Choose Pre-Forgiveness!

by Hazel Straub

Today, I choose a new life of pre-forgiveness, before anyone offends, the choice is “already forgiven.” No offense will lodge in me because the prewash spray of sending away the offense,  was chosen for application to others and myself.

God’s love, mercy and forgiveness were given to me, although I did not deserve it.  I choose to extend pre-forgiveness to others, including myself. It washes away, all the hurt, anger and desire to retaliate. My thoughts center on the mercy of God towards me rather than how I or others have hurt me.

Jesus, on the cross, said, “Father forgive them for they know not what they do.” (Luke 23:34) This forgiveness brought you and me, into the kingdom of God. Stephen, the first Christian martyr, while being stoned to death, asked that those participating would be forgiven and not have this held against them. Saul of Tarsus’ transformation, from a terrorist to a mighty believer in Jesus, known as Paul, was the answer to this prayer. Allow Christ, the Forgiver living inside of you, to help you forgive.

Love mixed with mercy and forgiveness has great power. It changes not only our lives, but also the lives of those we choose to pre-forgive and release. We can live today, without the heaviness of bitterness and enjoy restful sleep. Mercy given to others, reaps a harvest of mercy!

  7. I love this idea of pre-forgiveness. I am going to implement it first at home with my 21 year old. Often times he has a tone that sounds like he is implying I am stupid. I react defensively. But no more. I am going to really try this. Thank you

      • Praise God! So often the other person wants to get a reaction so they can control you. Pre-forgiveness makes for no negative reaction and peace reigns! Yes!!!
