Our Purposefully Forgiving Workshop was absolutely amazing! The Holy Spirit was definitely present & our members were able to knock down walls & begin the process of healing from current & past pains.
We want to give a huge THANK YOU to our wonderful guest speakers, Gloria Harding & Lois Hughes, who shared their powerful testimonies & many words of encouragement for our members. They also blessed the moms with beautiful gift bags filled with tons of awesome goodies! We had the privilege of hearing Gloria’s daughter, Morgan, sing. Her voice is so angelic & her friend playing guitar was amazing!!
Big thanks to our childcare volunteers, Kim Newman & Enrique Yamamoto. Without your support we wouldn’t have been able to experience this powerful evening together!
Below are some take aways from the meeting:
What is unforgiveness?
A grudge against someone who has offended or hurt you.
What can you do to be released from UnForgiveness?
Ask God to reveal any UnForgiveness in your heart, there may be things that you think you are over! Remember, Jesus died on the cross for you & I! He paid the ultimate price for forgiveness. When we refuse to forgive, we give the enemy access to our lives & we create a wall that blocks us from properly communicating with God.
There is good news! We can choose to forgive! “Forgiveness is about WINNING & taking the victory that God has for us & applying it to every single area of our lives.”
Why is it so important?
-It’s a seed of obedience
-First step in healing
-Releases the burden from us & allows God to take control
-Brings peace to our hearts
-Allows for God to communicate with us properly
-Mentioned over 200 times in the bible
Ephesians 6:12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
Remember that we cannot control others actions, but we ARE responsible on how we react to situations. We make the decision to allow feelings to manifest in us, or release them to God. At times, we may find ourselves the offender in a situation, so need to always walk in forgiveness so God can forgive us.
We hope you are encouraged just as much as we were last night!
