Jeremiah's personality is the picture of a chronically depressed person. Yet while he did suffer frequent melancholy, this was a reflection of the great stress and sacrifices of his life, not of inherent weakness. A prophet's lonely life of being the bearer of bad news was a heavy and depressing burden to bear, especially for one so deeply concerned and tenderhearted as Jeremiah.

This month on the "Inspiration for a Lifetime" Facebook page, the topic is forgiveness so I thought this was a perfect way to end the last week of it.
This month has been a blessing for me to really search my heart and forgive in ways that I haven't. I realized that I have struggled with forgiving myself for years which not only lead me to continue in sin in the past, but also to easily find fault in others or not have ability to forgive. I am not saying that things were not spitefully done to me for no reason, but I also did some sinful things to others as well (which also stemmed from past unforgiveness). I think we build up pride and we forget we ourselves need to be forgiven and that God has forgives us daily.
Luke 23:34 "Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots."
Ephesians 4:32 "And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you."
Matthew 6:15 "But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses."

Then Peter came up and said to him, “Lord, how often will my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? As many as seven times?” Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you seven times, but seventy times seven. “Therefore the kingdom of heaven may be compared to a king who wished to settle accounts with his servants. When he began to settle, one was brought to him who owed him ten thousand talents. And since he could not pay, his master ordered him to be sold, with his wife and children and all that he had, and payment to be made.
Ask God to help you choose to be kind, especially when you don't feel like it.
Man doesn't get it. By nature, man tends to think that God is harsh and unkind. Nothing could be further from the truth.??
God is extremely kind, and incredibly loving. Many people simply don't "realize that God's kindness leads you toward repentance."
The more we know God's goodness, the more we trust Him. The more we trust Him, the easier it is for us to put our lives into His hands. Only by placing our lives in His hands can we open the way for Him to save us, bless us and work through us, so that His wonderful will can be done on earth as it is done in heaven.
Being kind is a choice. You make choices every day — some big and some small. Think about all the choices you've made in the last 30 minutes. Which food to eat first at dinner, whether to sit on the floor or stay in your chair for this devotion, and who to share compliments about — those were all choices. God wants you to choose to be kind. The Bible tells about a kind man named Boaz who shared his harvest by letting a poor woman named Ruth gather from his fields (Ruth 2:8). Sometimes kindness is a choice to share what you have with someone in need. Other times, it's a decision to encourage someone with a sincere compliment.

God has commended us in Eph 4:32: “And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.”
Forgiving your spouse is not saying that you are not hurt, that you approve of what your spouse did or said nor is it saying that the incident didn't happen. What forgiveness does for you and your spouse is:
Release you from holding on to the hurt
Release them from keeping a record of your spouse hurtful incidents
Release your spouse from receiving hurtful remarks and actions from YOU
But is this level of forgiveness earned or expected? Should your spouse automatically be forgiven or should they earn your forgiveness.
Keisha Hodges will join in the discussion to discuss forgiving your spouse the Godly way.

in The Bible
Therefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbor: for we are members one of another.
Be angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:
Neither give place to the devil.
Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labor, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needs.
Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.
And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, by whom you are sealed unto the day of redemption.
Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamor, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice:
And be you kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake has forgiven you.
The Power of forgiveness.
Matthew 6:14 -15
"If you forgive others the wrongs they have done to you, your Father in heaven will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others, then your Father will not forgive the wrongs you have done.
Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.

TOPIC: How To Overcome The Spirit of Anger
TODAY'S DISCUSSION: Have you ever felt like you were getting ready to lose control and say or do something that you would regret? Most of us have been in that place at some point in our lives, where something or someone was pushing our buttons trying to get a negative reaction from us, and sadly too many times we yielded and lost the battle of self-control. Don’t allow the Spirit of Anger to manipulate you into doing and saying things that leave a bad taste in your mouth and have you in a foul, unpleasant and negative attitude. Listen and learn more about how you can overcome the spirit of anger in any circumstance or situation. SCRIPTURE TEXT: (Ephesians 4:31) Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: (4:32) And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.

This is a rebroadcast. Shalom and welcome to The Wisdom Maidens Radio Show. Today we will be speaking on respect.What does it mean to respect each other and how it it given? As Elders, Imas, Ahkis, Ahkotees in the Family of Ysrayl, we must get past the mind sets we have been taught here in Babylon. Eph. 4:29-32 says "Let no corrupt word come out of your mouth, but only such as is good for the use of building up, so as to impart what is pleasant to the hearers. 30) And do not greive the Set-apart Spirit of Yah, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. 31) Let all bitterness, and wrath, and displeasure, and uproar, and slander be put away from you, along with all evil. 32) And be kind towards one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as Yah also forgave you in Messiah.
