RELEASE OF FORGIVENESS

ACKNOWLEDING THE PAIN

“When Someone Causes Hurt”

Selections from Genesis 37 (NRSV)

 

The first step in a journey to the release of forgiveness is to acknowledge the hurt.

WAITING TO BE REMEMBERED

“When It Hits the Fan”

Matthew 18:21-35 (The Message)

 

Forgiving others isn’t some sort of requirement to get into heaven. Rather, forgiving others is the outpouring of God’s grace that overflows through us

DREAMS COMING TRUE

“React or Respond: It’s Your Choice”

Genesis 42:1-20 (NRSV)

 

When you need to offer forgiveness and know that it is beyond your human capacity, go to God who gives what you need to see you through this journey of forgiveness.

THE ROLLER COASTER RIDE

“The Rollercoaster Called Reconciliation"

Selections from Genesis 45:1 (NRSV)

 

 

Reconcilitation takes two people. Only after both parties have repented of any wrongdoing toward the other can they come close again in relationship- that's reconciliation.

GRACE AND BOUNDARIES

“Big Girls (and Boys) Do Cry- A Lot!”

Genesis 47:11-12; Genesis 49:28-50:1

 

 

Joseph’s dialogue after he reveals himself to his brothers gives us a model for reconciling conversations. It shows the power of God at work in us to “overcome evil with good.”

MOVING FORWARD

“For Good”

Genesis 50:1-21 Romans 8:26-28 (The Message)

 

God invites us to lay down our “why” about the situation and ask “what?” What can I do to be used by God through this situation to bless others? What will God do with this mix of life situations?
