Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.
Let’s work to let go of our past. Let go of those people who have no place in our present, or our future. Let go of those pains that haunt us. Let go of our anger, bitterness, jealousy, envy, and rage— for it only slows us up, drains us, ages us, and causes us painful inflictions. Today, let’s work to free ourselves so that we can be open and receptive to our blessings from God.
Breathe. Breathe again, inhale this time deeply. Now exhale.
Can you already feel the weight lifting off of your shoulders? I can and it feels amazing. Make it an amazing day. Thank God for a new day to celebrate and rejoice in His name. I love you all!
Father, thank You for this day. A new day. A day to start fresh with good intentions, good thoughts, and acts of kindness random and planned. Today I make the effort to speak kindly of and begin the process of forgiving those who have wronged me directly and indirectly. Today I make the effort to say a prayer for those who go against me whether in fear or malice. Today I push out my bitterness, rage, jealousy, envy, and anger against others and instead replace it with Your loving peace and joy.
My time will not be spent thinking and worrying about, or stressing over what someone else is doing or not doing. Today I will begin anew and pray for the strength to look at my past, acknowledge what was, and then move forward with both feet planted in my present, and the courage to accept what comes in my future. Thank You Father. Amen.
