The 06/02/13 Joy Jar

1 Jun

The only way that some can express their insecurity, fear, and inability to really relate to others is through demeaning them, insulting them or trying to embarrass them. Moi got the moniker, OLD FART from a slur meant to drag moi down. Really. When slurred or slighted just remember God always sees the best in us and we are very precious in His sight.

You meant evil against me, but God meant it for good in order to bring about this present result. Genesis 50:20 (NASB)

It is by and through the Grace of God that moi’s future is so bright, she’s gotta wear shades.

Today’s deposit into the ‘Joy Jar’ is the incredible healing power of forgiveness.

“Always forgive your enemies; nothing annoys them so much.”

Oscar Wilde

“People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.

If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.

If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.

The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.

For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.”

Mother Teresa

“The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.”

Mahatma Gandhi, All Men are Brothers: Autobiographical Reflections

“The truth is, unless you let go, unless you forgive yourself, unless you forgive the situation, unless you realize that the situation is over, you cannot move forward.”

Steve Maraboli, Unapologetically You: Reflections on Life and the Human Experience

“True forgiveness is when you can say, “Thank you for that experience.”

Oprah Winfrey

“Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it.”

Mark Twain

“Forgiveness is not an occasional act, it is a constant attitude.”

Martin Luther King Jr.

“To be a Christian means to forgive the inexcusable because God has forgiven the inexcusable in you.”

C.S. Lewis
