It’s hard to forgive someone who has hurt us, but holding onto past hurts can actually hurt us more: unforgiveness is linked to heart disease, high blood pressure, stress, and poor mental health. Learning to forgive can set both parties free, and Jesus shows us how.
Sometimes we think life would be better if we got everything we wanted, but often, our desires are not all they’re cracked up to be. As we learn to pray, “Thy will be done,” we find that God’s will and desires for the world are better than we could have imagined.
If you want a deeper spiritual connection, there’s no better place to start than the prayer Jesus taught his disciples. It is familiar and simple, but it still has the power to change your life today.
