is that?  But not only will He cleanse us, but He will forgive us our sins.  I don't know about you, but I need cleansing everyday.  Thanks you Lord for your wonderful forgiveness.

For this page I used the My Digital Studio by Stampin' Up!  Thanks for looking!
