I completely agree with this quote. We can't truly love if we don't forgive. 
Forgive others. Forgive ourselves.

Life is tricky... it's messy and at times annoying when it doesn't go our way. We can become stubborn and make excuses for it. Holding grudges and staying angry. 
Or we can forgive. Move forward... trying to learn how to love the messy parts because those are the parts that make you into the person God intended for you to be. 
"But when you are praying first forgive anyone you are holding a grudge against, so that your Father in heaven will forgive your sins, too." {Mark 11:25

When I read that a few nights ago I felt everything settle into place. That's what God wants. He wants to forgive us for our sins... that's why He chose to die for us but for God to forgive us we have to forgive others first. Turning our hearts toward our heavenly Father which is the ultimate love. 

I'm starting to realize that when we forgive someone we are showing what God is doing within our heart. Sharing His love in a sincere act of kindness. Even when it's the hardest thing to do... we do it, because God shows us how with His endless grace and undying love. 

Forgiveness = Love
and LOVE is a beautiful thing!
