“Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.” Colossians 3:13
Has your husband wronged you? Regardless of the offense, carrying unforgiveness in your heart is a burden the Lord does not want you to bear. Cast your cares on the Lord today. He loves you so much. Choose to forgive your husband for all things, large and small, and you will reap the reward of peace in your life!
Take just a moment to ponder how greatly our blameless Lord has forgiven you. How much more should we, fellow sinners, forgive our husbands? Pray and ask the Lord to help you forgive. With Him, all things are possible! If it helps you to release the burden of unforgiveness you bear, write your burden on a slip of paper, light it on fire, and drop it into a glass jar. Observe the ashes left behind and be encouraged; Jesus makes beautiful things from the ashes in our lives! Whenever you feel like picking up that burden again, continue to lay it at the foot of the cross. It is not yours to carry, sister.
Lord, please heal my heart. Show me how to forgive my husband. I give you my burdens now and do not want to pick them up again. Please bring healing into our marriage.
I am the wife of a handsome man and the mama of two little boys (with a third one on the way this summer!). I live in a little house in the woods of Colorado with a few chickens and a lot of little-boy-craziness. I love you though I’ve never met you, and I’m praying for you often. My life, like yours, isn’t perfect, but we are both perfectly loved by our Savior!
