Two words; life changing. Two words; healing. Two words; really, really tough! Two words; so necessary.
Saying these words and hearing it said to us can help heal a wounded heart and spirit. No one is perfect so it is imperative to have these words in our toolbox to reach in and take out. The words, I’m sorry, can sometimes be just behind a set of gritted teeth. It is isn’t easy to say those two words, yet the benefits far outweigh holding back.
It isn’t taking blame for something we haven’t done, and not useful to say those words that hold no meaning. Voicing it with sincerity builds character and respect. A humbled heart is a freeing heart.
TWO LITTLE WORDS can help us move ahead in life,
- When we have lost our temper with the kids. It can be like a salve to their spirit.
- When we tell our ex-spouse we are sorry for our part in the marriage demise. (There may not be an opportunity to say this due to circumstances, but let God know). It will be a balm to the soul even if the ex may never acknowledge it or continue to blame you.
- When we goof and say unkind words to the people in our life. Relationships can bring out the best and worst in people. Having those two words at the tip of our tongue can bring about a positive outcome.
Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another so that you may be healed. The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much. James 5:16
- When we blame God for our state of being a single mother because we aren’t seeing any solution. Confessing our attitude will release us to live a life of true freedom.
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9
Having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ will be the foundation for a freeing life. It reminds of a trapped butterfly released to soar to what it was called to be. It will guide us into all Truth, will help us raise our kids, and help us when we need to say,
- Ask God to guide in all your relationships
- When you need to say, I’m Sorry, ask God to prepare the way for an opportunity
- Teach your kids to say, I’m Sorry when it is needed
- Praise God that He forgives us when we say we are sorry to Him.
YOU CAN DO THIS!
