You can call your counselor ⚖️

Home | A Miracle Every Day | Miracles | You can call your counselor ⚖️

Today, co-writer Paul Marc Goulet wrote the message of “A Miracle Every Day”. I pray his message and audio will bless you today.

Have you ever felt like you needed legal representation? Maybe you were wronged, cheated or swindled. Maybe you were abused, falsely accused or bullied. People can be so cruel, and it’s normal to feel the need for help. 

Many years ago, my wife and I were struggling. Our first five years of marriage were very tough. We were both so young and ill-prepared for a life together. Eventually, we scheduled a counseling appointment with a professor from the graduate school that I was attending. 

I expected him to defend me and back all my well-rehearsed offenses, but I was rudely awakened by his wisdom. After hearing our complaints, Dr. Ed Decker said something that course-corrected our lives: “You two need to forgive each other.” It sounds too simple, right? You’re right, sometimes the Bible is simple but hard.

Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.” (Luke 6:37, NKJV) 

Please allow me to put some practical steps to the concept of forgiveness. Dr. Decker explained there are three steps to true forgiveness:

  1. The Act of Forgiveness is the first step. It sounds like this: “Lord, I choose to forgive my dad for the pain he caused me, in the name of Jesus.” 
  2. The Process of Forgiveness continues this first step seven times seventy. You forgive again and again until…
  3. You reach the State of Forgiveness. You reach this stage when you can think about the offenses, and the pain is gone. 

I’m praying that you will be able to start or continue the forgiveness process today. It’s liberating. You may not be able to change people, but you can be empowered by letting go and letting God. 

Forgiveness is not freeing others from their sins; it frees you. 

You’re a miracle.

    Thank you reminding me about i forgiveness and the transformation that ONLY God can work out in my heart. Accepting God’s invitation to learn about forgiveness, using and saying words like, “I forgive”, repeating it over and over until it no longer hurts, feeling the freedom from the load, and finally truly living out the transformation into a new life of Jesus’ character.
