Jumping.

Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.” -Isaiah 43:18-19

Dear Redeemed,

 

Today, I choose to jump.

Today, I choose to let go of what has held me down.

Today, I choose to see myself as how God has made me to be.

Beloved, cherished, wanted.

I have finally come to the realization that the only way out is to jump: to forgive totally.

It has taken me longer than I would have liked, but the pain cut deep and I was sure forgiveness was impossible.

But God intervened, and reminded me of what weighed me down.

Even more important than that, He reminded me that what weighed me down was one of His children too.

Also beloved, cherished, and wanted. 

I am sorry I lost sight of that.

I forgive you today, and I forgive myself.

Holding on has hindered. But today, I will no longer let it.

We are free, we are redeemed, I jump.

In Omnia Paratus.

Love,

Redeemed.
