 Spring Forward



Steve and I were flying home from Phoenix, Arizona, the morning that Daylight Saving Time 2013 began.  Our friends and family cautiously reminded us the evening before to set our clocks forward so we did not miss our plane.  So, we DID and we were so thankful for their reminder UNTIL we arrived at the Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport four hours early for our flight, due to the fact that Arizona does not observe Daylight Saving Time...Oh, you live and learn!!!


During this time of “Springing Forward”, which none of us are extremely crazy about,  I am reminded of Philippians 3:13

“Dear brothers and sisters, I am still not all I should be, but I am focusing all my energies on this one thing:
Forgetting the past and looking forward or (springing forward) to what lies ahead.”


 I have never been one to harbor unforgiveness and I have learned through the years that forgiveness is an ACT, but healing is a PROCESS that takes much time.  I am quick to forgive.  However, because God blessed me with a healthy mind and a great memory, I can still recall every detail of the offenses that really caused me a lot of pain.


Before leaving for the conference in Phoenix, where one of the topics I was to speak on was titled the Trap of Offense, the Lord tenderly spoke to me saying:


“Real love, MY love, keeps no record of the offenses committed against us.”
1 Corinthians 13:5



It was a moment to go deeper!  A moment to even relinquish offenses to my Lord.  I had relinquished my offenders but in some way I had held on to their offenses somewhere deep inside my mind. I physically found myself placing those things at the feet of Jesus and asking Him to take them from me.  It was so freeing, my friends.  So powerful.



It Is Time To Spring Forward and Do Some Spring Cleaning!

Time to open the windows and allow the SON to shine through!  Isn’t the SON so refreshing as His rays beam through our hearts, cleansing us and making all things new.


I encourage you to forget those things which are behind you today...Offenses, guilt, heartache, bitterness, self-pity, disappoinments, etc.  Physically give them to Jesus and Spring Forward to what lies ahead.  You will never regret it and you will find yourself free and living in the blessed place.  I love you...
