If you came over from my new friend’s blog, the Devotional Diva, I’m so glad to meet you.
And I hope it’s the beginning of a new friendship.
You see, in just three days a month of extraordinary forgiveness stories will be launched right here in the Forgive to Live Challenge. So I hope you come back, especially if forgiving is something you long to do.
Forgiveness isn’t just an act of the will, it’s a desire of God’s heart for you.
We are called to live fully, and with an unburdened heart, and forgiveness is the path that leads to that freedom.
Each week in the month of July you’ll hear from people who felt as if their circumstances were to big to forgive, and yet they longed to live beyond the burden they carried due to their past, or another person’s actions.
In addition to the stories, you’ll be given practical steps and spiritual and scriptural power tools that offer tangible help as you take these important steps to living life unburdened.
If you are new, I’d love to meet you. Please leave a comment and let me check out your blog, or your story, or pray for you. While you are at it, subscribe to the feed (on the sidebar) so this can show up in your news feed or inbox each week.
If you’d like, here is a free chapter of The Unburdened Heart: Finding the Freedom to Forgiveness.
There are a couple ways we can connect as we go through the Challenge: Twitter and Facebook.
And I can’t wait to reconnect when you come back this next Monday as we begin the #forgivetolive challenge together.
I’m not new, but I look forward to the challenge. 🙂
I’m delighted and humbled to have found this website and to connect with new Christian sisters that are passionate about their love for Jesus! I have a forgiveness story that is still ongoing that I would LOVE to share with others!
Loved your sample chapter so I bought the Kindle version! Looking forward to reading it!
What an amazing challenge! Thank you for doing this 🙂
I have read this book twice now from cover to cover and I treasure this book! What a life changing message! I thank God for you Suzie, for your compassion and wisdom and for being able to speak so gently about circumstances, events and persons that have negatively and tragically altered or impacted our lives in a manner that so many of us struggle to hide and cover up not only from ourselves but from the rest of the world. Although I am still a work in progress the walls that I so carefully constructed around my heart over many years are now coming down and I am experiencing the freedom of an unburdened heart!
“I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.” Ezekiel 37: 26
I am reading your book now and know it’s what I need. There is victory through forgiveness! Thank you for allowing God to use you! Have a great day!
sorry bvut i wanrt to take the challenge of forgiveness but could not founf where to read the stories and so, could you help me? thanks !!!
I found out about your site on Twitter. Just downloaded your book and am reading it now. I have read A LOT of books on forgiveness as it has been a major theme of my life (I have an abusive mom) so when I started reading I thought I might not “hear” anything new. Not the case! I am getting so much out of your book!!! BTW, I did a whole series on forgiveness on my blog a few years back. https://unafamiliaalaskena.blogspot.com/search/label/31%20Days%20of%20Forgiveness I look forward to reading Forgive to Live.
Thanks, Debbie. That was my hope. I also have read many great books on forgiveness, but sometimes the them was “Jesus said do it, so do it”, and I wanted to know why Jesus thought this so key for His followers, and the answers to that question blew me away, helping me not to think, “I have to forgive”, but “I get to forgive, with His help.”
I will look forward to following your link and reading what you had to say on forgiveness. Bless you, and thank you for taking the time to comment today. I hope you come back!
