    LOL…

    Text your X and tell them, “F______ You.”

    Yeah, could definitely not get away with that at Esco. Pretty sure I’d never try. Daniel, you should go for it at the youth camp next week!

    Pastor Daniel;
    Did you post this? Very bold … notice how all the people came alive … they’ll be talking about this sermon for some time … but if someone didn’t hear this sermon and the people did as their pastor told them to do … there could be come black eyes and ruined relationships … just saying ….

    Helen,

    I did post it. It was funny and off color. No one will forget it nor will it actually change a heart. It’s the sword cutting both ways on this kind of thing. Funny, yes. unforgettable, yes. Transforming, no.

    … i was drawn to the title on forgiveness as i’m really struggling with this and perhaps have been all my life… such tragic things have happened to me that i’ve become an angry, unforgiving, bitter person and didn’t even realize it until put into pressing circumstances … again and again i ask God to forgive me and to help me forgive, but feel like i’m hurting more and more people with my bitterness born out of hurtful feelings of harsh rejection from people i have let get close to me… it’s a terrible place to be but i feel like i don’t want to let anyone close to me and push anyone away who tries… makes me wonder if i’m really a Christian at all …. just saying… if it weren’t for God’s grace i don’t think i would even be here today… Jesus is so good – i know i don’t deserve His amazing and completely merciful GRACE – it’s all that keeps me going … so you can see why i was looking to read others perspective on God’s forgiveness … i don’t think i’m the only one who struggles this way … it’ hard to even go to church … but God does meet me there and always blesses me…. though at times i leave feeling worse as He’s burning off the dross, so to speak…. so i keep on keeping on with the hope that i will continue to surrender all to God and heal me from all that i’m holding onto that feeds the fire of unforgiveness, bitterness and the bondage that they produce in my life ….
