Letting go of stubborn pride….
Do I want to be right? Or do I want to be happy? Sometimes letting go of our stubborn pride is the hardest thing to do. We can choose to hold on to grudges. Or we can choose to let go for the sake of freedom and peace.
This doesn’t mean that we are saying the other person is “right.” It is saying that we are choosing peace and happiness for ourselves and our home. Freedom from anger and quarreling.
When we struggle with letting go of blended family issues, we can take it to God and ask Him for His help with letting go and forgiveness.
2 Corinthians 13:11 “Finally, brothers and sisters, rejoice! Strive for full restoration, encourage one another, be of one mind, live in peace. And the God of love and peace will be with you.”
Ephesians 2:14 “For He himself is our peace, who has made the two one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility.”
Dear Heavenly Father, You know my heart and mind. Please forgive me for harboring anger and ill will towards all of these human beings that you have blessed me with. You God, are the Prince of Peace. May you pour out your blessings upon these people. Help me have willingness to let go of the anger. Please help me embrace your peace; peace of mind, body, and soul. Thank you Lord. I claim your peace and forgiveness in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
