Years and years have passed since the time of my devotion. I am old and limited in my activities, but I still believe that we must be forgiving to all who mistreat us in any way.
I’ve found that still, all these years later, I may think I’ve truly forgiven someone, only to find that I am attaching conditions to that forgiveness. God doesn’t do that. If I’m forgiven, I’m absolutely forgiven, and my sin is removed from me as far as the east is from the west. (Psalm 103:12
So, if we forgive someone, we must completely forgive them. And that takes work and prayer.
I haven’t left my trailer for over 3 months, and I don’t know who I need to forgive for that. But God has blessed me, I have plenty to eat, a warm (or cool) place to live, and friends who often check up on me and offer me their help. God is always good.

Emmaus helped me laugh again, and it brought joy back to my life after the loss of my child. I am now stronger than ever in my walk with the Lord. And to this day, I continue to sponsor pilgrims to The Walk to Emmaus. In my local church, I have led our discipleship team and have had the opportunity to start new Sunday school classes and various women’s ministries. ¡De Colores!”
