The One You Won’t Forgive

You know the one. You think of him constantly. Her face invades your thoughts all day long. You promised yourself you would let it go. You think about him more than Jesus. The memory comes in the middle of the night. You cross the street to the other side before you near her house. You told yourself you would stop grinding your teeth. You can’t stop thinking about what happened. There he is again. Center stage. The one you won’t forgive. Then, neatly, safely, quietly, you tuck the person away into the deepest place in your heart. You pull yourself together.
 You make yourself forget about it. You get focused. You put on your best dress. You don your best smile. You straighten your tie. Off to church. You pray. “Our Father, who art in heaven…….Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us….” You shake hands with your neighbor. You go home. You never even heard the prayer you spoke. “…as we forgive those who trespass against us.” You asked the Lord to forgive you for your mistakes. And, once again, you ignored the one you tucked away in the deepest place in your heart – the place that should have been filled with God. You go home. You take off your tie. You take off your dress. You stand naked before God. He already knows. The one you won’t forgive. How much longer can you stand it? Forgive. In the name of Jesus.

“And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses (Mark 11: 25 KJV).”
