Forgiveness

By |May 4th, 2017|Categories: equipHER, Her Voice|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , |0 Comments

  Forgiveness Eleven letters which hold such great power. Power to unlock and free oneself from a life of being imprisoned to anger, offense, and bitterness. When I think of the word “forgiveness” there are many examples from the Bible that come to my mind. Examples of the power of God moving in the lives of ordinary people. Jesus models forgiveness for us as He cries out “Father, forgive them, for they don’t know what they are doing” as he [...]

The Book of Forgiving: The Fourfold Path for Healing Ourselves and our World, written by Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Nobel Peace Prize winner, Chair of The Elders, and Chair of South Africa’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission, along [...]

How do you get up after weathering persecution or setbacks?

By |November 17th, 2016|Categories: Pondering, Purpose, Spiritual Formation|Tags: , , , , , , |2 Comments

By Allie Espinoza I thought to myself, I have to get back up and dust the dirt off my shoulder. But…. It was harder to put this very thing into action after times of being hurt. In my prayer time with God I would ask, Daddy how do I get up again? How do I begin to walk the path you have set before me? I know you are there, though I feel so inadequate and judged. How do I [...]

Sometimes you have to Walk Away

By Sherrie St. Hilaire Baby fat still lays claim to her four-year-old face so when she sits beside me emoting like a head-snapping teenager, her expressions and syntax exaggerated as they are, it’s hard to keep a proportionate smile on my face. It’s difficult not to laugh outright, grab her in my grandma-flabby arms and kiss the baby-ness that I desperately want to linger just a little while longer. She gets frustrated now when I don’t stay in character, when [...]

Poison

By Cyndi Pollard It is said that, “Unforgiveness is like drinking poison yourself, and waiting for the other person to die.” Marianne Williamson We have all experienced actions against us that were so utterly grievous that we thought we would never heal from the excruciating pain that it caused. It consumed every moment of our waking hours and sometimes into our sleep. It was our first thought in the morning and was likely what we are thinking about when we couldn’t [...]

By Gail Johnsen Rehabilitating the Soul - Part 1 After my workout at the gym one day, while doing a routine stretching exercise, I heard a snap. Immediately I felt a sharp pain in the back of my leg.  I knew instantly I’d pulled my hamstring.  Serious? I was being careful! I was doing everything right! How did that happen? I wanted to scream. Someone helped me up but I could barely walk. I hobbled home, frustrated and angry. So [...]
