Forgiveness is one of the most foundational principles of Christianity. However, it is not a one-time event or even a quick remedy. Forgiveness is a choice, a process, and a desire we can ask Jesus to grow in us more deeply.
I know I cannot forgive other people
by my own strength or striving.
I can only forgive
with the help of your grace
and by asking for the desire.
When I struggle with forgiveness,
give me the desire to forgive as Jesus.
Is there a person in my life I need to forgive? I will ask God to give me the desire to forgive.
