The Upper Room Daily Devotional For Today 20 July 2022A Good Day to Forgive By Luz Ángela Galeano M. (Valle del Cauca, Colombia)

TOPIC: A Good Day to Forgive

Luz Ángela Galeano M. (Valle del Cauca, Colombia)

TODAY’S READING

1 John 2:7-14

KEY VERSE: The one who claims to be in the light while hating a brother or sister is in the darkness even now. The person loving a brother and sister stays in the light, and there is nothing in the light that causes a person to stumble.  1 John 2:9-10 (CEB)

MESSAGE

I was young when I met the person who would become my husband. Unfortunately, my husband’s mother and I did not get along, and the tension was evident through her words and actions. This situation affected our marriage, and my husband and I separated. The rift left a deep wound. But after some time, my husband and I reconciled.

Over time, prayer has deepened my faith, bringing me a greater understanding of God’s purpose in my life. Prayer has also been central to changes in my relationship with my mother-in-law. She is now in poor health and suffers from dementia. So during my devotional time, I offer prayers of mercy and forgiveness for her. When I do, I can sense the presence of the Holy Spirit.

Praying for my mother-in-law in this way has been liberating for me, and God has blessed me with a profound sense of peace in my heart because “darkness is passing away and the true light already shines” (1 John 2:8).

I will forgive others because God forgives me.
