forgiveness – remember no more

namaste rainbow

Just another traveler on life’s highway, hanging out it the slow lane.  It’s quiet, it’s peaceful.   Beyond the horizon is peace, it’s calling my name.  Green pastures, still waters, my cup overflows.

 

 

“…..I will forgive their iniquity; and I will remember their sin no more.”  Jeremiah 31:34

Forgiveness.  It is commanded.
We ask it in our prayers,
“Forgive my shortcomings as I forgive others.”
And then, remember no more.
Am I capable of not merely forgiving,
but remembering no more?
Do I hang on to those transgressions against me?
What good does that do for me?
Perhaps, I feel vindicated.
Perhaps, I feel superior
when I return to past transgressions against me.
I am told that my sobriety does not benefit,
that my sober walk does not mature.
I must remember no more.
I must forgive and remember no more.
Can I do that?

“If we ask, God will certainly forgive our derelictions.  But in no case does he render us white as snow and keep us that way without OUR COOPERATION.  That is something we are supposed to be willing to work toward ourselves.  He asks only that we try as best we know how to make progress in the building of character.”  AS BILL SEES IT, Bill Wilson, pg. 204

    When you think about it. God must forgive us every single day of our lives.

  2. I like this article https://spiritualfruitwithoutreligion.com/2018/02/16/spiritual-immune-system/ Forgiveness is like the body’s immune system. It builds antibodies to keep past “ills” away, it remembers in order to give life. The other part of immunity is the body’s motion that creates antibodies (they say exercise is healthy) As we practice spiritual living it keeps us spiritually alive. Thanks for posting your words and music!

    There is nothing greater that I can do for myself than to forgive someone else.
