For some people the word sorry is an apology, for some it's a personality trait.

Last week I discovered that someone was trying to take credit for something I did. Now, this was no little thing. We are all tasked with certain objectives, and for one of my programs, I acheived it all in one shot instead of little steps. It was one of those perfect opportunity things, where I know it's God, and I hit the sweet spot. Perfecto. Someone tried to take my perfecto as credit themself. This makes me crazy. They had nothing to do with it, they weren't even on the program when I did it.

Then... earlier today, I found out that for about a year, in a small way, someone had been taking advantage of me. Not thrilled. It kind of made me angry because I was shocked.

Now, I know what I have to do... I have to forgive. Ugh. I hate that. But I will. I just need to go talk to God about it.

Luke 6:37 "Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven

Sometimes forgiving someone is not about the "someone" but about our hearts...saying "I forgive you", gives us the ability to move past something that could keep us bitter.
I certainly know about forgiving. It's the thing that's easy to take but hard to give. God gives us comfort when we are forgiven , and strength when we forgive. He will strengthen you, Margie.
