Worship Interludes: Forgiveness [Feb 20, 2017]

Forgiveness.   Jesus, in teaching his disciples, taught us to pray saying “forgive us our sins as we forgive those who have sinned against us”.

This is a topic that came up over the weekend.  Forgiveness is paramount to freedom.   Holding onto bitterness and resentment is like poison to our souls.

Of all the people we may need to forgive, perhaps the most difficult is forgiving ourselves.

I meditated on these thoughts as I played this interlude.  I tried to think of those who have hurt me or disappointed me.   I recalled some hurts and areas where I may have bitterness, resentment, and unforgiveness in my heart.   I also chose to forgive myself for the failures I’ve experienced and where I have disappointed myself.  I began to wrestle with this and you can sense and hear this in the music around 3:00 in.

I hope that as you listen to this interlude you will be able to release the hurts and pains caused by others, including those you caused yourself.   May you find freedom in forgiveness.
