I find peace through forgiveness.
After feeling hurt or wronged by another person, I may wonder, “How could they do that?” When I am upset, I may seek answers, believing answers will ease my pain. Yet peace comes not through logic or reason, but through spiritual understanding. While I may never know how or why something happened, I can always find peace through forgiveness. Shifting my awareness from the situation, softly breathing in Spirit, I focus on my heart space. I ask my Higher Power for understanding. As I release defensiveness or blame, the healing love of God frees me and all concerned from this experience. I choose to forgive and my mind and heart are at peace.
Create in me a clean heart, O God, and put a new and right spirit within me.—Psalm 51:10
