    Reblogged this on Serenaded Softly and commented:

    “30 And Joseph made haste; for his bowels did yearn upon his brother: and he sought where to weep; and he entered into his chamber, and wept there.

    31 And he washed his face, and went out, and refrained himself, and said, Set on bread…”

    Theresa, thank you for reminding me of this encouraging story of faith and grace. Joseph’s forgiveness of his brothers is a reminder of Christ’s amazing grace towards us. May I not only forgive those who have hurt me, but may I be part of the reason they too are saved–may I offer up my prayers rather than any bitterness.

    This brings tears, dear woman of the Word. Just thinking about Joseph’s story and then God sending His only Son for us . . .tears. It also has me crying as I think about Christ in us . . .that we too are each a type of Christ, His ambassadors on earth. Love and thanks and prayers!

      Oh Deb, I just loved what you said about each of us being a type of Christ! That was so powerful!

      Love and Blessings,

    Forgiveness, reconciliation and grace. May we all be so kind and forgiving when we’ve been hurt. Thank you, Theresa, for this post.

      Yes, Cynthia, that is my desire, too.

      It is a miraculous thing that we can take our hurts to the Lord and confess the conflicts and challenges that come as a result of our wounds, and that hinder us, and actually find abundant grace which enables us to endure—to bear all things.

      Love and Blessings,
