It’s Good for Us

“Someone at work, for instance, has made a sarcastic, hurtful comment. You feel hostile, bitter, and resentful. Those are attitudes God wants our permission to change in us. He can change us by exposing our weaknesses; if we are sensitive to Him and cooperate with His will, He can use times of struggle for His glory. He can make us better instead of bitter. I recommend using a simple prayer I learned from Dr. Neil T. Anderson to help you understand and experience how forgiveness can visit the core of your emotions. It goes like this: ‘Dear God, I forgive (fill in the person’s name)_______________for making me feel (describe how you felt at the time of the offense. List every emotion, allowing God to mentally take you back to the time it happened) _______________.’”
