Today's Thoughts...

A Levesque #61 - Last Rope

 I can't even begin to describe the feelings that I have built up inside of me lately.  This is going to be personal mainly because God gifted me with the ability to not care about your opinion, and this blog isn't for people who know me per se.  It's mainly for my children so they can look and see everything will work out.   NO MATTER WHAT THERE WILL ALWAYS BE HOPE. I've been struggling. Never have I seen such selfishness. Never have I seen so much greed. Never have I seen so much betrayal.  Never have I seen families ripped apart because of ego and pride.   My house and my family will not be torn apart in the process.  We serve the Lord, and no weapon formed against us will prosper.  We are formed on a rock, not sand to blow away when trials come our way.   Somedays will be hard. Shit, somedays are hard. Somedays it will rain. Then, Somedays the sun will shine so bright you'll forget that it was ever raining.  Never give up on those you love.   Pray for them from

Do you deserve forgiveness?

How many of you have been wronged by someone you love?

The topic I would like to discuss today is forgiveness.  I have touched on the topic in a previous post very briefly trying to help you see things from another's point of view (empathy).  In the article, I touched on parents and trying to understand what problems that they had to endure through.  That article just jumped to the front of the line and did not really explain some other very important details that will help you to forgive yourself and others.  

The most important detail is YOU ARE NOT PERFECT.

I want you to think back about something that you have done that was wrong to someone you love.  Can you actually give reasons or excuses as to why you did it?  

Did you say, "I did it because something they did?"
Did you say, "I did it because I was wrong?"

Do you react to people by hurting them, or is hurting them a choice you make?  I don't want you to give me an answer unless it's in the comments :-).  I want you to think. 

I want you to think about yourself.  
I want you to think about your actions.  

Think about all the wrong things that you have done yourself, and the reason you have done them.  It is impossible to ask for forgiveness from the people you love if you are unwilling to offer them the forgiveness they need to love and grow.

Actually taking accountability of yourself and the things that you are doing is the first step to forgiveness.  I truly believe that in my soul.  If you are not taking accountability for the wrong you have done, at least with yourself.  You will never be able to start forgiving yourself and those around you.  


I want to show you that it is not just you.  After reading through some interesting information I came across a study done all around the world with a range of demographics.  

84.7% say there isn't enough forgiveness in the world.  If you read through the study you will see families aren't forgiving, people aren't forgiving, and even our environment is unforgiving.  

I think that in order to achieve happiness, you must first learn to forgive.  I would love to hear stories of inspiration if you ever wanted to shoot them to me.  

Love you,
