Let it Go!!

Mark 11:25
"Whenever you stand up to pray, forgive whatever you have against anyone, so that your Father in heaven will forgive your sins."

This verse is one one of the books I am reading and the section is titled "Let it drop". It immediately struck me. In the amplified bible it says "Let it drop." This spoke so directly to my heart. I pray for forgiveness, but I am a Grudgekeeper. So this is an area where I need to do some work! I have learned to release many of my grudges but I am of course a work in progress. But something in this verse became very real... I don't want to be the bitter, nasty old person who has all of the held down by silly grudges. So I am going to make an honest effort to Let it Go. Or as they say in the book...

Jesus is telling us to:

Drop it, Leave it, Let it go, Stop talking about it!!!!

Mark 11:25 from Amplified Bible

And whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him {and} let it drop (leave it, let it go), in order that your Father Who is in heaven may also forgive you your [own] failings {and} shortcomings {and} let them drop.
